Caggiula getting comfortable
Drake Caggiula has now played 6 games with the Sabres since being claimed on waivers and appears to be getting closer to producing on the score-sheet.
Caggiula was moved up to the 2nd line with Dylan Cozens and Anders Bjork last game and was noticeable producing offensive chances. Caggiula will remain on that line today in search of his first point as a Sabre.
WIll Borgen finding his way
- Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen gets the start in net after a loss on Thursday.
- Sam Reinhart has 6 goals in his last 4 games.
- Henri Jokiharju has 2 points in 3 games against the Bruins.
Expecting the Sabres to bounce back in this one after Thursday got away from them. This one has a higher-scoring, overtime feel to it.
