Prediction

The Sabres are having a great start of the season winning 6 of their first 8 games and have been playing great offense averaging 4.3 goals per game this season. The Canadiens have won 7 of their first 10 games this season but they have had some tough games lately as they have won their last 3 games in overtime. The Sabres have an extra day of rest and have been on fire offensively so I'll give it a shot with them to won this game.
