The Buffalo Sabres (0-1-1) are looking to work off of their overtime loss and hopefully bring a win to First Niagara Center as they host the Columbus Blue Jackets (1-1-0) at 7:00 p.m. Thursday.
The Sabres, who lost on Tuesday to the Tampa Bay Lightning in overtime, are hoping to keep things moving in the right direction after a slow 0-2 start to the season.
For the Blue Jackets, it's the first time they'll face the Sabres as conference foes after the realignment moved them into the Easter Conference's Metropolitan Division.
An interesting note tonight will be that brothers Marcus Foligno and Nick Foligno will be squaring off against one another. This will be the second matchup of brothers for the Sabres this season as the season opener against the Detroit Red Wings featured a matchup between Ryan and Drew Miller.
Ryan Miller who has been sidelined since last weekend practiced on Wednesday and head coach Ron Rolston said the goaltender is ready and available to play on Thursday.
Here are the lines from Thursday's morning skate:
