What to Watch
1. Lehner is back.
After missing Monday’s game with a hip injury. Robin Lehner will return to the crease tonight for the Sabres.
2. Evander Kane’s last game?
Every day we get closer to Monday’s trade deadline every game becomes the possibility it’ll Kane’s last in a Sabres sweater. After tonight they play in D.C. on Saturday and back home against Boston on Sunday.
