Guest Posted February 3, 2015 Report Share Posted February 3, 2015 @ PREVIEW The Canadiens, who were given the day off on Monday, are one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference and the Buffalo Sabres have the worst record in the NHL and have lost their last 14 games. Mismatch, right? Not necessarily, says the Canadiens’ Tomas Plekanec, who notes that Buffalo has had the edge over Montreal this season, taking five of a possible six points against the Canadiens. The Canadiens were 2-1 winners in a shootout in Buffalo on Nov. 5, but the Sabres posted back-to-back victories on Nov. 28-29, winning 2-1 in Buffalo and 4-3 in overtime at the Bell Centre. WHO'S HOT? INJURY UPDATE Eller said he expects to play, but that decision is on hold until Tuesday’s morning skate. P.A. Parenteau is still out with a concussion, but says he’ll resume skating this week. For the Sabres, Mike Foligno (hand) and Cody McCormick (blood clot) are on the injured-reserve list, while goaltender Michal Neuvirth is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. CALL UP The Canadiens announced Monday afternoon that they have called up Jacob de la Rose from the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs. In 37 games with Hamilton, the 19-year-old has six goals, five assists and 11 penalty minutes. He was captain of Team Sweden at this year’s World Junior Hockey Championship. The Canadiens selected him in the second round (34th overall) at the 2013 NHL entry draft. TRAP GAME??? LET'S HOPE NOT Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
