Johan Larsson will make his return to the lineup tonight it appears. Hell be in for Remi Elie and play on a line with Casey Mittelstadt and Tage Thompson.
5. Avs have alums. Two pieces of the Sabres 2015 trade with Colorado for Ryan OReilly remain in the Colorado lineup. J.T. Compher, who never played a game for the Sabres, has two goals thus far while centering the fourth line. Defenseman Nikita Zadorov, who played 67 games in Buffalo, has no points and a minus-3 rating on defense. Hes averaging 14:53 per game while playing on the third pair with Mark Barberio.
The Avalanche bring a few old friends to town tonight. Former Sabres first-round pick and defenseman Nikita Zadorov will be in the lineup. J.T. Compher is the other former Sabres draft pick that we could see tonight.
Sabres look to win their third straight game before they head out West for a five-game road trip. Winning three of four at home to start the season would be ideal.
