Sabres-Hawks on NBCSP highlights Wednesday
The road hasn't been kind to the Buffalo Sabres in recent weeks, and a trip to the United Center doesn't figure to make things any easier.

The Sabres continue their seven-game road trip with a stop in Chicago, one of four games on Wednesday's NHL schedule. Buffalo lost 5-0 at Detroit on Monday, its ninth straight loss away from the First Niagara Center. The Hawks have been off since beating San Jose 4-3 at home on Sunday night.

The NBC Sports Network will air the game in the United States, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. TSN2 will show the game to Canadian viewers.

Also at 7:30, Washington will try to bounce back from Tuesday's 3-0 home loss to the Islanders when it travels to Montreal. The Canadiens had two days off to savor Sunday's 4-1 win against the Rangers. RDS and TSN will televise the game in Canada.

At 9:30 p.m. ET, Florida starts a road trip with a visit to Colorado. The Panthers are coming off a 3-2 shootout loss at home to Boston on Monday, a game that ended a few hours after the Avs were routed 6-1 in Phoenix.

In the last game of the night, the Coyotes travel to Anaheim, where the improving Ducks are 5-0-1 in their last six games after Sunday's 4-2 win in Anaheim. Canadian viewers can see the game on the NHL Network, beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
Quote of the Day

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
