This will be the second game between the rivals this season, with Montreal winning the first contest 3-1 on Nov. 27. However, Ryan Miller is hopeful that he can help his team can turn things around.
“My job remains the same. I have to respond with a better effort than I had against the Rangers and keep building my game, hopefully in anticipation of putting myself out there for USA Hockey and helping this team get on the right page here,” Miller told Sabres.com after practice Friday at First Niagara Center. “We’re improving in small areas and our games are becoming hockey games now instead of lopsided kind of events. We’re in games and we gotta find ways to win. Hopefully that’s coming.”
The Sabres have been awful this season, to put it bluntly, and nobody is expecting a miracle turnaround. However, hard work and effort in each game is something that is expected, and it's something fans are now getting with Ted Nolan behind the bench.
Montreal comes into tonight's matchup with an 8-1-1 record in their last 10 games. They will hope to build off of their hot streak against a weak Sabres opponent.
Faceoff tonight is scheduled for 7 pm and will be aired on MSG.
