NBCSP to air Rangers-Sabres
For the first time in nearly three weeks, the Buffalo Sabres are home.

The Sabres host the New York Rangers in one of five games on Wednesday night's NHL schedule -- and their first game at the First Niagara Center since Jan. 14. Buffalo finished a marathon seven-game road trip on a positive note Tuesday by winning 3-1 in Montreal. The Rangers come to Western New York after a 4-3 shootout loss at New Jersey on Tuesday.

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

Two other games also start at 7:30. Pittsburgh visits Toronto looking for a sweep of a home-and-home series after winning 5-4 in a shootout on Tuesday. That game can be seen in Canada on TSN. Washington, a 4-3 overtime loser at Tampa Bay on Tuesday, visits Florida in a battle for first place in the Southeast Division.

The other two games both begin at 10:30 p.m. ET -- and will be played in Southern California. Anaheim returns after a 4-1 win at Phoenix on Tuesday to host Dallas in a game that can be seen in Canada on the NHL Network. A little bit up the highway, Los Angeles plays its first game since Jan. 23 when it hosts Columbus, which lost 6-0 at San Jose on Tuesday.
Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
