About the Jets

Tonight's game -- note the start time -- wraps an eight-game homestand that has pushed the Jets into the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Winnipeg is 4-1-2 so far and with just one outright loss in the last eight games (5-1-2), now has 70 points... LW Evander Kane has an eight-game points streak active, with 7-7-14. He's coming off a four-point night Thursday against Florida... Winnipeg's power play is No. 1 in the NHL at home at 25.2 per cent and No. 7 overall at 19.8... RW Blake Wheeler has points in seven of his last eight games, 4-11-15... D Zach Bosogian is out with an injury tonight; could mark the Jets debut of D Grant Clitsome, claimed on waivers last week... Winnipeg is 2-0-1 vs. Buffalo this season.

About the Sabres

Hot streak of 6-0-2, including Saturday's 5-3 win in Vancouver, has lifted the Sabres into the conversation about the Eastern Conference playoffs, now with 68 points... Buffalo is 11-3-3 in its last 17; total includes four shootout wins... The Sabres' last outright loss was Feb. 16 vs. Philadelphia... G Ryan Miller has started eight straight and won six of them... Buffalo's power play ranks 24th in the NHL; its penalty-killing 20th... Newest member is C Cody Hodsgon, the former Manitoba Moose, who has yet to record a point in four outings with the Sabres since being acquired at last week's trade deadline. Hodgson, with 33 points, is in the conversation for NHL rookie of the year.
