After coming up short against one of the NHL's top goalies, the Montreal Canadiens will have to deal with one of the league's leading scorers. The Canadiens will try to bounce back from their first loss in five games Saturday when they host a Buffalo Sabres team looking for its sixth straight win in Montreal. The Canadiens were riding high during a four-game winning streak before Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson denied them their first five-game run in nearly two years in a 5-1 loss Wednesday. Montreal (4-2-0) scored four goals in each game of the streak but couldn't do it again despite getting off 32 shots.

I will call it like it is, Subban is a poor sport, no one wants to watch people flail around on...

The Subbanator returns
