Game Notes

  • Sabres are 2-0 since the trade deadline and have scored 10 goals while allowing only two.
  • Buffalo was 3-for-6 on the power play last night against the Coyotes.
  • It is doubtful that Max Afinogenov will be in the lineup tonight because the effects of a hit by Ken Klee last night.
  • The Senators traded away Antoine Vermette on Wednesday. He was sent to the Blue Jackets in exchange for injured Goalie Pascal Leclaire.
