The Winnipeg Jets (5-8-1) begin a five-game road trip in Buffalo tonight against the (6-9-1) Sabres.
 
Ondrej Pavelec (Jets) and Ryan Miller (Sabres) will be the starting goaltenders. Pavelec is playing his 200th NHL game tonight.
 
Head coach Claude Noel told TSN 1290 this morning he will make only one roster change compared to Sunday's loss at home to Boston.  Defenseman Grant Clitsome returns to the line up after being a healthy scratch for the past three games.  Rookie Zach Redmond is the odd man out.

Evander Kane is on a three-game point streak (one goal and two assists).
 
The Jets are 0/10 in their last five games on the power play.
 
The Sabres are coming off a 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh Sunday which was their 3rd defeat in the last four games.
 
Thomas Vanek enters tonight's game as the NHL's goal (12) and points (25) leader.
 
Christian Ehrhoff has one goal and three assists in his last two games, while Cody Hodgson has scored in back-to-back games.
