Besides sitting here watching what is turning out to be a fairly entertaining Winter Classic, there is another hockey game on tonight. The Sabres head to the Air Canada Center tonight to start the New Year off correctly against the Maple Leafs.
The Sabres have had their fair share of looking relatively inspiring in 2008, starting the year losing their first seven games of the year and missing the playoffs. They start the second half of the year looking very uninspiring and stuck in 9th place in the conference. This team needs to find a spark and find it quick to be able to make the playoffs. The month of January could help this team, but they have to be able to play well and consistently which is something that the Sabres haven’t shown they can do.
Game time is 7pm.
