Pittsburgh Penguins (10-5-0) @ Buffalo Sabres (6-8-1) NBC, TSN2, 12:30 pm/et First Niagara Center - Buffalo, NY The Pens visit Buffalo on a cold Sunday.  The Sabres are 11th in the East and they haven't won two games-in-a-row since the first two of the season. They beat the Bruins 4-2 on Friday. The Pens are one point behind New Jersey for the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference lead.  Season Series: 0-0-0 Last meeting that counted: March 30, 2012. Pens won 5-3. What we said in our recap: A couple of great things out of this game. One was Brent Johnson not embarrassing the human race. Whatever his injury was, it looks cleared up. Another great thing was that an apparently out-of-sorts Pens team went into the building of a team fighting for a playoff spot and matched the intensity. The Sabres were the hottest team in the league, on a 5-game winning streak. Not anymore. And how about Dupuis' 13-game point streak? WTF. Longest points streak in the league this season. Know Your Enemy: Die by the Blade What they're saying: The Buffalo Sabres are coming off of a third period comeback against the Boston Bruins that saw both Tyler Myers and Drew Stafford play their best games of the season. Steve Ott laid down the most hits for a Sabres player since the Winter Classic, and Ryan Miller got some help from all three posts to put together another very strong effort. Next up is Pittsburgh, in front of a national audience as the leading game of NBC's Hockey Day In America. Pittsburgh Penguins Lines: Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis Cooke - Malkin - Neal Bennett - Sutter - Kennedy Glass - Vitale - Adams Orpik - Martin Niskanen - Letang Despres - Engelland Fleury Buffalo Sabres Lines: Vanek - Hodgson - Pominville Foligno - Ennis - Stafford Gerbe - Grigorenko - Ott Scott - Hecht - Kaleta Regehr - Myers Sekera - Ehrhoff Leopold - Weber Miller Lines via Daily Faceoff. It's Hockey Day in America. Do It. Go Pens.
