1 p.m. ET; NHLN, SN1, SUN, MSG-B, NHL.TV
The Tampa Bay Lightning will look to defeat the Buffalo Sabres for the second consecutive day when the teams conclude the 2019 NHL Global Series at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm on Saturday.
The Lightning, who won the first game 3-2 on Friday, are 2-2-1 in their past five games. Victor Hedman, Tampa Bay's only Sweden-born player, had an assist after missing the previous two games because of a lower-body injury.
The Sabres have been outscored 18-9 in their past six games (1-4-1). Carter Hutton is expected to start, but coach Ralph Krueger left open the possibility of going back to Linus Ullmark, who made 31 saves on Friday.
Players to watch
Sabres forward Sam Reinhart scored two goals against Tampa Bay and has five points (three goals, two assists) in his past five games.
Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov scored and played a season-high 21:23 on Friday.

"I feel both teams understand the competitiveness of [the Atlantic Division] and this first challenge between us is worth more than just two points, and I think that is why you had the intensity tonight." -- Sabres coach Ralph Krueger
"We made smart decisions with the puck and when you do that, you limit odd-man rushes, which is what I thought we did tonight. Now we are making them play from the other side of the ice and we did a really good job defending." -- Lightning coach Jon Cooper
