(Sports Network) - The Buffalo Sabres hope they'll get a chance to go for their fifth straight win to start the season tonight against the New York Rangers at HSBC Arena.

The Buffalo area was slammed by nearly two feet of snow on Thursday, and a state of emergency was declared in the region. It was a very heavy and wet snow that brought down trees and power lines, leaving a significant number of businesses and homes without power.

As of Saturday morning this evening's game was still scheduled to go on as planned.

On Friday the Sabres continued their strong start, posting a 3-2 shootout win in Detroit. Ales Kotalik's shootout goal lifted Buffalo to its first win in the Motor City since 1994.

With the shootout even, Kotalik went to the backhand to beat Dominik Hasek. Three of the Sabres' four victories this season have come via shootout

Chris Drury and Thomas Vanek each scored in regulation for the Sabres, who were outshot by a 43-17 margin. Goaltender Ryan Miller finished with 41 saves.

The Sabres' 4-0 clip marks their best start since the 1975-76 club won a franchise-record eight straight games to open the season.

Buffalo will host Philadelphia on Tuesday.
