All right, Buffalo Sabres fans!
The season is winding down, and with it the race to see who will win the free Fansided t-shirt I have dangled out in front of you for a few months now. I’m about halfway caught up on tallying up all the scores from previous posts, so please bear with me – it’s been a heck of a few weeks!
As for tonight’s game, we have the battle of two of the worst teams in the NHL, who both happen to be starting goaltenders who were recently playing in the AHL. Imagine if NBC Sports Network found itself in charge of broadcasting this game – this game might single-handedly be enough to get Mike Milbury to quit.
Now there’s a thought . . . .
Questions to consider:
1. The over/under for tonight is 5.5. With backup goalies in, do these two teams combine to score five or less, or six or more? 5 pts.
2. Pick three players from each team who you think will score. 10 pts. for the player who scores the first goal. 5 pts. per player who scores. 2 pts. if a player scores a second goal. 20 pts. for a hattie!
3. Which goalie has the better save percentage tonight, Nathan Lieuwin or Joni Ortio? 5 pts.
4. Who wins, and what will the comined final score be? 5 pts. and 7 pts.
Let’s do this, people!!!!!
