1. Will we see a better effort in front of Enroth than we saw last night?
The Sabres were absolutely horrendous for the first 50 minutes of last night's game, but they were playing Carolina, so it's cool. Tonight, they won't have that luxury as the juggernaut Bruins roll in to town.
2. Will Jhonas Enroth's silver medal help give him the power to turn his horrible season around?
His individual play hasn't been the worst thing we've ever seen, but the team just does not win when Enroth is in net. It'll be even tougher tonight against Boston.
3. Ville Leino on the top line? Really?
Don't blame me, man. It's just the projected roster from the team website.
