‘The Hurricanes don’t have any great defencemen — no Wade Redden and no Zdeno Chara — but they do have seven veterans (though Laviolette probably will use only six today) who share ice time fairly equally and stabilize the game. As a result, the Sabres won’t be making any serious attempts to get favourable offensive matchups.’
