The Previews: My preview from earlier today is right here. For the opposition's perspective, Zachery Zielonka has this preview at Die by the Blade.
Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported earlier this afternoon that Mark Fraser and Jay Leach will play in place of Colin White and Anton Volchenkov, barring any further developments. Buffalo, on the other hand, will be getting some injured players back. Mike Harrington reported at the Sabres Edge blog that Jochen Hecht and Steve Montador will play tonight. Hecht is expected play in place of Mark Mancari, and Montador may be filling in for another defenseman who is injured. Harrington thinks it might be Jordan Leopold. We shall see. The starting goaltenders based on these two reports will be Martin Brodeur and Ryan Miller.
A Song for Tonight: Who else but the funkiest man to ever come out of Buffalo, NY? This is ""Ghetto Life" by Rick James from his classic 1981 album Street Songs. Good luck getting the guitar lick out of your head.
