The Buffalo Sabres are on their way to the playoffs, but it is still a mystery as to which team they will play in the first round.
Buffalo has been on a roll as of late and is 10-3-1 in its last 14 games. Head coach Lindy Ruff is confident that the Sabres can continue their winning ways by using the team’s depth as its main weapon.
“We look at all lines as lines that should be able to produce,” Ruff told the Associated Press Wednesday night after the Sabres 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers.
As of now, the Sabres are in second place in the Eastern Conference and would be playing against the Boston Bruins in the first round, but there are still three other possibilities—the Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, and Montreal Canadiens could all end up playing Buffalo in the playoffs’ opening round.
Let’s take a look at how the Sabres would fair against their potential opponents.
