The NHL brings more action today as the Montreal Canadiens will clash with the Buffalo Sabres.
Both sides missed the playoffs last season and they will be aiming to get back into the postseason contest this year.
Montreal Canadiens Form
The Canadiens managed to surprise many and to beat the Maple Leafs. Moreover, they have a talented team this year and there is more to come from them. However, at the moment Montreal is tied for eighth in the league in scoring as they put up four goals a night so far this year. The Canadiens are tied for 22nd in the league by giving up four goals per contest this season. Montreal also has Max Domi, Artturi Lehkonen and Brendan Gallagher and these players will be the core of this team this season.
Buffalo Sabres Form
The Sabres have some good potential in the opening two games of the season. Moreover, they managed to score 10 goals in those two wins against Pittsburgh and New Jersey. However, that did not last long as they suffered a defeat in the game against the Blue Jackets.
Also, this team will try to improve this season as their offence was at 2.70 goals per game last year. The Sabres were the 16th team when it comes to powerplay conversion (19.5%), while Montreal was the 13th in penalty kill percentage.
The Sabres are playing well at the moment and they have a good chance in this game. On the other side, the Canadiens away form is not good at the moment as they suffered in this early stage.
Also, the Sabres have a good record against Price and that will give them confidence heading into this game.
Therefore, I pick Buffalo to win this one
