The Buffalo Sabres look to keep things rolling tonight as they are set to host the Arizona Coyotes tonight at KeyBank Center. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m.

Season series: Tonight’s matchup is the last of a two-game season series between Buffalo and Arizona. The last time these two teams squared off was on Saturday, October 12th when Buffalo shutout the Coyotes in the desert with a score of 3-0.

Buffalo notes: After beating the Los Angeles Kings in Overtime Tuesday night and ending a five-game losing streak, the Sabres are hoping to build on their confidence against a struggling Coyotes team that ranks 25th in the league standings.

With Jeff Skinner getting his first goal in four games (the longest goalless streak of the season since the very start of the year), keep an eye on Skinner to start getting hot again. With 19 points (6 goals, 13 assists) in his last 13 games,Jack Eichel has really been a consistent and dependable offensive star.

Arizona notes: After a four-game winning streak, the Coyotes have been cooled off by three tough opponents in a row. While the Sabres have struggled recently, they will likely prove to be a 4th tough opponent in a row for the desert dogs. With 21 points (8 goals, 13 assists) in 29 games, young star, Clayton Keller leads the way offensively for the young Coyotes.
