Buffalo Sabres – Los Angeles Kings: Fan Discussion

Don’t look now, Sabre Noise readers, but your Buffalo Sabres are on a hot streak!

Well . . . by hot, I mean “The Sabres won a game,” and by streak I mean, “They didn’t lose a game.”  It’s all based on your perspective, folks!

Still!   The Sabres began what could have been an absolutely brutal three-game West Coast trip with a win over the extremely talented San Jose Sharks, and are looking to build off of that hard-fought victory tonight when they face the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings appear to be continuing the “We’ll care once it’s gets close to the postseason” approach that they adopted last season.  LA ranks right round the middle of the pack when it comes to points, goals scored per game, and goals allowed per game, and have been getting shockingly-human results from goaltender Jonathan Quick.  Quick’s GAA of 2.68 is bad enough, but his save percentage of .896?  Eww.  Quick has played so “poorly” of late that Sports Illustrated now has him ranked third in their Olympic goalie rankings for Team USA – behind Jimmy Howard and Buffalo’s own Ryan Miller.

Ouch!  Wonder if that will be motivating Quick to step up his game tonight.

Questions to consider:

1.  Can Jhonas Enroth pick up his second win of the season tonight?

2. Matt Moulson needs two points tonight to match his best 10-game run (15 points from December 31, 2011 to January 19, 2012).  Will he get those two points?

3. Henrik Tallinder has scored goals in each of the past two games – can he complete the hat trick of sorts by putting on in tonight?

Come on – I want to hear your thoughts!  Let’s get the party started down there, and go Sabres!!!

    I’m going to go for broke here:

    1. Sabres win. Miller only gives up two; Quick, three.
    2. Moulson gets one point tonight, but falls short of matching his career best 10-game streak.
    3. No, Tallinder does not score again. But who cares – Sabres win!

  • Jes

    Sabres win 5-1

    1. Miller wins the battle.
    2. Yes, Moulson does that tonight.
    3. LOL no Tallinder doesn’t get one in 3 straight. I honestly think we have a better chance at playoffs before that happens.

    • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

      Ha ha – nice comment about Tallinder . . . although you probably thought that about his chances of scoring goals in back-to-back games, too!

      • Jes

        Lol yes I am guilty on that one Rich.

  • Kevin

    This would be a good game for the Sabres to tighten up in their own zone and keep the pressure off Miller and let him do his think to show off in front of his hot tody wife. Not to mention for all the other more important reasons :D. I like the stick work the Sabres used in the Sharks game and will need to continue that against the Kings. If the Sabres can limit their passing lanes and frustrate them also, we have a good chance. Hopefully we have enough offense to get it done without relying on Miller to save the day.

    • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

      Home cooking continues to work for Miller, eh? And yes, it would be nice to keep the SOG under 40 for a change.

  • Daniel

    Pretty sure Jhonas in net tonight

    • http://SabreNoise.com/ Richard Spalding

      Son of a b! That’s what I get for going to press early!!! Making the fix – thanks!

      • Jes

        I thought Miller deserved another start after beating the best offense in the league. Even though 4 goals is a lot to let in he did mighty well against a loaded Sharks team. Ahhh well it’s Enroth time (Is it me or does that just not have the same ring to it? lol).

  • Travis Hoh

    I was really hoping to see Quick v Miller – but I guess we can’t always get what we want. I think the Sabres take the lead early and slowly give way to the Kings in a typical Buffalo fashion. But they still eek out a win and Enroth gets the W.
