Buffalo Sabres Form

Buffalo go into this matchup looking to build on a victory in Ottawa that improved them to 3-4.

The Sabres opened up with back-to-back games against New York teams, losing 5-1 at home to the Rangers and 3-2 to the Islanders on the road.

They finally got off the mark with a 3-2 overtime win against Tampa Bay, only to then lose 4-3 when they entertained Calgary.

The Sabres then suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Montreal before heading to Ottawa to beat the Senators 6-4.

New Jersey come into this on a three-game losing run at home that has dropped them to 3-3.

The Devils opened with a 4-3 victory over Detroit, but they have not managed a home win since that night.

They lost to Arizona via a shootout, before suffering a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Florida.

New Jersey stopped the rot on the road, winning 5-4 in overtime against the New York Islanders, before beating Montreal 5-2.
