Forward Luke Adam started training camp fighting for a spot on the roster and managed to make the team when veteran center Jochen Hecht went down with an injury. He moved up the depth chart and has been centering a line of Jason Pominville and Thomas Vanek since the season kicked off. Picking up his third goal of the year in Pittsburgh this past Saturday, Adam has found chemistry with his line-mates and hopes to keep generating offense tonight when the Sabres take on the Canadiens in Montreal.
The team skated this morning at the Bell Centre in preparation for the game and with Montreal still struggling to find their identity Buffalo can jump out and take a quick lead in the Northeast Division. Goaltender Ryan Miller knows exactly what it takes to beat the Canadiens. The goalkeeper is 19-8-5 in 32 games against the Canadiens and looks for his 20th win tonight.
“They’re a division rival, and I want to beat everyone I can” Goaltender Ryan Miller on playing the Canadiens.
