'A Sabres victory will have a threefold effect on the NHL standings. A win would: A) clinch the Northeast Division, giving the Sabres their first division title since 1996-97; B) clinch the Eastern Conference, giving the Sabres their first regular-season conference crown since 1979-80; and C) put the Sabres in first place in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy, awarded to the team with the most points. The Detroit Red Wings lead the Sabres, 107-106.'
