Sabres @ Thrashers – Game Preview

The Sabres continue looking for their first win since opening night as they travel to Atlanta to take on the Thrashers.  With the Sabres amidst a losing streak and desperate for a win they face a team they haven’t had much luck with in the past.

In the last 9 matchups between these teams the Sabres are 0-7-2.   For whatever reason Buffalo can never seem to get past the Thrashers and this is one game the Sabres could use a win in after starting the season 1-4-1.  That start puts them last in the East with Ottawa and New Jersey.

Ryan Miller will be in net tonight after getting a rest Saturday night in Chicago.  If the Sabres can put up the shots they did Saturday (41) and Miller has an alright night I’d be surprised if they didn’t walk away with a win. What they really need however is their core players to step up and get some goals, Myers needs to snap out of whatever slump he’s in, and everyone needs to finish their chances as there have been way to many missed chances this season.

7:00 PM faceoff.  For some reason I have a feeling this is the game they snap out of their funk and put up 5+ goals.  Guess we’ll know in a few hours.
