    Sabres have not won back to back regulation games since Oct 25th (per WGR). Fingers crossed.

    I've got a feeling about this game. I think we see a desperate Sabre bunch tonight. 3-2 good guys. Eichs with the GWG.

    Going to Boston to see Lebron for the first time, so I'll miss this one.

    This is the most important time for the Sabres to win in regulation that I can remember this season. Please do it boys.

    Huge game for playoff implications. Can’t give them a point.

    I think the locker room know how important these games are. Come out flying and put the puck in the net.

    Hopefully we start Ullmark. He deserves another game.

    One of the more nerve-racking games this season. Don't let 'em hem you in kids.

    That is interesting.

    When Risto was dealing with his Warrior sticks blowing up all the time, he switched to a Bauer Nexus twig, as well.

    Please win in regulation, No atrocious 2nd. I want a complete game that our squad builds confidence from and helps us on our push.

    I haven't really been following but how is Linus doing health wise? Since he rushed off the ice after getting hit stopping Parise's SO attempt the other night.

    May rest him tonight if he's feeling a bit off still, even if he's earned another start.

    They have to win. Our luck can't possibly be worse than it was last time we played them. Knock on wood.

    Well, we didn't win the last game in regulation, so that streak isn't threatened here. We need to start stringing together some Ws, however we can get them, to stay in the playoff race though. Let's go Buffalo!

    Carolina improving its roster with in season trades while Botts is still figuring out how to be a GM.

    Actually, I really, really, really like this!!

    Home whites are one of the things I've always loved about hockey. (Perhaps lost to this generation because of 3rd Jersey "marketing needs". Ef that!)

    Wish I was able to attend this one.

    Ullmark in goal confirmed. Phil’s child brain is so easy to predict.

    Ridiculous that the NHL doesn't go back to home teams wearing white. I bet if the NHL put it up for a vote, at least 75% of the vote would be in favor. Most hockey fans want to see the Flyers wearing orange, Bruins wearing black and gold, Rags wearing their blues, etc., when those teams come through town. This is so obvious, but, hey, it's the NHL.

    Ullmark at home: .900 SV%, 3.41 GAA

    October .935 SV% 2.00 GAA
    November .922 SV%, 2.93 GAA
    December .915 SV% 2.94 GAA
    January .902 SV% 3.07 GAA
    February .885 SV% 4.27 GAA

    On Thursdays .886 SV% 4.82 GAA

    Vs. Metropolitan .859 SV% 5.48 GAA

    I fear a Ullmark shutout on the way.

    Good luck tonight! Hate to see BUF and CAR fighting over what may be one spot left in the playoffs (CBJ results relevant)
