Don Granato has reiterated his message of playing with confidence as the Sabres navigate their busiest week of the season, a stretch that has opened with three straight losses.
Their next opportunity to right the ship comes tonight against a Canadiens team they already experienced success against, winning 5-1 at KeyBank Center on opening night.
"I felt the last few games there's just an inkling of doubt potentially creeping in and I challenged our guys, there can be no doubt," Granato said. "I don't care what just happened, I don't care what just transpired, because when you have doubt, it looks like you don't work hard anymore. You start hesitating and then it looks like guys aren't working. We cannot have that."
Tickets for tonight are available here.
Coverage on MSG begins at 6:30 p.m. The puck drops at 7.
