Record: Lightning (2-3-2) Sabres (5-1-0)

Previous games: None yet

Game time: 7:00pm EST on SUN (HD)


That should be enough for the preview for tonight's game, no? So there will be Tesla coils for at least the pre-game tonight.

So as the stats show, the Sabres have been good so far. They beat up Pacific division teams in Europe and have been trucking along with Miller standing on top of his head the other night. Tonight is the first in a home and home that we'll play against Buffalo. The Lightning had a good game the other night against the Islanders and need to bring that focus tonight. They've only won one game in a string of really crappy play.

Look out for Connolly tonight as it is game #8 for him, the clock is ticking on whether he stays for the season.

@TBLightning tweeted out a photo of Roloson's new 3rd jersey mask. Strange that they would do it before a game that Garon is starting, but my initial though on it was that it is simple. The bolt on the top looks huge and a bit weird, but maybe I need to see this during an actual game to decide. Thoughts on it?
