Buffalo @ Ottawa

Injury Report:

Ottawa

Cody Bass (C/RW): Ankle injury, day-to-day

Patrick Eaves (RW/LW): Shoulder injury, day-to-day

Buffalo

Maxim Afinogenov (RW): Groin, sidelined indefinitely - IR

Ales Kotalik (RW/LW): Flu, day-to-day

Teppo Numminen (D): Heart surgery, sidelined indefinitely - IR

Drew Stafford (RW): Right ankle injury, sidelined indefinitely

Trend Analysis

Ottawa got a much needed boost with the return of Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredson last week. Their last two wins put them at .500 in the last 16 game. Now that the Team is healthy you can expect that they will try to put some space between them and the Teams that trail them. In 4 games this season Ottawa is 2-1-1 versus Buffalo.

Buffalo on the other hand is playing very well despite their injuries. They are 7-3-5 in their last 15 games and 6-2-2 in their last 10 games and seem to be coming on strong for the stretch drive to the playoffs. Beating Boston twice last week they are 1 pt out of the last and final 8th playoff spot and only 7 pts out of 2nd place in the Division. Ottawa can expect a tough game from this team as it continues to climb up the standings.

I want my next post to be at the top of a page, So I'm posting this one just to say:

GO HABS GO!!!

I think you are going to have to wait for the next page CH. :lol:

Canadiens recall O'Byrne from Hamilton

Ryan O'Byrne's conditioning stint with the Hamilton Bulldogs has ended sooner than expected.

The Canadiens recalled O'Byrne yesterday after only two games in Hamilton. He reported to the team last night.

The original plan was to keep O'Byrne, who broke his thumb in Florida on Dec. 28, in Hamilton until at least the end of the week. But coach Guy Carbonneau has not been happy with the team's defensive play in recent games and he'll be counting on O'Byrne to add a physical presence and some youthful enthusiasm to the defence corps.

While Carbonneau won't make any decisions until after the team practises this afternoon, O'Byrne will probably be reunited with Roman Hamrlik, who has missed the past three games with a virus. Patrice Brisebois, who played fewer than 10 minutes Saturday against Ottawa, probably will be a healthy scratch, while Mark Streit returns to a forward spot.

Penguins send down Fleury: The Pittsburgh Penguins assigned injured goaltender Marc-André Fleury to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League yesterday.

Fleury has been sidelined 28 games with an ankle injury suffered on Dec. 6. The Penguins elected to send him to the AHL for conditioning.

Fleury, 23, has appeared in 21 games with the Penguins this season and owns a 9-8-1 record, including two shutouts. During his absence, Ty Conklin has thrived in net for the Penguins, going 14-3-3 with a 2.22 GAA.

Police hound Emery: Senators goalie Ray Emery was involved in a verbal confrontation with a police officer after he was pulled over while driving his Hummer.

The vehicle had been in a garage for four months, and Emery had been driving it for only a few minutes when he was pulled over by police on Friday. He has suggested that he was being unfairly targeted by police.

Coach John Paddock came to the defence of the goalie, who was also driving the Hummer when he was involved in a minor accident during the 2007 playoffs and again in September, when another man accused the Senators player of road rage after an exchange of words.

Asked whether he was concerned about Friday's incident, Paddock said, "No. I don't understand them bothering him when he's not doing anything."

Buffalo @ Ottawa

Who is Hot

Ottawa

Jason Spezza Last 2 gp 3 goals 6 assists

Dany Heatley Last 2 gp 3 goals 4 assists

Joe Corvo Last 3 gp 1 goal 3 assists

Anton Volchenkov Last 2 gp 2 assists

Wade Redden Last 2 gp 2 assists

Ray Emery Last 2 gp 2.50 GAA .925 Sv Pct

Buffalo

Jason Pominville Last 7 gp 4 goals 7 assists

Thomas Vanek Last 2 gp 2 goals 1 assist

Derek Roy Last 2 gp 2 goals 1 assist

Brian Campbell Last 2 gp 4 assists

Jaroslav Spacek Last 2 gp 1 goal 1 assist

Ryan Miller Last 8 gp 1.79 GAA .937 Sv Pct

Goalies may be the Key

Of the two teams Buffalo's Ryan Miller seems to have found his form from last year. Between the pipes he has been solid over the last 8 games. One major reason why Buffalo is 6-2-2 in their last 10 games. Ottawa continues to shuffle their goalies. Though Ray Emery has played well his last two games the goalie distractions for the team continued as Ray Emery on Friday night had a minor altercation with police when he was pulled over in his Hummer.

Do you really want to separate the scouting reports from the Prediction Thread?

I kind of like the two together also, as that is the main purpose of scouting but i'm OK with either way.

