Penguins vs Sabres Open Thread

Pittsburgh Penguins (32-21-5) vs Buffalo Sabres (28-22-8)
In Buffalo at 6pm
Watch on FSN/Center Ice or listen live at

Sid skated in a full contact practice yesterday for the first time since the crash into the boards.  Since the injury his projected return was set for March 15.  I'm no doctor, but considering his degree of recovery I'd say fans can expect him back sooner rather than later.

Gary Roberts has also been taking to the ice on a regular basis now since the broken leg.

Marc-Andre Fleury may only have another game or two awaiting him in WBS before returning to Pitt full-time.  His rehab record is 1-1

In the Carolina game, Jeff Taffe suffered a broken nose and in turn may be absent in the lineup tonight.  Kris Beech, the ghost on the ice since his recent re-acquisition, also broke his wrist in the 4-2 loss to the Canes.

Erik Christensen will also be a scratch tonight as he continues to recover from the minor shoulder injury sustained in the 2-1 loss against the Bruins.

It's amazing what a week can do to a team.

Buffalo fell to the Rangers 5-1 last night.
Miller was pulled in the first after giving up 4 goals on 11 shots.
The first goal came 10 seconds into the first.
Can the Pens expect to see Thibault in net?
The Penguins lead the season series 2-0.
Up until yesterday's loss the Sabres were on a hot 8-0-2 run.
