WHITE HOT Ben Burns was a SWEET 6-1 Thursday, narrowly missing his second 7-0 SWEEP in three days. Including his Super Bowl side & total winners, he's now a REMARKABLE 28-6 since Saturday. Dime players have BANKED BETTER THAN $20K in those six days alone. All signs point to more of the same Friday. Grab your all-sports pass today & ride the wave!
The road team has won both meetings this season and the visitors figure to have the advantage again this evening.
Off three straight victories, the Canadiens have seemingly turned the corner. They've outscored those opponent by an 11-4 margin, most recently a 4-2 win over Tampa. Fans in Montreal can breathe again.
Buffalo, on the other hand, has gone the other way. I played against the Sabres last night and they were routed 5-1 by the Flyers. They've now dropped four straight, surrendering 12 goals in their last two games.
While the Sabres will be playing their second game in two days and third in the past four, the Habs have had the past two days off. That said, the Canadiens, 45-29 (+13.6) the last couple of seasons after scoring four or more goals in their previous game, should have the fresher legs.
That's the opposite scheduling setup from when the teams just faced each other at Montreal on 2/3, a 4-2 win for the Sabres. For that game, Montreal was coming off a loss at Philadelphia the previous night (just as Buffalo is here) while the Sabres had the night off. Consider Montreal.
