It's the first home game for two of the newest Sabres, center Cody Hodgson and defenseman Alexander Sulzer, both of whom were acquired from the Vancouver Canucks at the trade deadline. Sulzer, however, likely won't play against the Hurricanes.
Here's how the Sabres' lineup could look when they hit the ice tonight:
Ryan Miller will start in goal, with Jhonas Enroth the backup. Monday's loss to Winnipeg was the Miller's first regulation loss in nine games. However, he's still 6-1-2 in his last nine games, with a pair of shutouts.
