A morning skate after an effort like last night’s 3-0 mess in Atlanta probably won’t do a team a lot of good. So the Canadiens have canned their morning session today ahead of tonight’s Bell Centre contest against the Buffalo Sabres, who are coming off a 3-1 home ice win last night over Toronto.
Recent history suggests the Habs are due for a win. After having won four straight, the team has gone loss-win-loss-win-loss in its last five games.
No word yet who plays goal for Buffalo against Montreal’s Carey Price. Ryan Miller, who looked excellent with 35 saves against Toronto last night upon his return from a two-game groin injury, would bring a 17-7-5 lifetime record vs. the Habs into the game.
