Buffalo Sabres (22-28-6) vs.
Colorado Avalanche (29-25-4)
1. How will Girgensons look in his first game back?
Zemgus is back from injury, and will be centering the third line with Johan Larsson still on the shelf.
2. Will Robin Lehner regain his form today?
After a strong return to the ice, Lehner's last two games have been bad. Can he get back to "future #1" status tonight, or will we see another disappointment?
3. Will the defense be shuffled again or stay the same?
Mark Pysyk was a healthy scratch last game, but is a much better player than Carlo Colaiacovo. Will Dan Bylsma get him back in the lineup or will e stick with a winning formula?
Projected BUF lines
