Game of the Night

There are thirteen games on the schedule for tonight, none more anticipated than Atlanta's trip to Buffalo. As you know, the Sabres are going for their 11th straight win tonight which would set the NHL record set by Toronto in 1993.

The Thrashers are coming off a shootout loss against Philadelphia where Kari Lehtonen finally got the night off - well at least for the first 65 minutes. Given that Hedberg was 4-0 in shootouts last year and Lehtonen missed a great deal of time with groin injuries it was shocking to see Lehtonen come off the bench for the shootout. Still the Thrashers picked up a point and are only 3 points behind Buffalo in the East.

Tonight's matchup has the two leading goal scorers in the league (Hossa and Drury - 10 each), the two leading scorers (Hossa and Afinogenov - 16 each) and quite possibly the two best young goalies in Miller and Lehtonen.

This should be a great one to watch and although the streak has to end sometime, I just don't think it will be tonight - I'm going with Buffalo.
