Those players with no name did you see how well they played and especially how well they all play the system? I don't know what they do in Rochester but I wish we had the same down there.these guys come in and make an impact right away.

It's going to be real hard tonite

Beleive it or not, the Sabres hate the Leafs as much as the Habs hate the Leafs, so they'll tank the game to night (.... ok, ... I grasping...) ...

Maybe right now,but for all the times we eliminated them in the playoffs,I bet they hate us more in the end.If Toronto never moved to the East,im sure they wouldn't care about them at all

Habs win this one 3-2.

Then they lose tomorrow 4-1 in Boston.

This goes back to last year as well. I think Sabres ownership asked for Friday night games to be played at 8 to try and get a feel of like a Friday night on the town. You know, get out of work, go out for dinner, go to the game and then maybe go out on the town. Attendance hasn't been a problem this year or last year but I think coming out of the lockout they wanted to try something new, something for the fans.

As for the game, I'm expecting a close games just like the other Habs/Sabres games this year. The youngsters in the lineup are playing great, watch for Stafford. Personnally I'm looking forward to seeing Zubrus play.

Habs have to win atleast one during weekend or else they could forget about playoffs. Will be disappointing if we miss playoffs with Souray

Buffalo is awesome, but if the Habs can't beat such an injury-riddled team that is also fighting the flu, there are some big problems.

The Habs need to play with controlled intensity tonight - it scares me that Buffalo has yet to score a powerplay goal against us this year. That could really bite us tonight if we lose our discipline and take too many penalties.

Let's hope for a new trend to begin tonight:

A complete 60 minute effort.

No, it's not an actual rule, it's something they try to adhere by, and I think it's actually 22 or 23 hours. There are lots of 7:30, then 7:00, or 8:00, then 7:00 starts.

Well Montreal's also fighting the flu, but I agree. Still, even this injured Buffalo team is better than Montreal.

I'll post what I posted in the "Scoreboard Watching" thread, since it's GDT-relevant:

"Tonight, one point coupled with a Toronto loss (or two points coupled with a toronto SO/OTL) would officially put us into the 8th playoff spot. By that, I mean even if Toronto wins all their games in hand, we would still make the playoffs. But with one point, if Carolina wins tonight we are in the 9th seed by virtue of the second tiebreaker, as our head-to-head record is 1-3. Without that point, we could be as low as 12th after games in hand are played out (NYR will have 3 games in hand, but only 5 points back, BOS will have 4 games in hand, 7 points back).

What I'm trying to say is that the scores to watch tonight are:

PIT @ CAR 7:00PM
TOR @ NJ 7:30PM"

I don't think so. I could swear I've seen a team play on friday night then turn around to play a saturday matinee. Not often, but I think I've seen it happen.

But, Ill be watching tonite, and pullin for the habs like always, so Im gonna go with 3-2 Habs...with Samsonov gettin the GWG, Im not a fan but he seems to play better when hes got something to prove.

AS of today, these two teams would meet up as #1 - #8 in the playoffs.

Anyone else think we're better off finsihing eighth and facing Buffalo than moving up to seventh and getting NJ? Obviously I'd really like to finish higher than seventh/eighth, but realistically speaking...

Oh, and NO ONE hates the Leafs as much as the Habs and their fans

Remember when we beat Buffalo and lost to Philly in back-to-back games.. Most likely the same scenario this weekend.
