I agree, this Sabres team is not all that impressive.
They don;t dominate physically or even offensively. What they do very well is trap and are very patient. They play Ruff's system and are very disiplined.

All that being said, the end result is they win games and are successful!

Got to give them their due.

Sounds like certain someone is jealous of Sabres' success this season.

Although I like Paciorety, Plekanec has not been the same in his last two games without A. Kostitsyn at his side. Just goes to prove that if you're not a Malkin or Crosby type player, most centres in this league need two scoring wingers to be successful.

Hopefully the brothers K will be back for Washington.
I like wide open hockey with a ton of scoring chances and this was far from that...When the Sabres scored they sat on the lead and didn't give the Habs much room..It is effective hockey but to me boring as hell to watch..

I don't get how Habs fans, who see the Sabres enough can think they suck or are lucky or whatever crap has been suggested about them in this thread.

Sure, they are not the most talented bunch but they play a great system that matches all of their strength's and weaknesses. They are patient and tenacious and make you pay for your mistakes. It's not the prettiest or most exciting but it works most of the time and I would love to trade places with them in the standings.

Gomez had more passes intercepted than Jake Cutler.

And would it kill someone to stand in front of the net?

Same ol, same ol...

I take it you didn't watch the previous two Sabres games? The high-scoring affairs in which Buffalo fell behind 3-0 and stormed back in the 3rd to win 4-3 both times?

If you only watch Buffalo when they're playing the Habs, you're not getting the complete picture. Yes, all the Buffalo-Montreal games so far have been tight, low-scoring affairs. But that's hardly the way all (or even most) of Buffalo's games have been.

Come back when Montreal loses by more than one goal and loses more than 2 in their last 8.

Miller is their key, you can't disagree

Listen I'm not saying the Sabres are a bad team, they are better than the Habs that's for sure! just saying that the rely way too much on Miller (like we did with Theodore back in the early 2000's) and, god forbid, Miller is out for 20-30 games it's not your 18th overall offense with no scorer over 11 goals that will suddenly carry the team and it's not Lalime either!

You play a great system (similar to NJ) but you don't have a Elias or Parise to count on...And you are right, the Sabres are not always a boring team (like the Devils are not anymore) and yes when down 0-3 and have nothing to lose you can open the game up if needed.

The Habs have been mediocre since 1993 so that's hardly earth shattering news but thanks for reminding us...

Montreal really missed Kostitsyn. Pacioretty was awful on the 1st line. Hopefully he's back Tuesday.

Same here, I started playing Rock Band during the second intermission and never turned the game back on.

Well said. I would actually say the Habs do have a very equal team to Buffalo besides all-world goalie Ryan Miller. Both Buffalo and Montreal's top 6 is very similar, and their defense is average beyond Myers, just as we are without Markov.

You cannot downplay Ryan Miller's play this year, it's the same type of play that Tim Thomas displayed last year with the Bruins. He gives his team a chance to win every single game, FFS he's won almost every single game for the Sabres - they've only won THREE games without him in nets, and one of those he started.
