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.
