Thomas Vanek sat out Saturday's game in Buffalo with an 'upper body injury' and his status remains unclear for tonight's game in New York. Defensemen Alexander Sulzer and Jordan Leopold are listed as day-to-day with their injuries.
The Sabres got goals Saturday from Jason Pominville (8,9) and Jochen Hecht (1) to lead the team into a shootout with the Devils. Pominville and Tyler Ennis scored while Ryan Miller blanked the two shooters he faces, closing out a game in which Miller stopped 28 of 31 shots. Face off in New York is slated for 7:30.
