if ever there were two games that have to and must win these are them. Lose here and I give up...mind you we seem to find a way to lose games just as other teams find ways to win games. This should be real interesting

Really hope they aren't smart enough to play Anderson either, nor both, nights.  Like Elliott, he's a middling goalie on the back side of his career who has had unreasonable success against the Sabres.

If Okposo is back tonight, GA might get his wish and see a non-defensive specialist on Skinner's opposite wing.  (Of course, it's just as likely that either Cozens or Thompson is the 13th F and Skinner gets his normal linemates.  Would call it a coin flip right now whether it's 1 of them or Lazar/ Sheahan that sits.  Let's guess it's Lazar as the odd man out just for kicks.)

I'd like our chances slot better with a true number one goalie. We shouldn't have to be hoping we win. With the caps having so many out tonight we should beat them handily but our goaltending is a crap shoot so here we are hoping.

This feels like either a shutout or a rout for Ulmark, given his personal life 

The boys are going to be skating hard for him. Coupled with the shutout last game I'm predicting a bounce back game. Eichel with his first goal, Dahlin with his first point and Ullmark with the Miller SO

Somebody's getting off the schneid today. I'm going with Eichel.

In fact, I think it will be a big day for the first line.

Could you add Skinner to your list? It would wonders for not only him but the team? 🙂

Well, w/ Ovechkin & Kuznetzov both out, whichever line they're matched against will be the weakest they've faced "all" year.  So, that's hopefully a pretty safe prediction.

I think this is a game where Buffalo needs to stay focused and not get distracted by Caps shenanigans.  Caps will probably try to turn this into an uneventful slog and might ratchet up the physicality.  Buffalo needs to focus on executing.
