This will be a very tough game for the Habs.The Sabres have a very good team and a coach who knows how to get the very best out of his players. Price will need to have a great game for the Habs to win tonight.

Deja vu. Replace Sabres with Canucks and this was the exact feeling in the GDT last year, before the Habs went on to beat the Canucks 2-0.

Sabres-Habs games are usually fun to watch, so I'm psyched. That and I get to watch it on TV with buddies here... something that doesn't happen too often for me being a Sabres fan living on the south shore of Montreal.
I also think these games are super hard to predict, and it really can go either way. Looking at tonight's lineups... I think we can all agree that the paper pick has to be the Sabres as the favorites to win it, but we really never know. Division rivals, playing at the Centre Bell... both Price and Miller have shown their amazing talent, as well as their occasional brain farts so far... so I think a lot of it depends on which one of each shows up tonight. We know both can steal games.
Just want to say that this a beautiful GDT! Amazing job, Habsman.
Also, I've felt that since the lockout our two teams usually combine for some pretty exciting games, no matter who has the better team that year. So anything can happen tonight. I'm predicting a 3-2 OT winner, but no idea who will take the W. Here's to a good game tonight, and no injuries.
The Bell Centre used to be such a tough, imposing building for the visitors to win in.
Now what happens? They score 9 goals in two games and we are 0-2, soon to be 0-3 in about 8 hours time.
This is what happens when you have lifeless ghosts running your team in Martin/Gauthier. Eventually the team takes the team takes the identity of their coach. Which, in our case, is a lifeless, passive, Jacques Martin.
