Well, it’s confirmed. Unfortunately Thomas Vanek is out for the game tonight. Although Vanek has been held off the score sheet in recent games, Vanek could possibly be playing the best he has ever had in his career.
Since getting the A on his jersey Vanek has been playing some of the most inspired hockey he has ever had. Vanek is building a case for being the next captain of the Buffalo Sabres, something I can get behind.
The Sabres could make another leap in the standings tonight if they win and hopefully they will. They are playing a Penguins team with a very depleted lineup.
