Tonight is the biggest night of the year for a Buffalo Sabres team destined to make the playoffs. If they can beat the Montreal Canadiens tonight, they are only three points out of the race, a loss puts them seven points back. Forget three point games meaning anything this time of the year, the four point games are huge for Buffalo right now.
They almost let it slip away the other night against Toronto, but managed to stay ahead of the battling Leafs, a team even I didn’t give enough respect to. Supposed to be sellers awaiting the draft lottery, they have been playing a really good spoiler this year.
Ryan Miller will test his ankle in back to back situations, and hopefully he will be able to withstand. The Sabres have not done well in back to back games so far this year, and will need to change that if they want to make the playoffs.
With all of the rumors going around about people losing their jobs, even one round of the playoffs can give anyone in the organization the light to think that we have the beginnings of something here, but are a long way off from contending for the division title again.
Get pumped up Sabres fans, they need all the help they can get:
