- 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.
