Some roster moves to start your day. The Sabres have recalled forward Kyle Criscuolo and defenseman Casey Nelson from the Rochester Americans. 

Criscuolo, who signed a two-year deal with Buffalo in July, is tied for the Amerks lead in points with 11 (5+6) in 14 games. It's the first recall of his career.

Buffalo will practice this morning and then head out to Detroit for their game tomorrow night against the Red Wings so we'll see where Criscuolo and Nelson could slot in.

The Sabres acknowledged after last night's loss to the Florida Panthers that there are areas of their game in which they need to develop more consistency. Luckily, they won't have to wait long for a chance to right the ship.

After falling 4-1 at home on Friday, the Sabres are right back at it tonight as they conclude their back-to-back set against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre. The game will serve as a rematch of opening night, when Montreal won 3-2 in a shootout, and a homecoming for former Canadien Nathan Beaulieu.

Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. with GMC Gamenight on MSG-B, or you can listen live on WGR 550.

"It was just making the right decisions, keeping things simple, not taking things into our own hands and sticking to the game plan. You could see when they make the choices and those decisions, it just seems things work out in your favor."

That was the postagme takeaway from coach Phil Housley after Buffalo's 3-1 win over Washington last night on home ice. Evander Kane scored twice and Benoit Pouliot scored the game winner on an end-to-end beauty. 

Buffalo next plays Friday night at home against the Florida Panthers at 7 p.m. It's our annual Military Appreciation Game at KeyBank Center, dedicated to honoring both current and former members of our nation's armed forces and will feature several tributes throughout the night.

Here's what you need to know.
