Sabres end road swing seeking sixth-straight victory

The surging Buffalo Sabres eye a sixth straight win when they wrap up their road trip with a visit to the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

The Sabres head into the contest after dispatching the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, taking a 3-0 lead before the Jets scored twice in the final minutes. Buffalo is 6-1-1 in its past eight games and 14-5-1 since Dec. 13, when the Sabres kicked off their most recent six-game winning streak.

"This team is fantastic," goalie Eric Comrie said. "It's the most fun I've (had) playing hockey in my whole life. It's just fun to be a part of, it's a fun group to be around. We love the game of hockey and we love each other. It's that kind of atmosphere that just breeds performance. Guys want to come here now and it's so much fun to be a part of that. Seeing these guys just battle every single night is pretty special."
