What to Watch
1. Red Hot
This game is why the Oiler game on Monday getting away from the Sabres turned this trip into a potential disaster. The Flames are one of the hottest team in the league winning eight of their last 10.
They also showcase one of the best lines in the game with Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Elias Lindholm.
It’s going to be a tough night.
2. The Pilut is back
After sitting against the Oilers on Monday, Lawrence Pilut will return to the lineup tonight. He’ll go in for Nathan Beaulieu and will be paired with Rasmus Ristolainen.
3. Ullmark in goal
Carter Hutton has struggled (with bad luck) in his last few starts and didn’t get through his last start on Monday. The Sabres will turn to Linus Ullmark tonight to try to get back on track.
