The Buffalo Sabres continue on through Florida, taking on the Florida Panthers for the fourth and final time this season, hoping to prevent a three game losing streak to the Panthers for the first time since the 05/06 season.
Jhonas Enroth has been nothing short of great in his four games since returning from Sochi, going 3-1 in those games back. He seems to be gaining more and more confidence with each and every start. Since he has been doing such a great job, Ted Nolan believes he deserves a rest, making way for Michal Neuvirth to make his first appearance as the 39th goaltender in Sabres history to play in a game.
Neuvirth will make his first appearance against the Florida Panthers returner in Roberto Luongo, who was with Florida from 2000-2005 before heading to Vancouver. Luongo was traded to Florida at the deadline and former Panther Tim Thomas went to the Stars.

Tonight is sure to be exciting as newcomer Cory Conacher is expected to be inserted into the lineup for tonights game, along with newcoming prospect Nicholas Deslauriers and Luka Adam have also made the trip to Florida on an emergency basis from the Rochester Americans. This comes as no surprise as both Chris Stewart and Zemgus Girgensons are believed to be out of the lineup due to injury, a lower body to Girgensons and a right leg injury to Stewart from last nights collision with Lightning goalie Anders Lindback.
