The Sabres have ‘struggled’ recently losing 2 of their last 3 games and 1 loss being to the second last Panthers in Florida.
Don’t think for a second the Sabres aren’t still as dangerous as they really are.
The rested Sabres should come out flying and skating as they always do and be very prepared for the Canadiens who have accumulated 3 points out of a possible 6 thus far.
When Montreal plays to their potential and Buffalo to theirs, they are arguably the two quickest teams and an excellent game is always the result.
If the Canadiens don’t go down early it could go the distance and potentially be another OT/Shootout finish.
A win can put the Canadiens 6 points shy of the Northeast and Conference lead.
