New York Islanders vs. Buffalo Sabres: Isles Looking For Third In Metro

The walking wounded, otherwise known as the New York Islanders, will welcome in the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

  • New York Islanders (45-26-9)
  • Buffalo Sabres (34-36-11)
  • NHL, Today, 7:30 PM on MSGB, MSG+, Full Preview
  • Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York

These days it’d be tough to distinguish a difference between a hospital and the New York Islanders locker room, for the entire team is seemingly injured.

The latest victim comes in the form of Anders Lee who broke his leg during the Isles victory at Madison Square Garden against the New York Rangers two nights ago.


Nevertheless, the show must go on, and for the Isles third place in the Metropolitan Division is still in reach.

Tonight they’ll welcome in the Buffalo Sabres to the Barclays Center. Goaltender Christopher Gibson will get the call in effort to provide starter Thomas Greiss a breather.

First puck drop comes your way at 7:30 PM ET.
