wont be easy but I would love for us to leave Buffalo with a W. it would give the team much more confidence then they already have.
I hope we at least put up a good fight!

I love the way our team plays. If everything goes well, we could win this one.
I feel a great game from Bonk Perez and Johnson. They will stop the damage and our other lines will score some goals.


GO HABS GO

You'd think we'd eventually have to win against Buffalo... Hope it's tomorrow.

Since 99-00 we haven't done too well against the Sabres.

W-L-T-OTL-SL
13-20-0-3-1

Our record in Buffalo is a bit worse

6-10-0-1-1

Whatever, I'm confident. Wonder what Nostraniinimaa has to say about this one?

Measuring stick game...quarter pole, and they are playing the best team in the league at this point...should be a big game for the Habs...let's hope Carbo has them coming out of the gate with some gusto! 3-2 Habs...Kovy has another good game...

Habs have yet to win 3 in a row this year.
Habs have yet to lose 2 in a row this year.
Habs have not played well in game two of back-to-back games.
Habs play the Flyers Saturday.

I'm going with back-to-back wins.

Wow, and I though we started out GDT's early .

Can someone fill in who would be your missing guys in this line up? I'm working on the Sabre's GDT right now.

well right now..Carbo hasn't made a choice yet, I think we might play 7 D tomorrow so the lineup you see is intact.

I love it when these two teams play (when we are playing well that is). Sabres were sloppy against Toronto, so I think we can win this one.

I'll go with 4-3 Mtl in a shootout with Huet standing on his head.

MEN OF LITTLE FAITH, ALL OF YOU!!!

I'd NEVER bet against the Habs.

Even though I did last night when talking about this game nah. But forgive me Rocket for I have sinned: ALL IN on the Habs.

Let's say, 4-3, you guys. But I'm scared poo-less of the Sabres, and I'm fearless man, you guys.

Go Habs, I'll be sitting on my couch with some popcorn watching the action. It'll be exciting that's for sure!

The last Montreal/Buffalo game I was in the building for, Sabres win in a shootout.
I don't see it being any different for this one.
