    GDT - Game #11: Sabres @ Sens, Nov 5, 2016, 7:00pm

    Post by tim1_2 on Fri Nov 04, 2016 12:27 pm

    I won't be around tomorrow, so I figured I'd post this a day early.

    Buffalo's been pretty bad this season, and find themselves at the bottom of the Atlantic. Injuries have been a huge factor there (Eichel, Kane, etc). I assume we'll see Lehner in their net. He'll be fired up. He has a 2.30 GAA and a .922 save %. Condon will start for Ottawa.

    The lines from practice today are as follows:

    Stone - Brassard - Ryan
    Hoffman - Turris - Pyatt
    McCormick - Pageau - Dzingel
    Puempel - Kelly - Neil

    Methot - EK
    Phaneuf - Ceci
    Claesson - BoroCop

    Condon

    In addition to Eichel and Kane, Bogosian is also out. Buffalo list one to the Leafs they should have won. They will be ornery.

    This will be yet another really tough game. I was saying how Carolina will be hard and then the rest would be easy, but now it looks like each game is being harder. Getting Stone back will be great. Getting Ryan back would be even better.

    Ryan's been making some really deft plays recently. If anyone would finish on his 3 or 4 amazing setups, we wouldn't be talking about his points or lack of etc.

    Ryan has been ok, which is not enough for the highest paid forward on the team. Dzingel has done more with (and for) less. I no longer expect or even hope for Ryan to get back to being a 30+ goal scorer but 24 goals/40 points is not enough. It's early, but last couple seasons he started out fast and fell off the planet at the end. So I'm a little worried.

    Ryan will continue to be OK for the duration of his contract. Maybe...at some point he can score 25 or maybe even 30, but that's wishful thinking.

    Yeah, OK just won't be OK.

    I think he'll find his game. That's probably not the low estimate but not likely what I would call the better projection. He's gonna be playing with brass for the next 3 years likely. This is 10 games. give it time.

    Stone and Anderson will both play. Player helmets will have a new sticker -- StickWithNic (for Nicholle).

    For some reason I thought they were in Buffalo tonight. Usually the home team is shown second and whatever site I looked at for their schedule had Buffalo listed second.

    Preview:
    http://scores.espn.com/nhl/preview?gameId=400884561

    Sens have won their last 3 game scoring a combined total of 4 goals.

    Condon was brought in on recommendation from goalie coach Pierre Groulx.

    What the help is going on? Why does Anderson leave in Thursday and they say they don't know when he'll be back, then all of a sudden he's back?
