Notes:

- The Sabres' last win came against the Bruins on 1/29 when they beat the B's 2-1.

- The Sabres will induct Jim Lorentz and Joe Crozier into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame during a pre-game ceremony.

- David Krejci left Sunday's game in the first period with a leg injury but is listed as probable for tonight's game.

- I would be very surprised if we didn't see Tuukka back in net tonight after his 36 save shutout against Montreal on Sunday.

- Sabres Head Coach Lindy Ruff has been behind the Sabres bench for 13 years and is the longest tenured head coach in the NHL. That is pretty impressive in the modern world of professional sports.

- The game starts at 7:00 and can be seen on NESN. The Public Skate (open thread) starts right here a half hour before puck drop.

On the surface this seems like a great charitable idea, but think about a poor kid in Western New York that gets stick with a Darren Puppa jersey.
