Preview: Sabres at Sharks

The Sharks halted the Sabres’ five-game winning streak in San Jose and a 10-0-1 run overall in the series in mid-March, but they are more preoccupied with their own play. “When you’re sitting two losses with no points in the standings, it stirs you up and makes you hungry to go get a ‘W’ and makes you want to come fired up for Thursday,” center Chris Tierney said. Buffalo also is searching for its first victory as it opens a four-game road trip and trying to group after being pierced for 12 goals in its last two defeats. “Yeah, I know it’s only three games, but it’s six points,” defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen said. “At the end of the year the schedule might be tough and you need every point so right now the good thing is, it’s only three games so we can regroup and be strong on this tough road trip against really, really good teams.”<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 10:30 p.m. ET, MSG-Buffalo, NBCSports California (San Jose)
