GDP #34: Turris Debut v Sabres
The Sens are back at it tonight after a rare weekend off, as they take on the hated Buffalo Sabres at SBP tonight. Of course the big news of the evening is the debut of newly acquired Kyle Turris. Everyone will be watching to see how he reacts and to make snap judgements after 60 mins of course too. He is scheduled to centre the 2nd line with Foligno at the moment and may see powerplay time as well.
For the Sens Craig Anderson is expected to start and Kuba and Gonchar may be playing as well. Another story line is Marcus Foligno, brother of Nick, will make his NHL debut tonight for the Sabres playing against his brother.
Local Flavor: The much hated Derek Roy is a Rockland native.
Prediction: Sens and Sabers is always a fun game no matter what and both teams are 4-4-2 in their last 10 and only one point separating them in the standings, so it's an even matchup. I say Sens take it 3-2 and Turris gets a point in his debut, while Marcus Folingo does not.
