There will be a few roster changes tonight, especially due to the injuries that both Travis Moen and Dale Weise received last night. Lars Eller is expected to slot back into the lineup, and it was announced that Jarred Tinordi will take over Francis Bouillon's place. Ryan White also gets the call, due to the aforementioned injuries.
Matt Hackett gets the start for the Sabres, only his second in a Buffalo uniform. If that name sounds familiar, it's because Matt is former Habs goalie Jeff Hackett's nephew.
Buffalo's numbers this year are appalling, and they were flat out dominated the last time they faced the Habs. For Montreal's sake let's hope the trend continues.
