Lalime in for Islanders

No surprise here: Patrick Lalime will be in goal for the Sabres tonight when the Islanders visit HSBC Arena. The backup was expected to get a game per week during this three-week run of three games in four nights. It's tonight against the team he beat, 7-1, for his first Buffalo victory in the second game of the season.

It also appears the Sabres will go with the same lineup that dressed for Friday's 3-0 loss to Philadelphia. Henrik Tallinder and Maxim Afinogenov are likely to be scratched for the second straight night. They are still skating hard laps while the rest of the team is done. It was an optional morning skate.


*Yahoo Sports takes a look at some of the most, um, interesting commercials done by hockey players through the year. Have no idea how Brian Campbell's clammy hands ad didn't make the cut.

*Here's a story on a goalie in a German league who is inspiring people by playing while undergoing chemo for a brain tumor.
