Game Notes

  • Sabres have lost three in a row and five of their last six games.
  • Mikael Tellqvist is expected to make only his second start since being acquired by the Sabres on March 4.
  • In his last start Tellqvist made 32 saves and allowed four goals in a 4-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.
  • The Sabres have won all three meetings with the Rangers this season but have not played at MSG since a 3-1 win on October 15. (That was all the way back when the Sabres and Bills were both undefeated...those were the days).
