I don’t like the looks of this.
Montreal is in Buffalo tonight to take on the Sabres, and just our luck, the Buffalonians have been mostly terrible so far this season which means they may look like world-beaters when they take on the Habs.
The Sabres are sitting last in the east with 8 points (3-8-2), their penalty killing is dismal, their 43 goals-against is in the bottom five or so in the league, goalie Ryan Miller is day-to-day, veterans like Tim Connelly and Tomas Vanek aren’t doing as well as Buffalo fans want, and all is not well in the land of Buffalo wings.
Who will budge first? The team (Montreal) with the dismal power play, or the team (Buffalo) with the dismal penalty killing? And about the scoring and the goalkeeping and breaking-out-of-personal-slumps, and all that jazz?
So many questions to be answered when the puck drops.
