Gameday Preview Bits - 4.5.2013

It's another Northeast Division matchup tonight which means you need to get caught up on the storylines of the day ahead of puck drop between the Sens and Sabres tonight.

Let's begin

Up top we have the Gameday Goodie with newcomer Cory Conacher. He talks to Gord Wilson about playing his collegiate hockey at nearby Canisius College, joining the Sens and his excitement level prior to joining his new team.

Next up we have Gord Wilson's Game Preview ahead of this rivalry game. This game is crucial for the Sens as they look to halt a two game losing streak and lock down a playoff spot with roughly a dozen games left on the schedule.

Mathematicians are saying 52 points is the magic number to clinch which puts the Sens eight points out with 16 games to go. A little cushion never hurt either.

Coach MacLean gave his usual pregame availability this afternoon. He updated us on the lineup, Craig Anderson and his expectations for Conacher.

Daniel Alfredsson also spoke with the media today. He gave his take on the Sabres, a team he has played very well against in his career.
