Preview: Sabres at Penguins

“We definitely are excited for the fact that we’re going to be here a little bit more,” said Crosby, who is mired in an 11-game goal drought. The two-time Hart Trophy winner has 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists) in 34 career encounters against Buffalo, with two goals coming in three meetings last season. Buffalo’s Jack Eichel, who tallied once versus Pittsburgh last season, is keeping optimistic despite failing to score in his last eight games overall. “You’re going to go through ups and downs,” the 21-year-old Eichel said. “Maybe fighting the puck, doing a little too much thinking. Just (need to) get back to playing – moving my feet, doing the things that make me successful. Just try to get engaged mentally and physically early.”<BR><BR><STRONG>TV: </STRONG>7 p.m. ET, MSG-Buffalo, SN1, AT&T Sports Network-Pittsburgh
