Wild host surprising Sabres

When the schedule came out during the summer, Minnesota Wild fans might have looked at Saturday's visit from the Buffalo Sabres as a pretty sure two points.

Given what's happened the first quarter of the season, they might want to rethink that notion. Not because the Wild aren't playing well, because at 12-5-2, they are just a point behind Nashville for first place in the Central Division.

It's because Buffalo, after years of playing mostly terrible hockey, appears to have finally become a good team again. Phil Housley's second year behind the bench is going much better than the first, as the Sabres (11-6-2) have made a big statement this week.
