Preview from Yahoo Sports:

The Buffalo Sabres' season-high five-game road trip got off to the worst possible start. They hope a meeting with the Tampa Bay Lightning will make their time away from home a little more enjoyable.

The Sabres look for their sixth straight win against the Lightning when the teams meet for the second time this season on Tuesday.

Buffalo (20-4-2) opened the season with an NHL-record 10-game road winning streak, but has since lost two of its last three there, including a 7-4 defeat to Washington on Saturday. The Sabres trailed 3-0 less than eight minutes into the game and never recovered, allowing their most goals this season.

Buffalo also had a season-high 75 penalty minutes, more than double its previous high. Most of them came in the second period when Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin shoulder-checked Daniel Briere from behind into the boards, resulting in his ejection and numerous other skirmishes.

The former Lightning captain will be honored as Tampa Bay faces off against the Sabres, the team Andreychuk started his career with in 1982. After 23 seasons in the NHL, Andreychuk finished as one of the top-scoring left wingers in the League's history, recording 640 goals and 698 assists for 1,338 points in 1,639 regular season games. In 2004 Andreychuk went on to win the Stanley Cup as the seventh captain in the Lightning's history.

Chris Drury scores with 9:26 left in the first 2-1 Buffalo.
Ryan Miller is making some great saves (at least from Dave Michgans reaction they sound like it)
