BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) Sabres Head Coach Ralph Krueger announced Thursday morning that Carter Hutton will get the start in goal against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Sabres and Canadiens are tied with 51 points, 10 points out of the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Game time is 7pm at KeyBank Center.
