    Who: Ottawa Senators @ Buffalo Sabres
    When: Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 7:30PM
    Where: Sportsnet-East, NHL C-I

    The Story:



    This is the 2nd meeting between the division rivals. The last meeting saw the Sabres win in a shootout 3-2, in Ottawa, on November 5. Derek Roy scored the winning shootout goal for the Sabres. Roy and Jordan Leopold scored in regulation for the Sabres, and Condra and Michalek for the Sens. Anderson made 31 saves compared to Enroth's 25.

    It appears as though Jhonas Enroth will make his 2nd start vs. the Sens this year, and Anderson will start for Ottawa.

    Is it confirmed? I went by the Dailyfaceoff lines which had him listed in the line-up as of Nov. 10.

    I suppose Winchester would replace him somewhere?

    Pretty safe bet since he's a regular in the lineup.

    Spezza has 13 goals and 13 assists in a 12-game point streak playing in Buffalo.

    Say all you want about our defense, but Anderson has to do better than third-worst in the list of the 30 goalies with the most games played (the only goalies sporting a worse SV% that Anderson's .886 are Halak at .882 and Mason at .866.

    Neil out, Alfredsson in. Those are the only lineup changes. Of course it's not a straight substitution, since Alfredsson will play on the second line and Neil on the third, which pushes Butler all the way down to the fourth.

    Nice GDT!

    Go Sens...an opportunity to clean up some of the giveaways and score on young Enroth - if that's who's starting.

    Ian Sendes thinks that's the case. No confirmation though.

    It's looking like Enroth will go for the Slugs.

    I would prefer lighting Enroth up like an X-Mas tree, then Miller gets brought in and we score another 12 on him too. Just for you. :crossarms:

    That would be in line with my 11 points for The Alfie prediction. I will also go with this ^
