Sabres at Penguins Preview: It's Almost Over

Justin K. Aller

The Sabres travel to Pittsburgh to play in the penultimate game of their season.

After being postponed for three days, the Sabres are finally ready to take on the Penguins in what is now the second last game of the season. Buffalo is coming off another very Buffalo-y loss to Winnipeg last night, getting outshot and out-possessed like crazy, and relying on a sparkling goaltending performance to stay in the game.

Tonight, the game plan will likely remain the same, as the Sabres look to Ryan Miller to help them steal a game from first place Pittsburgh. After seeing their 15 game winning streak broken by the Sabres earlier this season, the Pens are now in the middle of a seven game winning streak (must be nice, huh?) and will try to avoid a letdown against the team currently in eleventh.
