The resurgent Buffalo Sabres will try for their 5th straight game with a point against the NJ Devils tonight with Linus Ullmark in goal. This will be the 7th game with these 2 teams and it will be interesting if anyone who is presently healthy on the Sabres squad is a healthy scratch with the trade deadline looming in less than a week away. The Devils won the previous meeting between the 2 teams 3-2. The collapse of the Sabres season started with a previous game with the Devils playing with a rumored Covid position player spreading it to several players on both teams. The league still hasn't acknowledged that this occurred. Taylor Hall has 5 points this season in 6 games against his former team but has Arttu Ruotsalainen joined the team to take his place with a soon to be completed trade this week?? Will GMKA try and receive some prospects or players in the trades or will he settle for low round draft picks?? The team has for some reason been playing with some passion these past few games, is it all RK's fault, is Granato the prospect whisperer, is it just a coincidence that Dahlin, Jokerman, Bryson, Mitts, the Giraffe, Okposo, Skinner are all playing better since RK's firing?? Will Reinhart get traded, will he stay at Center, will he move back to Wing, Everybody Knows (or seems to).

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • Buffalo has a 38.9 power-play percentage against the Devils, its best against any opponent this season.
  • The Sabres have scored at least one power-play goal in five of their six games against the Devils this season.
  • Is there a possibility they can score 1 tonight??
  • Their seven power-play goals against New Jersey are the most against any opponent this season.
  • Sam Reinhart’s ten road goals this season are tied for the most in the NHL. 
  • Kyle Okposo has seven points (2+5) in his last seven games.
  • Rasmus Dahlin has 10 points in his career against NJ, the most against any opponent
  • Kyle Okposo has 7 points in his last 7 games, he outraced a defender, is he back, can they trade him while the iron is hot

LETS GO BUFFALO

Looks like some deadline dealing with #4 Hall? Man, what a disappointment he's been. A pure puck turnover machine!

Quite a roller coaster ride in such a short season.  High hopes to nothing in a couple short months.

...combined with hands of stone, as measured over the length of the entire season so far.

This is great news; I expect him gone within 24 hours.

Well, we sure got the bigger Thompson! 

Bold Predictions:

  1. We got the right Thompson.
  2. Inspired by and wanting show up his brother, Tage scores his first NHL hat trick tonight.
