Devils @ Sabres Preview

Rematch of Saturday night’s game and even though Gerbe is out, at least Kaleta will be bringing his energy back for the Sabres. I would expect that Miller is going to play after the long lay off and should be ready to go.  This is a big game in the standings for the Sabres and they need to stay in the thick of the race and you have to beat the teams you competing against. The Sabres (15-12-3) are two points behind the Devils (16-9-3) and have played two more games.  The biggest part of Saturday’s win was that Lalime was in net and improved on his 1-4-1 for the season.  The Devils are still a hot team and with Rivet out for the game I need to see both Sekera start putting together some games.  He’s really struggled at times this year and they’re going to need production out of him going forward.

Hopefully the Sabres can put together a solid 60 minutes tonight.  They played a great first 37 minutes on Friday and ended the game well on Saturday.  I’ll obviously take another effort like Saturday if it results in a win, but I’d like to see them play well after several days off and New Jersey having just played an OT game last night.

 There’s a good article on Chris Butler and if there are more injuries on the blue line it’ll be interesting to see what Lindy does.
