The Canadiens have lost two in a row to the Stars and Wild to split a four-game homestand. Rookie forward Juraj Slafkovsky remains out while dealing with an upper-body injury. The top line of Nick Suzuki, Cole Caufield and Sean Monahan has combined for 10 goals and eight assists this season, nearly half of the Habs’ point production.
The Sabres finally seem to be turning things around at 4-2-0 to start the campaign. Buffalo returns home after a successful swing in Western Canada, which included wins over the Oilers, Flames and Canucks. The Sabres laid an egg against the Kraken their last game in a 5-1 loss. Alex Tuch leads the team with six goals this season while Rasmus Dahlin has nine points (five goals) in six games.
