Sabres Survivor Rules -Pick a Sabre who you believe will score a point in tonights game. If you believe the Sabres will be shutout, you may select a shutout as your pick. If you are correct, you live on. If that Sabre is held off the scoresheet, or if you pick shutout and are incorrect, you've been voted off the island. However, If all remaining players in the Survivor Game are eliminated giving us no winner based on points. A series of tiebreakers will be used to determine the winner of that Survivor Game. The tiebreaker order is as follows: Most Shots on Goal. Best +/- rating. Most PIM.Most TOI. -You can pick a player a maximum of 2 times in one game, but never consecutively. EX Ennis, Ennis NO. Ennis,Vanek,Ennis YES. Ennis,Vanek,Ennis,Vanek,Ennis NO. -Shootout goals will not be counted as points. The player you choose must record a point in regulation time or in the 5 minute overtime for it to be counted -If the Sabres are shutout, and nobody has picked a shutout for that game, the game continues on.The picks made for the game in which the Sabres were shutout apply to the next Sabres game. However, If a shutout occurs and a shutout was picked by a contestant than all contestants with player picks are eliminated. -You can pick the same Sabre as someone else did for any given game as long as you have not used that Sabre twice already. -Make your picks carefully. If you choose a Sabre who did not play in that game, you are eliminated due to that Sabre scoring 0 points in that game. -Once a Survivor game has started, nobody else can join in until that game has declared a winner. - Picks must be made a before puck drop of that hockey game. -If the thread for the next round of an ongoing Survivor game has not been posted at least 5 hours before puck drop on game day, all selections for that game are to be posted in the previous game's Survivor thread.

Jamie McBain's first goal as a Buffalo Sabre had the team up 2-1 after 40 minutes of play. However, Tampa Bay would tie the game in the third and would score the winner in OT as the Sabres would lose their fourth game in a row to start the season. Next up for the Sabres (0-3-1, 1pts) are the Columbus Blue Jackets (1-1-0, 2pts). The Jackets come to town in search of their second win in a row. Columbus will definitely be the fresher team as they've had 4 days off since their last game, a 3-2 win over the Islanders. Hodgson, McBain, Girgensons and Vanek lead the team in goals with 1 each. Hodgson and Vanek lead the team in assists with 2 each. Vanek and Hodgson lead in points with 3 each.
