Coyotes-Sabres Preview

(AP) -- The teams with the worst records in the NHL teams meet twice in the next five days, and it's hard to ignore the likelihood that these matchups will determine the fates of Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel.

Those prospects are expected to be taken at the top of the draft and could end up playing for the Buffalo Sabres and Arizona Coyotes, who meet at the First Niagara Center on Thursday night.

Buffalo (20-46-7) has a league-low 47 points and Arizona (22-44-8) has 52, with the only thing on the line this season being draft position. That's pretty important with McDavid and Eichel - players seen by many as potential franchise cornerstones - being the consensus top picks.
