Coming off a 5-4 overtime win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday, Buffalo Sabres head coach Ralph Krueger will go with an entirely different lineup for the team's preseason game tonight. 

Of the 21 players set to take on the Columbus Blue Jackets, 14 of them suited up for Buffalo or Rochester last season and five players (Jean-Sebastien Dea, Kyle Olson, Arttu Ruotsalainen, Henri Jokiharju and Andrew Hammond) are completely new to the organization. Jokiharju is the only player on the roster who played Monday. 

The game will be streamed live on Sabres.com in the Sabres' local broadcast market starting at 7 p.m. from Nationwide Arena. You can also listen to Dan Dunleavy and Rob Ray call the action on WGR 550.
