NHL.com @NHL

The Buffalo Sabres unveiled their uniform for the 2018 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic against the New York Rangers at Citi Field on Jan. 1 (1 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVA Sports, NHL.TV).

The uniform combines design concepts from the Sabres' early years with alterations of their logo and elements from their 40th anniversary jersey to create a unique look that recalls 48 years of NHL hockey in Buffalo. The royal blue is reflective of the Sabres' original color scheme from the 1970s, a change from their current navy blue, and the striping is inspired by their 40th anniversary uniform.

Facts and Figures: Islanders loving Saturday

Undefeated record on day of week includes road wins against conference leaders Blues, Lightning

by John Kreiser @jkreiser7713 / NHL.com Managing Editor

The New York Islanders are doing something this season they couldn't do in 2016-17: win games on Saturday.

A key reason the Islanders came up one point short of a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season was that they were 3-8-5 in the 16 games they played on Saturday, including 2-7-2 in road games. Though the Islanders have played four of their six Saturday games this season on the road, they are 6-0-0, including wins away from home one week apart against the two conference leaders, the St. Louis Blues (5-2 on Nov. 11) and the Tampa Bay Lightning (5-3 on Saturday). They also have road wins against the San Jose Sharks (3-1 on Oct. 14) and Nashville Predators (6-2 on Oct. 28), and home wins against the Buffalo Sabres (6-3 on Oct. 7) and the Sharks (5-3 on Oct. 21).
