    Back to back games, going against better team with better talent.

    Would like to see a strong start for a change 'cause we probably won't have gas in the tank to finish like we did against Florida.

    LHC, I think they'll come out energized due to the game last night. I think they *could* play sustained if they do that. However a team with stammer and MSL will kill us if we don't possess.

    No one but Kaleta skated today; Weber (thumb) out long-term, Leino a possibility; here's Rolston's pre-game presser:

    Tampa fan wishing you good luck tonight, looking forward to a good game.

    Some infos:
    Bishop in net tonight
    Aulie and Barberio in the game, Sustr scratched (hopefully the other two are not rusty). And Labrie is scratched as well, so 11F-7D.

    Going to the game tonight with the girlfriend and some family. Cant wait. Tampa has a potent offense, but their d is just not good. Always allow breakaways. Bishop has played well this year so I expect a tough game.

    Or is this one of those games where during the first intermission, Paul Hamilton says "How do you come out like that after a win last night?"

    Shots after one: Tampa 24, Buffalo 2

    That would be already our S/G average!!!! Tampa 2 shots, Buffalo 1 shot seems more realistic. The score would be 2:1 Buffalo, because Carle passes so hard that Gudas is unable to handle it again and the puck would trickle past Bishop (look no further than the last 5 min in regulation against CHicago) :sarcasm:

    Wishing my favorite Eastern team good luck tonight! Btw, is Miller already confirmed for net? Best regards, Enroth fantasy owner.

    If Leino comes back tonight, where does he fit in? Does he take the other spot on the 4th line or is someone else bumped down?

    I'd say Miller's probable to start, as Enroth started last night and it's the second leg of a back-to-back. However, I didn't hear Rolston confirm Miller as a starter, nor was there a morning skate to indicate otherwise. The only report I saw confirming Miller in goal was the NHL.com preview.

    Leino has been activated off IR. He skated with McCormick and Stafford on the fourth line at Thursday's practice, so that's where I'd project him.

    Vogl tweeted yesterday that Miller was starting Saturday. (I'm on my phone, so I can't post a link.) Tough to tell what he was basing that on, though.

    Flynn a nice story, but 2 points in 12 and a minus 4. Doesnt belong with Hodgson and Vanek. I give Leino his shot on that line.

    If Leino looks good tonight I'd be in favor of that. I like easing him back in on the fourth line tonight, though.
