It's a game night in Washington, D.C.
The Sabres will meet the reigning Stanley Cup champions twice in the upcoming week, beginning with a visit to Capital One Arena tonight. Coverage on MSG-B begins at 6:30 p.m. with the GMC Game Night pregame show, or you can listen live on WGR 550. The puck drops at 7.
The Sabres will be without forward Patrik Berglund, who was suspended this morning. Defenseman Marco Scandella, out for the past eight games with an upper-body injury, has not been ruled out for a return to the lineup.
