The Buffalo Sabres had the night off after badly losing both the game and a little bit of what pride and dignity they had last night against the Boston Bruins, and will look to use a trip to the Sunshine State to turn some fortune around. That being said there were still twenty teams looking for two points in the standings. Here is your video recap of last nights NHL action.
San Jose Sharks (8-1-1) vs Boston Bruins (7-2-0)

The New York Rangers are closer to home, but still find it tough to get a win, this time even losing to the Flyers 2-1, hopefully all the renovations won’t make MSG feel like less of a home for the Rangers – or that ship could be sunk. New York visits Detroit before getting seven of their next ten games at the newly glossed MSG.
Anaheim Ducks (7-3-0) vs Montreal Canadiens (6-4-0)

Nashville takes the Jets to overtime, and comes out with a 3-2 victory, in a former East vs West matchup, that should look like a West vs East matchup…oh nevermind.
