The Devils (6-3-3) are in Buffalo to take on the Sabres (5-5-3) tonight at Key Bank Center. Here's what you need to know:
1) The Devils want to go streaking. They're looking for their second straight road win and third consecutive win overall in tonight's match-up. The Sabres are coming off an overtime loss on Wednesday and are 1-3-1 at home so far this season.
2) Keith Kinkaid (1-0-1, 1.98 GAA, .937 save percentage) will get the start tonight in the first of a back-to-back home-and-home against Buffalo. Anders Nilsson (1-1-1, 1.96 GAA, .937 save percentage) will start for the Sabres. Cory Schneider and Robin Lehner will start tomorrow in New Jersey.
3) The Sabres are presently dealing with a revolving door of injuries. No Jack Eichel, Zach Bogosian, Tyler Ennis or Dmitry Kulikov. Evander Kane returned to the lineup for the last game. The Devils will make no changes on defense, but might tinker with the forwards. If anything, look for Devante Smith-Pelly to work his way back in having been out of the lineup the past two games.
