The Buffalo Sabres will look to sweep the New York Rangers in this early season two-game series. The Sabres beat the Rangers on Tuesday night in a closely contested game that ended in a 3-2 victory. Buffalo will look to continue their two-game win streak tonight against New York.
The Sabres power play unit has been firing on all cylinders during their last couple of games. Over the past two games, Buffalo has converted on five of their nine power play opportunities. They are up to a power play percentage of 30.8% on the season, which is good enough for eighth in the league.

The Rangers have now lost four games in a row and only have one win on the season so far. They have plummeted to the very bottom of the East Division. They will be extremely desperate to get a win against the Sabres tonight.
The Sabres seem to be starting to gain chemistry and are beginning to show the potential that this group has. They have started to convert on their opportunities and look much more in sync with each other. You would like to think that the more that this group plays together, the better they will look.
Henri Jokiharju was added to Buffalo’s injury list before Tuesday’s game and he did not play. According to head coach Ralph Krueger, Jokiharju will be out again tonight and Matt Irwin will take his place in the lineup.
The expected goalies for tonight’s matchup are Igor Shesterkin for the Rangers and Linus Ullmark for the Sabres.
