Buffalo Sabres (9-15-2) at Florida Panthers (10-7-7), 7 p.m. (ET)

(SportsNetwork.com) – The Buffalo Sabres will look to rebound on Saturday
night against an opponent that they have struggled against as of late.

The Sabres hope to snap a four-game series losing streak to the Florida
Panthers as the two clubs clash at BB&T Center.

Buffalo is coming off just its second loss in eight games, but it was a bad
one as the club fell 5-0 to Tampa Bay on Thursday in the conclusion of a home-
and-home set. The Lightning’s Ben Bishop had to make just 13 saves to record
the shutout at home.

Jhonas Enroth gave up all five Tampa Bay goals on 35 shots for the Sabres, who
were coming off a sweep of a home-and-home set with Montreal and then a
victory at home over Tampa Bay on Tuesday in a shootout.

“We just lost track of what we have to do in order to be successful,” said
Sabres head coach Ted Nolan.

Nolan did not have the services of forward Drew Stafford for a third straight
game because of a lower-body injury, but he could return to action tonight.

The Sabres have lost eight of their past 11 against the Panthers, including a
1-0 setback at home back on Oct. 17. Enroth made 34 saves, but it will be
Michal Neuvirth who starts in goal tonight.

Neuvirth, who has not started since Nov. 18, is 3-4-1 with a 2.69 goals
against average and .919 save percentage iat held the 6-1 NC State
Wolfpack to just 37.3 percent accuracy on their field goal attempts. The
Titans certainly aren’t going to be dropping 109 points on a Bulls team that
doesn’t want to lose back-to-back games for the first time this season.
