Sabres win 3-1 (EN)

A great effort by our kids against an NHL team.

Beaulieu was terrific. I liked Gallagher, Dumont and DeSimone too. D played really well.

Overall, a much better effort and team then last night's.

Andreas Engqvist & Aaron Palushaj are not cutting themselves any favors...they looked absolutely invisible for the second night in a row.

I'd rather have a crash and bang player like Gabriel Dumont who will give us a spark when in need of one.

On a side note, Spacek had a decent game.

I noticed Engqvist. Not as much as Gallagher and Dumont, though. However, I only caught the 3rd period.

I thought the game was a good effort from some young guys. Pacs looks ok. We actually could have won this game and the Sabres should have a look in the mirror. Those guys think they are gonna make the playoffs? They barely got by an mostly AHL team with both their NHL goalies!

Gallagher looked good in the third, Beaulieu looked good as well. We have some great prospects coming up in the next couple years.

Dumont played very well and I agree about Palushaj and Engqvist, they are going to make it easy for Martin to keep Blunden

I really like Gallagher tonight. Dumont was good as well. Beaulieu was playing with amazing confidence. The Present and the Future is bright in Montreal !

Beaulieu and Gallagher looked really good. Gotta feel good about those two in the system. Subban looked like his usual good self, and glad to see Pacioretty go to the dirty areas with no hesitation, that is a big move ahead for him to get his game back to where it was.

Budaj played well, should be a better back up for Montreal in regards to being able to play him in back to back situations with Price and good teams.

Spacek looked faster to me out there, Gorges knee looks fine too.

Darche and DD seemed fine.

Palushaj looks to be Hamilton bound with back to back bad games.

Subban singled out Beaulieu and Gallagher for high praise after the game.

Yeah, Dumont was solid this game. Impressed me far more than Engvist. Although Engvist played better tonight than he did last night, he has no offensive presence at all. I was hoping for more from him.

Palushaj was simply invisible.

DeSimone should get another game.

Lack of depth at forward will be the team's achilles heel this season.

PK looked terrific, except for that fist pump, reminds me too much of Briere!

To say Brendan Gallagher was smiling from ear to ear in room after the game would be an understatement.

I think all three of these guys will be NHL players. Avtsin might make it as well but he'll need another year. Dumont is very close to the NHL if he plays as he did tonight, he looked better than Palushaj. Gallagher has sick hands and is very shifty, the Sabre defense were having trouble with him.

I agree about Palushaj but Engqvist's ability to play center gives him a slight edge on Blunden. Remember, we're not looking for an offensive threat on the 4th line. Martin is looking for defensive awareness more than anything else, so even if he's not that physical, he still might make the team, or at least be ahead on the depth chart. White centering the 4th line with Moen and Darche makes the most sense to me.

I agree, I mean guys like Gallagher, Bishop, Avtsin, Desimone, plus many others weren't even playing in the NHL last season! Man we're in for a long one, can't believe Geoff Molson is going to ice this team this year, I didn't know half the guys playing!

Amazing effort from our guys, I think thats not the kind of win Lindy Ruff was hoping,, probably wanted his team to destroy our depleted line-up, not only it didnt happen but the Habs could have won this game with a bit of luck.. Thats certainly not a moral victory for them..

IMO Desharnais has gotten some speed and it show. It was the only thing that could have been an obstacle to him in the NHL I would say. But he really worked on it.
