(Sports Network) - The Northeast Division-leading Buffalo Sabres should be well-rested tonight when they welcome the Florida Panthers to HSBC Arena.

The Sabres haven't played since Sunday evening when they posted a close win at Madison Square Garden. Daniel Briere scored two goals, including the game- winner with 1:03 left in overtime, as Buffalo came-from-behind to beat the New York Rangers, 4-3.

Jason Pominville's ninth goal of the season in the third period tied the game for the Sabres, who rebounded from their first regulation loss on Saturday to Toronto.

Goaltender Martin Biron started in place of Ryan Miller and finished with 26 saves. The win improved Buffalo to 8-0-0 as the visitor this year and gave the Sabres the NHL record for most consecutive road victories to a start a season.

Buffalo is 12-1-1 on the year and leads the Northeast Division by two points over Toronto.

The Panthers, meanwhile, are in last place in the Southeast Division. They played on Wednesday evening against the visiting New York Rangers and were handed a shootout loss. Martin Straka scored a pair of goals in regulation and Michael Nylander lit the lamp in the shootout, as New York edged Florida, 4-3, at the BankAtlantic Center.
