BUFFALO SABRES (32-35-12) vs. Montreal Canadiens (46-24-9)
Coverage begins at 7 PM on MSG-B
The Sabres play host to the newly crowned Atlantic Division winners.
Jack Eichel takes full responsibility in the Sabres loss to Toronto, stating he must play and execute better in order for his team to be better positioned.
“We didn’t play well. Myself, I wasn’t very good. I’ve got to be better. I’m supposed to be a leader on this team. It’s unfortunate; these are games that are real easy to get up for, especially playing Toronto. We had an opportunity to play spoiler there. For the most part, we’ve played them pretty well this year. More than anything, it’s a bit frustrating.”
Sabres captain Brian Gionta skated for the Canadiens from 2009-2014, scoring 173 points in 303 games. He also served as the team’s captain from 2010-2014
