After struggling at the beginning of the year the Buffalo Sabres are slowly starting to look like the Sabres of old. Well maybe not quite the Sabres of old, but a team with talent, a team capable of winning and a team that causes pain for the Canadiens.
The Sabres defeated Montreal a week ago and also put the league best Senators down 3-0 in the first period on their way to a 4-2 victory.
They are dangerous right now, and they just happen to be playing a back to back series against Montreal.
Two Divisional “4 point” games, a possible 8 point swing in the standings.
Should the Sabres find a way to beat the Canadiens twice that could slowly start them creeping back into the Division.
The Canadiens on the other hand, have a real chance to put them deep in the cellar while gaining on the Senators who have dropped 3 out of the last 4 games.
Carey Price gets the start tonight in Buffalo.
