Tonight in Buffalo, Canadians will face invigorated Sabers at the KeyBank Center. They do not have the look of the club that the CH beat 7-4, March 23 last.
See the press briefing of Claude Julien in the video, above.
Undefeated in regulation time with two wins in their first three meetings in 2019-2020, they had the best NHL attack, before Wednesday's clash, with 60% efficiency (six goals on 10 occasions).
According to head coach Claude Julien, the CH players were warned before stepping on the ice.
"Against Toronto, we had three penalties in the offensive zone. These things can come back to haunt us. You have to be careful tonight.
"(The Sabers) have confidence and they are doing well."
The driver of the Tricolore has recognized that indiscipline is an aspect that his men must improve in their game. The concentration on the bench is one of them.
"To be disciplined is one of the facets of our game that we advocate," he hinted. In two games, we had twice too many players on the ice. The concentration on the bench is important.
"We see that at the beginning of the season, we are a little rusty on this side."
