Game 27: Sabres @ Penguins

Game 27 Buffalo Sabres @ Pittsburgh Penguins (7:38 Versus/WXDX).

Tonight the Penguins battle the Sabres in the 3rd meeting this season. Each team has a win so far. The Penguins winning the first meeting 5-2 and the Sabres winning the second 4-3. The Sabres beat the Circus that is the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night 4-3 breaking a 3 game losing streak. When your team is struggling their is nothing better than playing the Lightning to get things turned around.

The Sabres called up Top prospect Nathan Gerbe from AHL affiliate Portland for Saturdays game. I guess this kid was a beast in college hockey.

Head Coach Lindy Ruff isn't to happy with Allstar Goalie Ryan Miller. He was pissed about a 2-1 loss to the Panthers. If your goalie is only giving up 2 goals, isn't he giving you a chance to win every night? What do i know, i'm not a coach.


The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off a loss to Jason Spezza on Saturday night. What a joke of a game that was. The end of a road trip, 3 games in 4 nights. That's about all the further i would look into that loss.

The Penguins have called up Defensman Ben Lovejoy From WBS because Hal Gill might not be able to go tonight. I think Hal Gill needs a game or 2 off anyways. It Seems like every time Gill and Scuderi are on the ice the Pens get bottled up in their own zone for an extended period of time.

Goaltender Marc Andre Fleury practiced with the team for the first time since being secretly injured. It would be nice to see him back in action, Sabourin is starting to show some signs of not being a starting goalie.

The Pensblog is issuing a call to arms to get Malkin some all-star votes. At Noon All you have to do is text Malkin to 81812.
