Your Buffalo Sabres have opened the season with a 3 game point streak and are only behind the undefeated Bruins, Hurricanes and the team from Washington in points in the Eastern Conference. Things to be optimistic about this team are 5 players in the top 46 in scoring (without Jack on the list), 5th in the league in goals per game, 1st in power play goals and 2 players in the top 10 in +/-.  We should see a very fast paced game today so it should be a fun game to watch. ERod is most likely taking the injured Sheary's spot on the 3rd line which hopefully gives that line a boost.

CANADIENS at SABRES

  • This is the first of four meetings between the Sabres and Canadiens this season.
  • Last meeting: Montreal defeated Buffalo 7-4 in Montreal on March 23.
  • Next meeting: Thursday, Jan. 30 in Buffalo
  • The Sabres are 4-4-2 in their last 10 games vs. the Canadiens; 5-3-2 at home.
  • This is the 284th game all-time between Buffalo and Montreal; Buffalo has a 129-113-41 series record.
  • The Sabres are 74-40-27 at home against the Canadiens all-time.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

The Sabres are 2-0-1 through three games. It’s the first time Buffalo has started a season with points in three straight games since the team went 4-0-1 through its first five games of the 2009-10 season.

Buffalo is looking to start the season with wins in both of the team’s first two home games for the first time since the 2008-09 season, when they won the first three.

Through three games, the Sabres have already gotten points from 14 different players this season. Rasmus Dahlin (1+4), Victor Olofsson (3+1) and Sam Reinhart (2+2) have all tallied at least a point in each of the team’s first three contests.

The Sabres went 7-4-3 at home against the Atlantic Division last season, including wins against the Canadiens on Oct. 25 and Nov. 23. A win tonight would give the Sabres wins in three straight visits from the Canadiens for the first time since March 12, 2012 to Feb. 7, 2013.

Continuing the 50th Anniversary IMO the greatest Right Wingers in Sabres History: All stats are Sabre records:

Big game against a big divsion rival. Need to bounce back from Monday, especially starting a 3 game home stand. Hopefully our barn can have some level of energy near to opening night. There won't be the pregame stuff to get the fans riled up, so we need a strong start.

I'm back home and back to work today, I'll be trying my best to watch in between dealing with patients. Would love to see a bounce back against a "smaller/less physical" team. 

Also, if we lose, it's proof that I shouldn't come back home ever and that I should immediately be fired and should leave the country 😂😂

If it helps, I don't think it was you who jinxed us, I think it was d4rksabre who didn't keep the superstitious josie wales of this site, who kills everything Sabre, from watching the game like he promised. Or I think he did. If not, rack it up to "I don't think so good anymore" excuse.

Josie didn't watch the game! I was right! Superstition is bunk!

My favourite opponent to see on the schedule. Because Montreal. Because the Canadiens. Because hockey.

Let's go, Buffalo!

Please also: Let's see the Sabres of games 1 and 2, not game 3.

Buffalo needs to go hard on the forecheck. Montreal has a mediocre defense core and they also have some young forwards who you can force into mistakes. It will be interesting to see what Krueger does to keep their feet moving after a lackluster performance in Columbus.

We better dominate this game tonight. I hope somebody launches Domi into the waterfront while we're at it

Barn energy may be dependent upon how many Mo Ray All fans will be in the building.

Yeah. That's always the case with Toronto and to a lesser degree Ottawa too. Probably a few others.

 

I'm sure there are a few others. I'm coming up to Buffalo for the 11/16 game against Ottawa. I'm hoping there won't be too many Sens fans.
