- Previews of today's 3pm matinee meetup with the Sabres from Vogs, NHL.com, CBSSports.com and Peerless, be sure to check in with our SB Nation pals over at Die By The Blade for the other side of today's matchup.
- The Wizards played at the Verizon Center yesterday, in a game that was halted twice when water started raining from the ceiling onto the court. Presumably this problem will be fully resolved by puck drop. [Deadspin, PBT]
- There's a bit of roster drama extant for both teams:
- Buffalo is expecting to have Cody Hodgson and Ville Leino returning from injury and back in the lineup for this game. To make room for the vets, they reassigned Mikhail Grigorenko to his QMJHL junior team the Quebec Remparts, but he has declined to report. Oh my. [DBTB, Buffalo News, Puck Daddy]
- And for Washington, the goalie question hasn't got any easier to answer. [CSNW]
