Previous Meetings this year: (2-3-0-0)
Last Game: Mar 24, 2004 - Habs 1, Sabres 2

Preview:

- Last game of the year. Great job by our team that made the playoff when nobody would have bet his salary on it. CJ, and Gainey turned that team around. Sometimes playing like a top 5 NHL team, and other times playing like a poor AHL one. Which one will we see tonight? A win is a must to get on track before the playoffs. I am confident in our chances to win a round or 2 in the post season. Let's cheer for our habs, let the Kovalev awaken !

News, notes and Quotes:

- Some good effort in our last game, but not enough.
- Dagenais is playing tonight.
- Kovalev will stay on the 3rd line.
- the good news is, he will be with Our dear Robin who is back and badly needed.
- Sabres are out of the playoffs, but the Islanders can still reach our 7th place.
- 1 point would be all we need. but noway. tonight we win !

Hab's Injuries:

- Gainey's secret; before playoff time, who really knows what's going on in there?
