The Sabres look to consider their hot streak tonight against the Ottawa Senators. The Sabres have been on fire lately, and the inspired play of second string goaltender Patrick Lalime has kept them right on the cusp of the playoff race. The problem is, regardless of how good the Buffalo Sabres are, and how bad the Senators are, the Senators usually always have the Sabres number.
Tonights game will be a good test for the Sabres, to see if they can continue to roll the ball in the right direction.
News and notes from this game, Maxim Afinogenov is questionable and could be a game time decision, suffering from soreness after a hit in last nights contest. This will also be the first time Patrick Lalime has played in Ottawa since the team ran him out five years ago, blaming playoff failures on him.
