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.

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
