The Sabres are playing their second of back-to-back games tonight.
Last night they defeated the Maple Leafs 5-2.

This is the Pens first game against the Sabres this year.
Ryan Miller played yesterday, so Patrick Lalime will start for the Sabres.
No word as to whether or not he will hold out for more money if he wins tonight’s game.
