GDT Bruins at Sabres 4/22/21 7pm MSG/WGR550


Recommended Posts

Tonight is the second of three consecutive matchups between the two teams. 
 

Will this be the long awaited debut of UPL as the Sabres Netminder?

I feel like the casual fan is highly anticipating UPLs debut but the fans who have closely followed him through the AHL have some trepidation as this could be another 6 goal eruption akin to Ryan Miller’s debut.

At this point these games don't really matter at AHL or NHL level - and there isn't really anyone left to prevent him from playing at the NHL level for a few games the rest of the season.  

I just hope he doesn't get too in his head that this is like "his shot".  Just play your game, remember fundamentals, and he'll be fine.

I wouldn't be worried. Besides, we need to see where he is at.

If he is an NHL caliber goalie, he wouldn't be "ruined" by getting shelled. The really good ones have no memory, moreover they don't give a sh**.  If he has a confidence problem after getting shelled after his first NHL game, he's probably never going to be NHL worthy.

Is the consensus UPL, 6K, K^6, or Luuuukkonen (because he's a clone)? Yoda, I must know.

I like 6K even if @inkman thinks we're trying to "make fetch happen."  But UPL is the one that's going to stick.

The national analysts have bought into the UPL acronym.

Tokarski in net tonight 

 

Interesting that they are keeping Samuelsson in.

Is it possible they want to see if this:

  • Dahlin Joki (Ozone primarily)
  • Samuelsson Risto (Dzone primarily)
  • Bryson Borgen (the rest)

is a viable starting defence for next year?

Dahlin and Jokiharju have started taking the tougher assignments in terms of line match ups recently. 
 

Other than that go for it

So young.

But if each guy is playing to his strengths and near his ceiling, that is an intriguing mix.

It’s like Donny Meatballs is one of us. He knows who’s good and who sucks.  He puts the right players in the right spots to succeed.  My man crush is swooning.

Good to see Borgen in

 

I think KA is showcasing a lot of these young guys for potential trade currency. Or to see what vets are expendable.

I don’t agree.  I think they are playing the best players, regardless of tenure.
