Lightning-Sabres preview

Today

Lightning at Sabres

When/where: 1, First Niagara Center, Buffalo, N.Y.

TV/radio: Sun Sports; 970-AM

Key stats: The Lightning dominated the Sabres last season (4-0-1), outscoring them 16-3. But Buffalo has a much different look, especially with June's No. 2 overall draft pick, C Jack Eichel, who scored Thursday in his NHL debut. … Backup G Chad Johnson will start for Buffalo after Robin Lehner suffered a lower-body injury Thursday. … Lightning G Ben Bishop is 2-0-0 with a shutout and a 0.50 goals-against average against the Sabres. … C Cedric Paquette (left foot) could return.
