The Sabres lead the Northeast Division with 50 points.
They’re coming off of a 5-3 victory in St. Louis on Sunday night.
The Penguins changed up their forward lines for the morning skate:
Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Pascal Dupuis
Mike Rupp – Evgeni Malkin – Bill Guerin
Matt Cooke – Jordan Staal – TylerKennedy
Max Talbot – Craig Adams – Eric Godard/Ruslan Fedotenko
The Pens have not announced who will be starting in goal, but with back-to-back games over the next two nights, Brent Johnson may get a shot.
Ryan Miller will be in net for the Sabres.
He currently leads the NHL with a .935 save percentage.
