Penguins visit Sabres in Wednesday Night Rivalry
NHL.com looks at the tale of the tape between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres leading to their nationally-televised Wednesday Night Rivalry game.

Roughly 180 miles separate the cities they represent, but there's a lot more distance between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres in the standings heading into this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).

The Penguins come to First Niagara Center riding high, with the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Sabres have the fewest points in the NHL and are looking to end a six-game losing streak in their own building.

Quote of the Day

That's the biggest goal I've ever scored. It's a great feeling any time you do that, especially at home. We're one game away from a Stanley Cup berth. It was a huge goal and it felt unbelievable.
