  1. The way they play they are going to turn the puck over, but they create so many great break outs with quick passes. They get intercepted though
  2. Did he take a punch to the face really hard yesterday? Saw something on twitter and it looked like he got really socked.
  3. Here are some of the top Game Notes, courtesy of @SabresPR: • This is the first of four meetings between the Sabres and Lightning this season. • Last meeting: Tampa Bay defeated Buffalo 5-0 in Tampa Bay on April 10, 2022. • Next meeting: Monday, Nov. 28 in Buffalo • The Sabres are 1-8-1 in their last 10 games against the Lightning; 2-7-1 on the road. • This is the 110th game all-time between Buffalo and Tampa Bay; Buffalo has a 56-44-9 series record. • The Sabres are 29-22-4 on the road against the Lightning all-time. • 24 of the last 27 meetings between Buffalo and Tampa Bay have been decided in regulation, including each of the last seven contests. • Buffalo has recorded a power play goal in each of their last five games. • The Sabres are 5-1-0 in games decided by three or more goals. • Rasmus Dahlin has recorded six points (2+4) in his last four games and is riding a four-game point streak. • Entering play on Saturday, Dahlin ranks second among NHL defensemen in points (15). • According to Natural Stat Trick, Dahlin has been on the ice for 89 Buffalo scoring chances in the Sabres' last five games. • JJ Peterka is riding a three-game point streak (1+2). • A point in tonight's game would give Peterka his second four-game point streak of the season. • Jack Quinn recorded the first multi-assist game of his career on Nov. 4 and has recorded three points (1+2) in his last three games. • Vinnie Hinostroza enters tonight's game with a point in three of his last four games against Tampa Bay (2+1). https://www.nhl.com/sabres/news/buffalo-sabres-tampa-bay-lightning-game-preview-november-5-2022/c-337233668
  4. DraftKings Line: Lightning -1.5 O/U 6.5 Preview: The Tampa Bay Lightning’s winning streak ended after a shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, but their point streak still continues. Tonight the Lightning will look to rebound in a game against the Buffalo Sabres. A good sign for the Bolts is that after missing two previous games, Victor Hedman might be ready to return to the lineup. Yesterday he appeared on morning practice alongside with Erik Cernak. That doesn’t, however, mean that the Lightning will be in an optimal lineup against the Sabres, as Nick Paul, who barely played in the second half of the game against the Hurricanes, left the yesterday’s practice early. In his absence, Vlad Namestnikov moved to his spot at second line and the team continued practicing with 11 forwards. If the Paul isn’t available tonight, the Lightning will likely run a 11/7 lineup. The return of Hedman should take off some workload from Mikhail Sergachev’s shoulders. During the absence of the Big Swede, Sergachev played more than 25 minutes per game, including over 29 minutes in the previous game against Carolina. The Russian defenseman, who signed a huge contract last summer, has already experienced an increased role on this team and it’s not only indicated by his higher ice time, but also by his stats. Sergachev currently has 10 points in 11 games, which is tied for the fourth most amongst all defensemen in the NHL. https://www.rawcharge.com/2022/11/5/23441773/buffalo-sabres-at-tampa-bay-lightning-preview-and-game-day-thread-odds-starting-lines-goaltenders
  5. Maybe it will depend on how well he does on our first run for the cup
  6. Touch call with all the other talent coming up. They seem to be trying to move Quinn into his PP spot now, Rosen has a similar style and then all the other forwards we have, so if he does leave there will be no shortage of players fighting for his spot.
  7. And they are young. So they will only get stronger as they grow into men.
  8. Yes! I enjoyed the Prospects tournament so much I was afraid we would have a let down watching the real team. But no worries!
  9. No. Hard not to think they will be MUCH better. Quinn, Power, Krebs and others are really not even adults yet. The best is yet to come
  10. Early relaxation, or "Buzz Kill" either germ would work, lol
  11. I guess it's too early to say that VO projects to 80 goals this season, huh? Tage 70? Tuch 70?
  12. Those unis were hard to get used to at first. But by end of first I was not even noticing.
