What to Watch

1. Mixed Roster

The Sabres will feature a mix of roster locks, bubble players, and veteran depth in game one of their home-and-home with Toronto. Newly re-signed Sam Reinhart will not dress tonight.

2. The MNT Line

As reported by Joe Yerdon during yesterday’s practice, Casey Mittelstadt centered a line with Alex Nylander and Tage Thompson on the wing. If Phil Housley elects to keep them together tonight, they’ll be a trio to pay close attention to.
