Buffalo Sabres – Nashville Predators: Fan Picks!


Buffalo Sabres fans, we are THIS close to the end of the regular season.

Which means that we are THIS close to seeing who wins the free t-shirt I am giving out for the Sabre Noise faithful who have been routinely participating in our fan pick posts.  I know, I know – you’re all curious as to what the current standings are.  Believe me when I say that I am THIS close to having those done – seriously!

All right – so we do we have tonight?

Questions to consider:

1.  I will set the over/under tonight at 3.5.  I’m serious – these teams don’t score.   Do the two teams combine for 3 or less, or 4or more?   5 pts.

2. Pick three players from each team.   10 pts. for first goal-scorer.  5 pts. for any player who scores after the first goal.  2 pts. for a second goal scored.  20 pts. for the hattie!

3. What will the combined number of hits after the first period be?  7 pts. if you are within 5!

4. Matt Hackett gets the start tonight.  Within 5, how many saves does he make?  5 pts.

5. Who wins, and what will the combined final score be?  5 pts. for winning team, 7 for combined score.
