Sabres at Leafs: Gettin' Serious

Puck Drop: 7PM ET LeafsTV (CDN) NHL Network (US)

Before we get into tonight's preview I'd like to point out that throwing a banana at a player is ridiculous. If you know who threw the banana or have any information get in touch with London's AM980 at 519-931-6098 or e-mail news@am980.ca 

It wouldn't be incredibly rude if you threw a bag of lollipops or Duplos at Tyler Ennis though, because it's always been in good taste to heckle opponents for looking like a child.

Tonight's lineup via @reporterchris:

Lupul - Connolly - Kessel
Kulemin - Grabovski - MacArthur
Kadri - Bozak - Frattin
Orr - Boyce - Rosehill - Crabb

Phaneuf - Aulie
Schenn - Liles
Gunnarsson - Franson
Komisarek - Gardiner

Reimer
Scrivens

So the big boys are coming out. Expect two people to be scratched before the game but really we're looking at our opening night lineup minus Colby Armstrong. The defense seems to be the top eight we'd expect. I think Gardiner is a longshot but it's a good sign he's still here.

The Sabres meanwhile have some talent in their lineup with Roy, Ehrhoff,  Boyes, Vanek, Pominville, Gerbe and Ennis all in tonight along with Ryan Miller in goal. Should be a good game assuming Ryan Miller isn't injured by you guys throwing golden pucks at him.
