Couretesy of NHL.com heres Turnbulls First Goal

Sabres now keep pace in the East after a temp move into 8th place they needed the Jets to win in regulation for the Sabres to have a solid grip on 8th before heading home to the F'N Centre to host the Minnesota Wild.

Jets were losing 3-0 and things were looking very bleak for the Sabres but the Jets came all the way back to take the Capitals to OT and give Washington the loser point and puts Caps (who hold the tie breaker against the Sabres via more regulation wins)

BUT something else happened in the NHL in the Ottawa Senators vs Montreal Canadiens.

The Habitants destroyed the Senators 5-1 who are now on a free fall out of the playoffs and now the Sabres are 2 pts back of the 7th seed and the Senators play the Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow night.

Minnesota Wild vs Buffalo Sabres

Buffalo (36-29-10) is 12-2-4 since Feb. 17, improving from 14th place in the Eastern Conference to currently being tied with Washington for eighth. The Sabres, who also trail seventh-place Ottawa by two points, were 10 points out of a spot before this hot streak.

Last Meeting: March 6th 2011 - Buffalo won 3-2 @ the Xcel Energy Center

What historical significance does this have you say?

well that win last year on March 6th pushed Buffalo into the eighth seed, your 3 stars from that game?

1) Drew Stafford - 1 G 1A 2pts +1

2) Marek Zidlicky - 1G 0A 1pts 0 (no longer plays for the Wild)

3) Thomas Vanek - 0G 1A 1pts +1

The other 2 goal scorers were Jason Pominville(17) and 1 year verteran wonder Rob Niedermayer (1)

Warren Peters also scored for Wild..

Sabres won this game in OT with Stafford scoring 46 seconds into it

Johans Enroth (W)

Jose Theodore (L)

Flash to Present

The Sabres are 6-0-1 in their last seven at home, although the Wild have taken their last four visits to the First Niagara Center.

Buffalo's opponents are 2 for 31 on the power play in the last 12 games. The Sabres do not figure to get much of a challenge from a Minnesota unit among the league's worst at 15.1 percent.

The Wild (31-32-10) have not won a road game in regulation since Feb. 2 and enter this two-game trip aware of how well their opponents are playing.

The Wild got healthier Thursday when captain Mikko Koivu returned from a shoulder injury after missing 15 games to center the top line with Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi. Minnesota, which is close to elimination, is seeking to win three straight for the first time since a season-high seven-game run Nov. 28-Dec. 10, 2011.

Lets ride high on the win at MSG and carry forward and beat the Wild who have no much to play for except for playing the role of spoiler for teams playoff chances.

The Winnipeg Jets are also on the dock Saturday at home to the Nashville Predators, Nashville MUST overcome the roar of the MTS Centre if they have any hope of winning and keeping the Jets back of the 8th seed and the MTS Centre will be LOUD considering the huge 3-0 comeback victory tonight against the Capitals

so Go Penguins, Go Preadators, and most of all LETS GO BUFFALO!
