Montreal Canadiens @ Buffalo 04/12/06

(http://tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=162286&hubname=nhl )
(Sports Network) - The Montreal Canadiens try take one more step towards a postseason berth tonight when they visit the Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena.

You can watch the game live on the NHL on TSN at 7pm et/4pm pt.

With 91 points, the Canadiens sit seventh in the Eastern Conference -- four behind No. 6 New Jersey and two ahead of eighth-place Tampa Bay. Montreal is six points up on ninth-place Atlanta, which has four games left.

The Habs have won nine of their last 10 games, including Monday's 3-2 win over visiting Ottawa. Richard Zednik's goal midway through the third period lifted Montreal.

David Aebischer made 35 saves in the win, while Chris Higgins and Sheldon Souray scored the other goals for the Canadiens. Higgins has tallied a goal in each of the last four games.





Zednik's third-period heroics came after he had been a healthy scratch for the previous three contests. He had not tallied a goal in the prior 13 matches in which he had played.

Montreal will visit Boston on Thursday.

Buffalo, meanwhile, has won three of its last four tilts and is close to locking up fourth place in the Eastern Conference. The Sabres, with 102 points, are five points ahead of No. 6 Philadelphia, which has four games left.

The Sabres are still mathematically alive for the Northeast Division title, but it's all but impossible they can make up an eight point deficit with four games remaining. A Buffalo loss tonight would secure the division crown for Ottawa.

On Saturday, Tim Connolly tallied two goals and an assist as the Sabres cruised past the Senators, 6-2, at Scotiabank Place.

Chris Drury, Taylor Pyatt, Jay McKee and Dmitri Kalinin all lit the lamp for the Sabres, while Ryan Miller allowed only two goals on 34 shots in the win.

The Sabres will visit Montreal on Saturday.

Buffalo and Montreal have split three meetings this season.

Atlanta and Toronto won again yesterday nite !

The Habs must win at least one and tie another to make it. Won't be easy against Buffalo and NJ (3 games).

I still have nightmares of seeing TO in playoffs.

Anyone know who is starting tonight. I hope Abby gets the start tonight, and Huet tomorrow.

So are Montreal.

I agree, though. I don't see us grabbing sixth, but it could happen. A win tonight would make me happy.

This will be a tough one, the Sabres have ridiculously balanced scoring so it will be difficult to shut down their offence. Their goaltending is also stellar, although I hope we see Miller instead of Biron (who always seems to play well against the Habs). The Canadiens need a quick start and they have to play disciplined (absolutely no hooking - a few Sabres tend to embellish)

Hard one to predict. Our defense has been very sloppy the last 3 games or so, but we've gotten away with it for the most part. Hopefully Gainey can lock it down again and get them to play a simple game.

I'll have to go with Buffalo in this one because of that and because the Sabres are finding their game again.

3-2 Buffalo in OT

Should be a tight one. The key is to shut down the Briere line.


4-2 Habs with an empty netter

If our power play can score a couple goals here and there we should be fine. 5 on 5 goal would be a bonus.

3-2

as i was looking over the NHL's standings, it would appear that one point tonight and we clinch!

Habs = 91 pts 3 games left to play
ATL = 85 pts 3 games left to play

ATL max pts = 91

Let's clinch this one baby!

Even with a win tonight we can't clinch. But it would bring the magic number to 1.
