    Keep it rolling boys if we win and canes lose we tie pit for the Wild card.

    Does hutts get the start? Hopefully he plays well Jets should fight back after getting a beatdown from the sens.

    Jets are in a mini-slump with 3 straight loses, keep that going.

    Gotta win to keep pace with CAR and CBJ who are winning all their games right now.

    Brossoit played yesterday, so it’s going to be Hellebuyck vs Hutton today. Nilsson stopped 44/46 for the Sens, so Buffalo better be ready for the Jets to come out angry.

    Hopefully we work CJ back in. Want to see Scandella sat for another d his high sticking penalty could've cost us.

    If there is a god up there, please allow the Sabres to win. I don't need to here it from the league's most irritating fanbase. Not that I've ever bothered grinding these people when the Jets lose in the first place, but regardless, if the Jets win it'll be nothing but irritating, stupid remarks for days. C'mon Sabres. Save me!

    Please:
    • Scratch Scandella (so sick of watching him take stupid penalties and give away pucks like they're Halloween candy)
    • Play Smith (Tage can sit again)
    • Win

    Sobotka is fine as a 4th line winger. I think thats his spot.

    In classic sabres fashion, this game will be a hard fought OT or maybe even shootout win, and then they will start to slide and get blown out by inferior teams coming up in the schedule

    We have built fourth lines this season that involve 22/28 and score more than they allow, and are solid possession lines. Sobotka makes every line he's on a tank-tier forward line. He's not fine as a 4th line winger unless the definition of fine is occasionally being able to win in spite of him

    Truth Sobo 5 goals in his last 79 games. Averaging roughly 16 minutes of ice time. CJ Smith has 2 goals in his last 16 minutes of total ice time.

    Yeah, Okposo and Thompson have both been better on that line. Berglund also fit well there before taking off. Sobotka is useless no matter where in the line-up you try to hide him.

    Also he kills whatever possibility there was of a 4th like being a solid matchup line.

    I'm still not buying that any combo of 28 22 or whoever you throw there can shut down top lines, but throw 17 in there and its guaranteed to be trouble
