The Penguins look to get back into the win column against some soft competition, as they welcome the Buffalo Sabres to PPG for a Wednesday night, nationally televised tilt.

The Pens split a weekend doubleheader with the Devils, posting a 3-1 victory on Saturday and eeking out a point in a 2-1 OT loss on Sunday, all without the services of BTan.

Jarry between the pipes again, and let’s just say, for a team missing it’s 2nd and 3rd centres, the ZAR/McCann/Kap line is exciting behind a line as dominant as Crosby’s has been this year.

The Sabres are comically bad. They’ve amassed just 6 wins and 16 points in their first 30 games of the abbreviated schedule.

Sam Reinhart leads the team with 20 points (11G, 9A) and Jack Eichel, despite having been out of the lineup for weeks, still leads them in the assists department with 16.

Dustin Tokarski, the fourth goalie to appear in game action, gets his second start of the year guarding the Buffalo crease.


Hall – Cozens – Reinhart
