Habs Fall To Sabres, Halpern Returns, Prospect Roundup And More...

Good Afternoon Addicts!

Michael Ryder notched his 11th point in as many games
since joining the Habs in last nights loss to Buffalo.
 The Buffalo Sabres defeated the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 last night, handing the Habs their second regulation time loss in 20 games. Ryan Miller played outstanding between the pipes for Buffalo turning aside 39 of the 40 shots fired at him earning the games first star.

With Toronto edging the Bruins 3-2, Montreal lost a quality chance to increase their lead in the standings over Boston.

Thomas Vanek scored both goals for the Sabres after missing one game due to a shot he blocked in the previous game against the Habs. Michael Ryder put Montreal on the board with his tenth goal of the season, his fourth as a Hab and his first at the Bell Center.

Montreal has a tough back to back series coming up as they will face the Penguins and Bruins on Tuesday and Wednesday night. It's the second time the Canadiens will face the two Eastern Conference powerhouses in back to back games.

In early March the Habs fell 7-6 in overtime against the Pens before beating the Bruins 4-3 the following night.
