The Sabres are just finishing up a two-game homestand which began with a 2-0 shut-out win against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday, March 12 and now Buffalo concludes their two-game homestand as they face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night at 7 p.m. in Buffalo.

The Penguins are now 38-24-9 and are in third place in the Metropolitan Division.

When Thursday night comes around, the Penguins and Sabres will meet for the third and final time this season. These two teams last played in Buffalo on March 1, in which the Sabres won that game by the score of 4-3 in overtime.
