Penguins Game Day 57 - vs. Buffalo Sabres

Buffalo Sabres

7:00 PM, Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, PA


This will be the third time these two teams will be meeting. The teams have split the series so far with the Penguins losing the last match up on December 29 when they blew a 3-0 lead to lose to the Sabres 4-3 at the HSBC Arena.



The Penguins and Sabres met at the HSBC Center on December 19 which resulted in a 2-1 win for the Penguins in the shootout.




Here is the team comparisons:



Here is the projected line ups for the game tonight

Forwards

Dupuis-Crosby-Guerin
Johnson-Malkin-Fedotenko
Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
Rupp-Adams-Letestu

Defense

Gonchar-Orpik
Eaton-Letang
McKee-Skoula

Netminder
Fleury

Letestu looked pretty good against the Wings and MAF will be on duty for some back-to-back work after a pretty good performance against the Wings. The back-to-back will not be a huge deal since there will be a lenghthy break for the Olympics. I know you scream that MAF is in the Olympics but MAF will most likely not be playing in the games, just practice so he will get some good "down time."

Do it
