The Red Wings are currently 4-4-1. They are coming from quite a bad loss. This was a 4-1 loss to the Canucks on Sunday. The Sabres haven’t had the best form, but the Red Wings can not let the Sabres take advantage of their low morale. The Sabres are just coming from a win, so both teams are in two completely different mindsets. The coach clearly isn’t happy with the team, and cancelled Mondays practice to focus on video footage. There is a clearly a lot of ground that still needs to be covered so early into the season. However, the Red Wings have a rich history and good players, and they are more than capable of taking the win here with no issues.
The Sabres had a terrible start. Losing a shocking 7 of their eight games. They bounced back in a close game with the Bruins, winning 5-4. They will hope that this is the start of a good run, and they will look to use the Bruins win as a momentum boost and possible game changer against the Red Wings. They’re coming against a big team, with big players. This game will not be a walk in the park, however, the Sabres looked good in the Bruins game. Let’s not ignore the defensive issues, but they closed a 3 goal deficit to come back and win the game, which shows how much quality they have.
