About the Jets: Now 3-2-1 on their current road trip, the longest of the NHL season, after Sunday's 3-zip loss to the Rangers... Jets power play ranks 21st overall and was 0-for-3 in the loss to New Jersey on Saturday and 0-for-4 against the Rangers... Jim Slater is tied with three other skaters for the top shooting percentage in the NHL: 33.3 per cent... Ondrej Pavelec is expected to make his seventh straight start in goal against the Sabres... Winnipeg opened the trip with a 9-8 win over Philly and has the same goals total over the last five games.

About the Sabres: Sit second in the Northeast Division with a 8-5-0 record, but are just 3-4 at home...
