The Sabres are in the middle of their seven-game homestand, with two games in as many days. Buffalo and the Detroit Red Wings are scoreless in the opening period.

Casey Mittelstadt nearly gave the game its first score halfway through the first period, but hit the cross bar with his shot attempt. Sam Reinhart was called for the first penalty of the game. He was whistled for a slashing minor that gave Detroit the chance at the man advantage. However, the blue and gold were able to kill off the opportunity without surrendering a goal.
