Season Series 1-1-1

It's always fun when the Sabres and Habs meet but tonight the game has more meaning. It is a game that may help determine playoff seed at the end of the season.

Buffalo only beat the Canadiens once this season and that game was opening night back in October. This is a game the Sabres need to win and they have an opportunity because the Canadiens have been struggling.

The Sabres would be crazy to play Lalime tonight because Miller has not allowed a goal and 126:52. I would expect Price to be in goal for the Habs.

Don't forget to put in your SPG picks. There is still an opportunity for one lucky fan to win a Sabres jersey at the end of the season.
