Clock Ticking on Habs' Playoff Chances

Alex Galchenyuk Montreal Canadiens NHL

The Montreal Canadiens began life after the All-Star break the same way as they entered it: by losing. They’ve now got to put Tuesday’s loss behind them as they entertain the Buffalo Sabres Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Canadiens are 1-6 SU in their last seven games following a loss in their previous game.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Montreal’s last nine games at home.
  • The Sabres are 1-4 SU in their last five games against teams from the Atlantic Division.

Wayne Simmonds notched a pair of goals and Jakub Voracek tallied three assists as the Philadelphia Flyers downed the Habs 4-2 Tuesday. To add insult to injury, the Flyers leapfrogged the Canadiens in the Eastern standings. Montreal now sits 12th in the standings and is in danger of being passed by the Ottawa Senators.

The Sabres could be the team that fuels a resurgence in Montreal, however. The two have met once this season and the Canadiens put up their best offensive effort of the season, winning 7-2 back on October 23. Defenseman Andrei Makrov recorded one goal and four assists in that game and it was actually one of Mike Condon’s rare starts while Carey Price was healthy, though early reports name Ben Scrivens as Montreal’s starter between the pipes Wednesday.

In addition to that loss back in October, the Sabres have gone just 3-7 SU in their 10 games against the Canadiens.

The clock is ticking on the Canadiens’ season, so if they want the playoffs to be a real possibility, they’ll have to get results sooner rather than later and the Sabres could be the team that is the opponent they need to face to their turnaround.
