Last Game Against the Bottom Feeders

The Sabres have played Tampa three times already this season. Let’s review:

Oct. 27: Sabres 4. Lightning 3.
Overtime winner by Vanek.

Jan. 29: Sabres 4. Lightning 2.
Three point night for Pominville.

Feb. 20: Sabres 4. Lightning 3.
Vanek scores in overtime for his first career hat trick.

Tonight should be a good night, even if we are sitting in tenth.

Rangers are in New Jersey tonight and the Blackhawks are hosting the Capitals so if the Sabres take care of business and get some help, they’ll be one point out of a playoff spot by sunrise. But let’s play the game first…
