A note to Sabres fans: please don’t boo Alexander Ovechkin tonight. He doesn’t need the extra motivation to score, and unlike Miroslav Satan he actually can.
Should be an interesting night down at the Arena, with Goose and Gerbe back in action. Maybe this means there will be some semblance of a forecheck, which will be a nice belated Christmas gift. Miller looks to get the start, and tonight looks like the perfect time to start the climb out of the bottom half of the conference. With Toronto coming up on New Year’s Day and just five points between the two, it would be nice to get a little more breathing room before they go and think the playoffs are realistic.
7:00 pm from the Arena. I’ll be there hoping Hank can redeem himself, and Atlas can get back to business.
