The second day of the NHL takes place on Thursday night with eight games. One of those games is a showdown at the KeyBank Center when the Montreal Canadiens come to town to take on the Buffalo Sabres.
The two teams split the four game series last year.
After a disappointing first round exit last season the Montreal Canadiens will look to make the playoffs again this year, but go deeper this time.
The team is basically the same team as last year, but they did upgrade a little bit in the scoring and defensive department.
In this game it starts and ends with Carey Price who is still one of the best goaltenders in hockey. He has bailed his team out a lot and if this team struggles to score he might have to do that again in this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Buffalo Sabres who really did a complete 180 in the off season. After another year struggling last year they made all kinds of changes in the off season.
Not only did they change their general manager and head coach they also made a couple of trades.
They acquired Jason Pomminville from the Minnesota Wild for Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno.
To win this game the offense needs to get going early. They need to try and find a way to put pressure on Carey Price early on in this game.
