LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A game between the top two teams in the weekly Associated Press poll doesn't happen all the time, but it is happening tonight.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Forward Nicolas Deslauriers (duh-lohr-ee-AY') of the Buffalo Sabres is going to miss between three and five weeks with a lower body injury. He suffered the injury in Saturday's loss to the Red Wings.
