Sabres G Michael Houser looks to stay hot against Penguins

There is the jostling at the top of the East standings to watch, of course. The Pittsburgh Penguins' final two games, Thursday and Saturday at home against the Buffalo Sabres, will help determine the final order among the division's four playoff teams.

The Penguins (35-16-3, 73 points) will have at least a share of first place going into Thursday's game and have a shot at finishing first in the East or at least wrapping up home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs.

But the Sabres (15-32-7, 37 points), while locked into last place in the division, are packing an interesting storyline as they head to Pittsburgh for both teams' final two games of the regular season.
