NHL Daily Dasherboard January 20th, 2014


HAPPY MONDAY! Some of you may actually agree with me this morning, as you may have slept in or are leisurely drinking your morning coffee at home due to the fact it is Martin Luther King Day, and you have the day off.  Which makes this morning’s edition of the NHL Daily Dasherboard even greater!

Us fans aren’t the only ones with the day off; the Buffalo Sabres were not lucky enough to have a game scheduled on this glorious Monday, but I am assuming they will have practice – they need it nevertheless. The Sabres next two games will be at home, starting tomorrow against the Florida Panthers, and Thursday against the Carolina Hurricanes.
