The Sabres have their first road game of the season in Arizona

October 13, 2018 - 1:48 pm

(WGR 550) - The Sabres visit Arizona tonight after going 2-2 at home. The Coyotes are 1-2 overall, but 0-1 at home. The home game was a 1-0 loss to Anaheim.

Arizona is 1-for-9 on the power play and are perfect on seven penalty kills. The biggest problem for the Coyotes is they were shutout in their first two games of the season before scoring three in a shootout win over the Ducks. That means in two games, only two goals have gone into the net. Dylan Strome is finally with the NHL team and he has one of the two goals.

Buffalo is 7-2-1 in its last 10 vs. the Coyotes. The Sabres are 8-2 in their last 10 in Arizona.

The Sabres came into the Colorado game 3-for-8 on the power play, but went 0-for-7 against the Avalanche. The Sabres had killed 5-of-6 penalties, but the Avalanche went 2-for-4.

Carter Hutton has played all four games for the Sabres. Phil Housley said on Friday that Linus Ullmark will play on this trip. It's possible Zach Bogosian could return very soon. 

Join me and Brian Koziol for the pregame starting at 8:00. You be able to hear from Phil Housley, Jack Eichel and Linus Ullmark.
