Sabres at Canadiens Preview: Buffalo Hopes To Rebound From Poor Back-to-Back Series

Richard Wolowicz

The Sabres have lost six of their last seven games, and now head to second place Montreal to take on the Canadiens. This should go well.

After yet another poor showing in a back-to-back series this weekend, the Sabres seemed to have some frustration bubbling over on Sunday night between Ryan Miller and Patrick Kaleta, stemming from Kaleta's whining about being a healthy scratch against Washington. Will Patty return tonight to bring the "piss and vinegar," as he says, against Montreal?

Story

This is the third meeting between these two teams, with the series being split so far. After taking a day off yesterday in Montreal, it's unknown as of this writing what the Sabres lines will be like. However, it's safe to say that Kaleta should return tonight after the team's poor showing against Washington, and with rookie defenseman Mark Pysyk's impressive debut, I'd expect him to remain in the lineup as well.

Projected Buffalo Lines

Ott - Hodgson - Pominville
Vanek - Ennis - Leino
Foligno - Porter - Flynn
Kaleta - Hecht - Stafford

Ehrhoff - Leopold
Regehr - Myers
Weber - Pysyk

Goal: Jhonas Enroth
