Buffalo Sabres fans: are you not entertained?
Last night’s game against the Ottawa Senators was the most fun I think I have ever had watching the Sabres lose, so much so that I had no problem overlooking the fact that the Sabres played a bit sloppy and failed to score on the power play yet again. The game was a back-and-forth affair all night long, and watching Ryan Miller and Craig Anderson make save after thrilling save was worth the price of admission.
Now, the question is, can these young Sabres continue to play like that on the road in Pittsburgh tonight? And will they finally get their first win of the season?
As exhilarating as last night’s game was, the way the Penguins play hockey, tonight’s game could be just as up-tempo, the only difference being that the red light is almost certainly going to flash a bit more frequently than it did last night. Whoever is in goal for the Sabres tonight, be it Miller or Jhonas Enroth, will be extremely lucky to leave the Consol Energy Center having allowed only one goal, so the Sabres’ offense cannot rely on its goalie to duplicate last night’s performance. The good news? Marc-Andre Fleury is no Craig Anderson, so if they play as aggressively as they did last night, they should be rewarded for their effort.
Three questions to consider:
1. Who gets the start in goal for the Sabres tonight?
2. Which Sabres player will score his first goal of the season tonight?
3. Who wins tonight, and what will the final score be?
