While the Montreal canadiens are still well down in a quagmire, the Sabres of Buffalo are experiencing a revival of life and attempt a final push to avoid another end of season early.
The men of the chief instructor Ralph Krueger has won a third duel in a row and won 5 to 2 in front of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday, which enabled them to bring to 62 total points this season. It is the same crop as the Habs, which, however, has played two parties.
Of course, the Sabres have returned to life, but they are lagging eight points behind the Leafs and the third largest of the atlantic chapter, more accessible to them than either of the two passes for the series in the Association of the Is.
“Each meeting by the end of the campaign will be huge for us,” said captain Jack Eichel to the official website of his team, who scored the decisive goal in the face of the Leafs.
“We begin to find the confidence inside the locker room and I believe that everything stems from there, he added to the daily Buffalo News. You can see that we get the contribution of all in the training. If we continue playing hard constantly and limiting the scoring opportunities of the other club, who knows what will happen? We’re only focused on the next day to try to collect the two points in the standings during our next match.”
Eichel and his teammates want to continue their success on Tuesday, when they visit the Ottawa Senators.
However, a hockey player from the organization has decided to sleep in a separate room, because the Swords were suspended on Monday, the defender Zach Bogosian, who has refused to report it to their club-school of the american League. Demoted to the Americans of Rochester, the veteran could, therefore, see his association with Buffalo come to an end shortly.
Acquired from the Winnipeg Jets through the transaction that sent Evander Kane in the west of the State of New York on February 11, 2015, Bogosian has amassed five points in 19 duels this season, while maintaining a differential of 0.
