BUFFALO, N.Y. – Vladislav Kamenev and Patrik Nemeth will, indeed, be in the Avalanche lineup tonight against the 2-1-0 Buffalo Sabres

So, here are the new lines and D pairs:

Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen

Kerfoot-Jost-Wilson

Nieto-Soderberg-Bourque

Kamenev-Compher-Calvert

D

Girard-Johnson

Cole-Barrie

Zadorov-Nemeth

Varlamov in goal

Here’s what coach Jared Bednar wants out of Kamenev: “It’s a good time to give him an opportunity. He played a couple of games over the weekend (for the Eagles – two games, one assist) and practiced with us a couple days. He looks energized and ready to go.”

Bednar just wants Kamenev to be a good defensive player first, then worry about offense after that. He’s a big believer that good defense creates good offense. I remain worried about how the kid will fit in on a fourth line, but we’ll start to see for sure tonight.

Carter Hutton will start in goal for the Sabres, who are trying to win three in a row for the first time in 21 months. Hutton has a .943 saves percentage so far. Johan Larsson returns to the Sabres lineup after missing a couple games to injury.
