Sabres look to bounce back vs. well-rested Canucks

The Buffalo Sabres continue their three-game road trip through Canada on Saturday afternoon when they visit the Vancouver Canucks.

The trip started on Thursday night with a 4-3 loss at Calgary and concludes Sunday in Edmonton. Buffalo, which began the season with a 9-2-1 start, has gone just 4-9-4 in its past 17 games. Nonetheless, the Sabres enter Friday's action still tied for second place in the Atlantic Division with Florida, trailing first-place Boston by 15 points.

Problems on special teams plagued the Sabres in the 4-3 loss at Calgary. Jack Eichel scored a power-play goal with 47.4 seconds remaining to draw Buffalo to within a goal, but the Sabres were 0-for-7 with the extra man before that and also allowed a short-handed goal.
