The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Buffalo Sabres will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at KeyBank Center.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS (13-10-3): Captain Sidney Crosby has recorded back-to-back three-point performances, highlighted by recording his 11th career regular-season overtime goal in Monday’s 5-4 win over Philadelphia to move into a tie with Mario Lemieux and Evgeni Malkin for the most in franchise history. The two-time Hart Trophy winner has 10 points in his last four games, including setting up a power-play goal in each of those contests. Phil Kessel also is riding a four-game point streak, with three goals and five assists in that stretch.

ABOUT THE SABRES (6-15-4): Zach Bogosian, who has been sidelined with a lower-body injury, is in line to make his season debut on Friday after participating in a full practice for the third time this week. “I’ve had a couple good days of practice,” Bogosian said. “I feel ready. We’ll see what tomorrow brings, but I’m sure I’ll have a conversation with Coach sometime either today or tomorrow morning and go from there.” Robin Lehner was absent from practice due to a maintenance day, but Housley expects the netminder back on the ice for Friday’s game.

Oddsmakers opened the Penguins as -150-moneyline favorites versus the Sabres, while the game’s total opened at 6.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been patient over the years with Tristan Jarry, a luxury that a team can afford with Marc-Andre Fleury and Matt Murray ahead of him on the depth chart. With Fleury now in Vegas and Murray considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, the visiting Penguins likely will turn to Jarry on Friday for the opener of a home-and-home series against the Buffalo Sabres.

“We believe he is a solid goalie. I think the game he played against Tampa is a perfect example of what he’s capable of,” coach Mike Sullivan said of the 22-year-old Jarry, a second-round pick of the 2013 draft. “Tristan is going to have to make timely saves for us game in and game out. We believe he can do that.” Belief may be in short supply in Western New York, as the Sabres have been shut out in back-to-back encounters, have lost nine of 10 overall and have seen their 30th-ranked power play go 0-for-18 in the last seven contests. “We have to have some attitude when we start the game,” Buffalo coach Phil Housley said. “This is our home rink. We’ve got to get out and establish a forecheck, show more emotion on the ice.”

Buffalo was a 2-0 loser in its last match at home against the Lightning. They lost as favorites, while the total score of 2 made winners of UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Pittsburgh was a 5-4 winner at home against the Flyers. Bettors on Pittsburgh at -140 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
