Well first off I just won some tickets on EBAY for this game, these games you can get em low. Mine went for 56 for 2. So me and the Fiancee are heading for the HSBC arena for some hockey action. I'm pretty excited for this one, I love seeing the odd teams, like the Blues. I saw Columbus last year and it was a terrible game, but its different. Northeast teams are boring. Western Conference teams are exciting.
Well here are the probable lines tonight, thanks to John Vogl
Thomas Vanek-Derek Roy-Ales Kotalik
Jochen Hecht-Tim Connolly-Jason Pominville
Daniel Paille-Clarke MacArthur-Maxim Afinogenov
Andrew Peters-Paul Gaustad-Adam Mair
No Kaleta or Stafford, which is fine, Peters wasn't horrible the first few games. Actually looked like a hockey player, and Kaleta is progressing as well. Stafford is just, ugh. He needs a wake up call.
For the Blues, Kariya is iffy with a foot, but the guys to look out for on the Blues are...
Andy McDonald with 16 points
Paul Kariya with 15 points
Brad Boyes with 14 Points and 8 goals
Keith Tkachuk with 11 points 9 goals
The Blues are bad in goal and bad at defense. They give up more then they score which makes sense, since they are last in the Central division. And haven't won in 3 weeks. Oh no.
Well hopefully they don't find their game tonight, because the Sabres have looked bad in the last two, especially on defense. I would look the team to be back in position, or fear their job. Because Lindy can bench guys now for lazy play. I like that option for Lindy. Also, probably Lalime tonight, which is good because my Fiancee things Miller is crap. Though I will miss her bagging on him if he let in a crappy goal.
See you at the Arena.
