What to Watch

1. Kraft Hockeyville

The Sabres and Blue Jackets will play in the annual Kraft Hockeyville game tonight in Clinton, NY. These games are always fun to watch in smaller arena’s where fans get up and close with the game action.

2. Sabres bringing big names

The Sabres roster will feature some big names with Jack Eichel, Jeff Skinner, Sam Reinhart, Rasmus Dahlin and Casey Mittelstadt all expected to dress tonight. We’ll see if they can bounce back from two defeats over the weekend.

3. Jackets brining the “A-team” as well

Unlike last time, the Sabres will see a Blue Jackets lineup with some pretty good NHL players. Artemi Panarin, Boone Jenner, Seth Jones and Alex Wennberg are all expected to play tonight.
