FOUR IN A ROW?
MORNING SKATE PODCASTSM
Lindy Ruff Interview
Paul Gaustad Interview
Luke Adam Interview
With a four game road trip coming to an end, Buffalo is in Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning at 7:00 pm. Since dropping their home opener to Carolina, Buffalo has gone on the road and captured all six possible points. Victories over Pittsburgh, Montreal and Florida are no small feat, but Buffalo will have to play their best tonight if they want to leave Florida with a win.

Forwards Paul Gaustad and Drew Stafford did skate this morning for Buffalo and head coach Lindy Ruff did say that yesterday’s absence was simply a maintenance day for the two. Jochen Hecht participated heavily but still remains day-to-day.

Look for the lines to remain the same tonight and Miller to start in goal. Ruff stated that while he initially wanted backup netminder Jhonas Enroth to start this game, Miller would get the nod. Miller has given up just one goal in the past two games including his 23rd career shutout Thursday night against the Panthers.
