Hear from the Devils as the club gears up for their third and final matchup with the Sabres this season

  • 01:57 •

The Devils aim to continue their winning ways as they host the Buffalo Sabres tonight at Prudential Center. Here's what you need to know: 

1) The Devils are going with the same lineup for a third game in a row, including Cory Schneider between the pipes, with one exception - Kyle Quincey is out with an upper body injury and will be replaced by Karl Stollery, who was recalled from Albany this afternoon. 

2) Tonight is the third and final regular-season meeting between the Devils and Sabres this year. The Devils are 2-0-0 having defeated the Sabres 2-1 in overtime on Nov. 11 at KeyBank Center and 4-2 on Nov. 12 at Prudential Center. The last time the Devils swept Buffalo in a season-series was in 2014-15 (3-0-0).

3) This game is one of those "four point games" that are crucial to win at this point in the season. The Devils are five points out of a playoff spot, and two points ahead of the Sabres, who are tied for last in the Eastern Conference. A win tonight will give them 7-out-of-8 points since the All-Star break, help them head into their five-day break on a high note AND put two more points between themselves and another team battling for a playoff spot. 

You can watch tonight's game on MSG+ or listen to it on WFAN or The One Jersey Network. Puck drops at 7 p.m.
