It's just so easy to pick on the Sabres, isn't it? Jokes like these just come so easy:
It's pretty safe to assume that the Jets are going to win this one. So safe that I'm phoning it in on this game day thread because I don't think I can tell you anything about the Sabres that you don't already know and/or assume.

Players to Watch
Evander Kane had two goals last night knocking a few more off his 50 goal target. It'll be interesting to see if he can get a few more tonight against the Sabres.
On the other end of the ice, there's Chris Stewart. Sportsnet reported this today that is just a wee bit interesting:
I'm not saying it's going to happen. I'm not saying it isn't. I'm just saying it's a thought that's been put out there in the great wide world and on a night that the Jets play the team he currently plays for, he's worth watching.
