Open Thread: Sabres at Senators

New, comments

An open thread to discuss the goings-on as the Sens take on the Sabres.

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Though an injury to Colin Greening and a team suspension to Mikael Wikstrand have dominated recent headlines, there are still pre-season games to be played. Here is tonight's:

Buffalo Sabres at Ottawa Senators, 7 p.m., TV: TSN5

Roster:

Some thoughts:

  • After a pretty notable last game, Ryan Dzingel is not playing
  • I'm curious to see who Erik Karlsson plays with. Thomas Chabot looked pretty good on his pairing, but isn't playing this time. I wouldn't be surprised to see Fredrik Claesson get a good shot there.
  • Ah, the mystery man Eric O'Dell gets his shot. I'm curious to see if either he or Zack Smith stands out this game. O'Dell is on a two-way contract, but he could unseat Smith for that fourth-line centre role
  • Matt O'Connor has looked sharp so far. Can he keep it up?
