Game six tonight

Tonight, it's win or stay home for the Buffalo Sabres. They played much better on Sunday than they did on Friday, and in order to win tonight, they'll have to dig even deeper. Carolina was a bit off on Sunday, and will be expected to be ready for the Sabres' best effort.

Cam Ward will be in net.

Early word on the street is that Teppo Numminen will still sit out with the injured groin.

The biggest key to the game for both teams will be discipline. The team that is in the box feeling shame the least will most likely emerge victorious. Carolina has been outstanding on the power play, and will need to keep that up. Buffalo has been a little soft, and will need to pick it up. Seriously, though, Buffalo will have to stay out of the box if it is to have any chance.

I'll be working tonight, but I'll have chances to sneak peeks at the game.

Puck drop will be at 7:30. GO CANES!!!!!!
