Sabres, Canadiens seeking late-season spark

The clock is ticking on the respective seasons of the Montreal Canadiens and the Buffalo Sabres, and there's precious little time to spare.

The Canadiens (31-31-9, 71 points) and Sabres (30-31-8, 68 points) will look to provide a jolt to their flickering postseason aspirations at the other's expense on Thursday when the Atlantic Division rivals meet in Montreal.

The sputtering Canadiens haven't helped themselves after dropping three in a row and 10 of their past 14 games (4-8-2). Montreal resides 10 points in back of Toronto for third place in the division as well as 10 in back of Carolina and Columbus for the Eastern Conference wild-card spots.
