\ The series

The Blue Jackets are 5-2-1 all-time against the Sabres, including 3-2-0 in HSBC Arena. This is the only meeting between the teams this season.

\ The setup

The Jackets enter off one of their most uninspired efforts of the season, a 5-2 loss to Phoenix. The setback snapped a three-game winning streak. The Jackets played well in Buffalo last season as Pascal Leclaire shut out the Sabres in a 3-0 win. \
