Game Night: Sabres vs Maple Leafs

1918_buffalo_sabres_logo_edited3Lucky number 7.  That is how many points the Sabres need to catch the Montreal Canadiens.  It seems a very large number, however, a win tonight brings you withing 5, and then you play the Canadiens, beat them and the number is 3.  In just two games you have a very interesting playoff race brewing, lose tonight or Saturday, and the mountain may seem insurmountable.
Ryan Miller returns to the crease tonight in the hopes of helping his team limp into the playoffs.  But make one thing for sure, he is no saviour; wanting only to play his game as best as he can.

The Sabres think they can do it – but then again what bubble team is going to admit defeat openly.  Lucky number 7 is all they have to go on.

The Leafs come in tonight with nothing more to play for than the spoiler credit – a team showing that they just may make a decent run next year.
