The Buffalo Sabers are coming to Bank Atlantic Center where they are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings against the Florida Panthers. It will be the first meeting between the two teams this season. The Panthers are coming off a big win against the Philadelphia Flyers and are looking to start their first winning streak of the season. At the same time, the Sabers are coming off their first loss of the season.
Left Wingers Clarke MacArthur and Matt Ellis are probable for the Sabers in tonight's game. Both are suffering from the flu. MacArthur is leading the team in points. He has been filling in nicely for injured star Thomas Vanek, who is out with an upper body injury.
Center Nick Tarnasky has begun skating and should be returning to the Panthers soon. He has been out with a broken orbital bone since the preseason.
