Around The League and Elsewhere:

Buffalo players made it clear they were confident in their ability to get to the net and pressure the Canadiens’ defence as necessary. (It should be noted they put P.K. Subban in a different category, saying his only issue was "trying to do too much.") Montreal also did a nice job with Connor McDavid, who takes half of his shots from in tight and doesn’t miss the net often. He did not have a shot on goal from the slot that game.
