The Pittsburgh Penguins (3-0-2) will try to extend their five-game point streak Saturday night at CONSOL Energy Center against the Buffalo Sabres (2-1-0), the Northeast Division co-leaders.

Evgeni Malkin and Brooks Orpik will sit for the Penguins, who are trying to add to their best start to a campaign since going 7-0-0 to open the 1995 season. Marc-Andre Fleury will start opposite backup Jhonas Enroth, who gets the nod after the Sabres faced the Carolina Hurricanes Friday night, a 4-3 Buffalo loss.

James Neal leads the Penguins with four goals, while Kris Letang leads in assists (5) and points (6).
