Sabres - Canadiens: Fan Chatter!

Sabres fans, it’s game day!

<cue sound of crickets>

Yes, yes – I know.  It’s hard to get excited about a Sabres’ game right now.  The question is, though, what else are you going to do tonight?  Watch the NBA?  Organize your underwear drawer?  Clean the house before guests arrive on Thanksgiving?

Hogwash!  Suit up, sit down, strap in, and shut up!  The Sabres are on tonight!

There actually is a good reason to tune in and watch tonight’s game, and that would be the potential Olympic goalie preview we could be treated to if Ryan Miller and Carey Price start for their teams (as of the time I published this, Miller had been named the starter).  Most hockey writers have Miller and Price making Team USA and Team Canada, respectively, so if Price gets the start tonight, we’re in for a close game with plenty of highlight reel-worthy saves.  That alone is worth the three hours of my life this game will command tonight!

Now let’s get down to brass tacks!

Questions to consider:

1. Will either goalie notch a shut-out tonight?

2. Ville Leino and Drew Stafford have been working hard lately – can either one of them score tonight?

3. Final score?

Come at me, bros!