Absolutely. Not only will this make life easier for CH, but it will also make life easier for slow pokes like me to be able to follow the mounds of information from the scouting reports.

I'll change it back if majority of users want to merge them, but since our objective here is to organize and categories (yet still keep everything in one small group...i.e. a sub-forum) it was the natural decision.

We'll see how everything works out. There will undoubtedly be an adjustment and trial period.

Plus by keeping the Scouting reports separate, we can see who is slacking off and not posting reports on time :D This way the Admiral can do what he does best to keep his see-men and women in shape :D

I know this isn't necessary, but I'm giving you a zednik update since many people loved him while he was with the canadiens, and he is my favorite player.

Update: Zednik Resting After Surgery

Florida Panthers Feb 10, 2008, 10:56 PM EST

By Dave Joseph for floridapanthers.com

Panther forward Richard Zednik was in stable condition and resting comfortably after undergoing surgery Sunday evening at Buffalo General Hospital to close a laceration in his neck suffered during the Panthers 5-3 loss to the Sabres.

Zednik was skating into the right corner of the Sabres’ zone midway through the third period when Olli Jokinen was upended by Sabres defenseman Brian Campbell. As Jokinen was falling head-first to the ice, his right skate flew up and caught Zednik in the neck.

Despite the gruesome gash to his neck, Zednik immediately skated to the Panther bench, leaving a trail of blood. A towel was applied to his neck and he was escorted to the Panther dressing room. He was taken by ambulance to Buffalo General. Zednik was accompanied by Panther assistant trainer Dave Zenobi and was joined at the hospital by assistant general manager Randy Sexton. The Panthers made arrangements to have Zednik’s wife, Jessica, flown to Buffalo.

GM and coach Jacques Martin said immediately after the game Zednik was in stable condition and doctors had managed to stop the bleeding. After the game was delayed for 15 minutes to allow crews to scrape the blood off the HSBC Arena ice, the crowd was informed that Zednik was in stable condition and Sabres’ fans gave the Panther forward a standing ovation.

Speaking to Steve Goldstein and Denis Potvin on FSN Florida after the game, Martin said there was some consideration given to calling the game. Martin spoke with referee Bill McCreary and Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff during the 15 minute delay. But with knowledge that Zednik was stable and under medical care, the decision was made to continue the game.

Still, it was difficult to move forward. Ruff said his talk with Martin and game referees was “solemn.”

“From that point on, it wasn’t about the game anymore,” Ruff told the media after the game.

Martin called the incident a “scary moment.”

“It’s something you never wish to see,” Martin said. “Hopefully, he’ll be all right. The fact he came over (to) the bench, didn’t waste any time, probably allowed our trainer to give him attention. I thought the medical team in Buffalo was quick to react. As soon as he got to the dressing room, I think they were able to stabilize him and stop the bleeding, which was crucial.

“We’ll leave some staff behind and, hopefully, everything is all right.”

Zednik, 32, has been the Panthers hottest player, scoring six goals in the last four games. Signed over the summer as an unrestricted free agent, he has 15 goals and 11 assists.

In March 1989, Sabres’ goalie and former Panther goaltending coach Clint Malarchuk had his neck cut by the skate of Steve Tuttle of the St. Louis Blues. The incident also occurred in Buffalo.

That was a pretty gruesome sight. Glad to know Zeddy got through it. I remember the Malarchuk incident all too well also. I'm shocked it doesnt happen more often but thank god it doesnt.

Agreed with HTL. We forget too quickly that guys are out there flying with razor sharp blades on the soles of their feet. Thank goodness Zednik is alive and well. From what I understand it was very close to having an adverse end to the story.

Thanks for this, hiphiphuet. I know we all know about it, but it's worth repeating. Shocking stuff and we can only hope he recovers fully and gets back on form quickly (even though now a panther - a player is a player wherever he plays).

I also remember the Malarchuk moment. That still sends a chill down my spine - and wonder to this day that he survived.

Admiral...kindly continue your awesome work in here :D

So CH we are separated... hmmm (is this your doing?)

:( *sobs*

Not me, Guvnor. I thought the two went hand in hand.

But HLD is right: it will make spotting people's predictions that much easier.

Question is: in which of the various sub-threads does the silliness continue? Or is it now in all of them? Muuhahahahaha!!

In all of them of course. It wouldn't be the MN sub-forum otherwise :D

But we'll try and keep it predominantly in the MN Update Thread.

Could be futile with this bunch (myself excluded of course - Mu-hua-hua!!!)

The Latest from Philadelphia - Forward Simon Gagne left the game Saturday after suffering another concussion. Gagne had missed the past 30 games with a concussion sustained in late October. - Philadelphia Inquirer

The Latest from Pittsburgh - Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL for a conditioning stint. - Post Gazette
