Sharks hope to extend win streak vs. improved Sabres

When the Buffalo Sabres awoke Friday morning, they were perched atop the NHL standings with a sparkling 6-1-1 record.

For a downtrodden organization that has missed the playoffs the last eight seasons, this is a big improvement -- one they hope to improve upon further when they visit the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.

"I think right now we're just enjoying playing the game, the grind of it," goalie Carter Hutton said. "We've got to play in these games. If we want to be a playoff team, if we want to be a winning team, we have to learn how to play in tough situations, tough buildings."
