Tonight's matchup

From @SabresPR's Game Notes…

  • This is the fourth and final meeting between the Sabres and Red Wings this season.
  • Last meeting: Detroit defeated Buffalo 4-3 (SO) in Buffalo on Feb. 6.
  • The Sabres are 6-2-2 in their last 10 games vs. the Red Wings; 3-4-3 at home.


  • Today's game is the eighth in a 20-day stretch during which the Sabres play nine of 10 games at home. The lone road game during that span was a 3-2 win on Friday at NY Rangers.
  • The road team has won seven of the last eight meetings between the Sabres and Red Wings, including each of the last five.


  • The Sabres are 10-2-3 against the Red Wings since the beginning of the 2016-17 season, including a 3-1-3 record at home.


  • Buffalo has killed 38 of 43 penalties (88.4%) against Detroit in the 12 meetings between the clubs dating back to March 20, 2017.


  • Jimmy Vesey enters tonight's game on a three-game point streak (2+2). He would tie the best streak of his career (Nov. 24 to 29, 2019) with a point tonight.
