For the first time this season, the Buffalo Sabres are coming off of a win. Thursday, the Sabres are looking to start a win streak for the first time as well. To do so, the Sabres will have to face the 4-3-0 Vancouver Canucks.
The Sabres have won two in a row over the Canucks and will hope to extend that streak in the first of two meetings between the teams.
The Canucks have lost two of their last three games and have been working on ways to fix their recent scoring woes, even if that means splitting the Sedin brothers up.
"Listen, [the twins] play really well together, and it's very tough to split them up, but I think at times that's going to happen," head coach John Tortorella said. "I think as you go through the game, those are calls we'll make, but it's awful tough to keep them away from one another because they play so very well together."
For the Sabres, it's time to work off of their first win, which was another one goal game, their sixth of the season. Now it's time to get a streak going to play catch up in the early parts of the season.
"It gives us a chance to feel good for a little while and see if we can build. The key now is to build,” goaltender Ryan Miller said.
The Sabres have seen some injuries so far this season and for tonight's game it appears that forward Zegmus Girgensons is questionable, forward Patrick Kaleta is suspended and defenseman Nikita Zadorov is questionable.
Ville Leino and Corey Tropp are both out indefinitely.
