The Buffalo Sabres return home tonight to take on the Colorado Avalanche at KeyBank Center.
Faceoff is set for 7 p.m. on MSG and 1520 AM with pregame coverage on MSG starting at 6:30. Tickets are on sale now.
The Sabres are 3-1-1 over their last five games and are coming off a 5-4 shootout win in Detroit last night. Colorado lost 5-0 in Winnipeg to wrap up November, a month in which they went 8-3-0.
The Sabres have four players with at least 20 points this season - Tage Thompson (29), Rasmus Dahlin (21), Jeff Skinner (23) and Alex Tuch (22).
Dylan Cozens has tallied 10 points (4+6) in his last 10 games and is on the cusp of joining that group with eight goals and 18 points. He scored twice against Detroit.
Buffalo's 3.70 goals scored per game is highest by a Sabres team since the 1992-93 Sabres recorded 3.99 goals per game.
The 2006-07 Sabres were the last team in franchise history to have three or more skaters with at least one point per game played - Maxim Afinogenov, 1.09; Daniel Briere, 1.17; Thomas Vanek, 1.02).
Colorado has three players over the 20-point threshold - Mikko Rantanen (29), Nathan MacKinnon (28), and Cale Makar (21) - and just one player - Rantanen (13) - with more than 10 goals.
Only Vancouver and Buffalo have four players with at least 10 goals.
This is the first of two meetings between the Sabres and the Avalanche this season. The last time these clubs met, Colorado defeated Buffalo 5-3 at KeyBank Center on February 19.
The Sabres are 2-8-0 in their last 10 games against the Avalanche and 2-6-2 at home.
This is the 150th game all-time between Buffalo and Colorado. Buffalo has a 62-63-24 series record and is 38-25-11 at home against the Avalanche all-time.
These two teams will face off again on Thursday, December 15 in Colorado
