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.
