Weekly Notes: Sabres Ready to Wrestle with the Raiders

Game Notes

Game Teaser 

 

FIRST ONE UNDER THE BELT: Last Saturday night, the Sabres returned to the Blue Line and defeated Lawrence in convincing fashion, 6-2. This coming 24 hours after Friday night's disappointing 3-1 loss, the Sabres found the right combination and click on all cylinders. Freshman Scott Milnthorp led the charge with two goals and an assist, while Brian Berger tallied two goals. From the blue line, senior Tanner Burton notched three assists, while freshman Mike Baldwin earned his first win in between the pipes for Marian. 

TAKING THE BODY: Coming into last weekend's series with Lawrence, the Sabres knew they would be facing a physical team who uses their size and grit to create opportunities. Both teams landed their fair share of blows, but when the game shifted to the larger surface on Saturday, it'd be the Sabres who would gain the upper hand.

SCOUTING THE RAIDERS: With their 0-4 record, MSOE is off to their worst start since the 2002-2003 season. It wasn't until January 17th that the Raiders won their first game. Through the first two weekends of the year, Patrick LeBeau leads MSOE on the stat sheet with two goals. In between the pipes, Nick Kohn has gotten off to a rock start, posting a 4.11 GAA, allowing 15 goals in his four starts.
