Devils look for first home win
The New Jersey Devils have found life at the Prudential Center anything but rewarding this season. The Devils are 0-5-1 on home ice, but hope to start turning things around Wednesday night when they host the Buffalo Sabres.

The Devils are coming off a four-day break following a 3-0 home loss to the New York Rangers on Friday. The Sabres are one of the five teams to beat the Devils in regulation at The Rock this season and are coming off a 3-2 shootout win at Toronto on Friday.

The Sabres-Devils game is one of six on the schedule -- and one of three that starts at 7 p.m. ET.

Pittsburgh comes home after a four-game trip that ended with a 4-3 shootout win at Phoenix to host Boston, while St. Louis tries to complete a sweep of its three-game trip with a victory at Columbus. The Blues won at Boston and New York over the weekend, while the Jackets lost 3-2 at home to Minnesota on Saturday. The Bruins-Penguins game will be shown on the NHL Network in the United States.

A half-hour later, Toronto completes a two-game trip to Florida with a visit to the Panthers, who've been off since Saturday's 3-2 loss at Carolina. The game will be shown on TSN in Canada.

The struggling Chicago Blackhawks return to the ice at 8:30 p.m. ET to host Phoenix. The Hawks dropped a 2-1 decision to Edmonton on Sunday, while the Coyotes were beaten 3-2 in overtime at Detroit on Monday.

In the last game of the evening, the New York Islanders will try to break a seven-game losing streak when they begin a swing through California with a visit to Anaheim. The game starts at 10 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NHL Network in the U.S. and Canada.
Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
