As usual, there will be more than a few Chicago Blackhawks jerseys in the crowd as they face the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. There’s extra motivation for Sabres fans to don Patrick Kane sweaters, however, as he plays in his hometown.
The game airs on NBCSN while the live stream link is available below.
Chicago hopes to distance itself from the Colorado Avalanche, as they have one more point with the same 18 games remaining, yet the Avalanche carry the wins tiebreaker (41-37) at the moment. There’s not much at stake for the Sabres aside from pride and some talent evaluation, particularly with a slew of players injured. The Sabres face a team that might lay out something of a rebuilding blueprint for Buffalo as they face the ‘Hawks tonight.
