Carolina Hurricanes (27-24-5) vs. Buffalo Sabres (29-21-6)
6PM No local TV but it is on center ice
After losing the past two games to a combined score of 10-1 to sell out crowds at home, the Canes are at a low right now. This is a must win for the Canes in my opinion if they lose this one (*and the next game on Tuesday) they might as well put of the for sale sign and get ready for some trades. The canes are currently tied at 9th,5 points out of the playoffs, with Pittsburgh; while the Sabres fluctuate between 6-8th spots in the playoffs.
Leighton should probrably be in net for the canes since it's a back to back situation with Ward playing last night. EDIT: Ward in net againMiller will be in net for the Sabres.
I'm not too optimistic anymore and I kinda of want a fire sale so I'm predicting 3-1 Sabres.
Though I would like a nice Canes win here because the season isn't over and a win here brings us within 3 pts of the 8th spot, held by the Sabres as of this moment, and the Sabres don't have a game in hand.
