The Winnipeg Jets' pursuit of a playoff berth in their first season back in the NHL will resume in front of a nationally-televised audience Monday night.

The Jets -- who currently have a one-point lead for eighth place in the Eastern Conference, will face the Buffalo Sabres at the MTS Centre. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the United States.

Buffalo (30-27-8) has won three in a row behind the stellar goaltending of Ryan Miller. The Sabres trail the Jets by just two points for the No. 8 seed in the East.

Monday's action begins at 7 p.m. ET, when the Pittsburgh Penguins aim for their sixth straight win against the Phoenix Coyotes at the Consol Energy Center.

In the final game of the evening, the Edmonton Oilers face the Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center at 10 p.m. ET.
Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
