Scouting the Sabres

Penguins/NHL Videos

By The The Tribune-Review
Friday, Jan. 5, 2007
 

Today's game

Penguins (17-15-6) at Buffalo Sabres (29-8-3)

When, where: 8 p.m., HSBC Arena (Buffalo)

TV/radio: FSNP/105.9 FM

Probable goaltenders: Marc-Andre Fleury (16-11-4, 2.96 GAA); Ryan Miller (21-6-2, 2.66 GAA)

Notable: The Sabres are coming off a 6-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday, just their eighth regulation loss of the season and their first in seven games. ... Daniel Briere leads the team in scoring and is 11th in the NHL with 15 goals and 31 assists in 40 games. ... Tomas Vanek is eighth in goals in the NHL with 22. ... Somewhat surprising given their record is that the Sabres' power play is only ranked 17th in the league at 17 percent and their penalty kill is 15th at 82.7 percent.
