Pittsburgh Penguins (33-20-5) @ Buffalo Sabres (24-27-7)
First Niagara Center - Buffalo, NY
The Buffalo Sabres are pretty much a disaster right now. They've lost four-in-a-row.
Season Series: 0-1-0
Last Meeting That Counted: December 17, 2011. Penguins won 8-3.
What we said in our recap:
What a horrible game for Ryan Miller. That's all it comes down to. Jason Williams scored that early goal, and Miller was already deflated. A little later, Dupuis hit the pipe, and Miller already looked defeated. He was ripe for the picking. And the Pens rolled. A Despres goal and Geno's first, and Ryan Miller was yanked.
Toward the end of the first, Malkin scored his second to make it 4-1. Neal and Engelland scored in the second. Malkin completed the hat trick in the third.

The Sabres are bad.
And everyone deserves blame.
