This game will feature the Colorado Avalanche and the Buffalo Sabres, who will be meeting for the first time this season.
After starting the season 2-0, the Avalanche dropped their last game to the Columbus Blue Jackets by a score of 2-5. They will look to get back on track with a game against an Eastern Conference foe.
So far this season, the Avalanche are averaging 3.7 goals per game and are allowing 2.7 goals. They have yet to earn a shutout this season, so a focus on improving their defending would be helpful going forward. Nathan MacKinnon is the leading goal scorer at three goals while Erik Johnson and Alexander Kerfoot lead the team with four assists each.
The Sabres lost their first game to Boston 0-4, but have since won their other two games. Most recently they defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 4-2.
