Red-hot Sabres begin Calif. swing in Anaheim

One of two Eastern Conference teams without a defeat in regulation will take its must-see show to the West Coast as the Buffalo Sabres play at the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

At 5-0-1, the Sabres have 11 points out of a possible 12 and the start to the season is their best since the 2008-09 team also opened with a 5-0-1 mark. But four of those victories have come at home, with Wednesday's game beginning a three-game California swing that also will include stops at Los Angeles and San Jose.

Buffalo's only blemish on the season was a 4-3 overtime defeat at Columbus on Oct. 7, when rookie Victor Olofsson scored on the power play to tie it with just more than a minute remaining in regulation.
