Hockey Night Live Blog: Bruins vs. Sabres
Buffalo comes in undefeated in Regulation at 4-0-1 while the Bruins come in at 2-1-2 having lost in a shootout to the Pens[sic] last night in their home opener. The Sabres are still without centers Paul Gaustad, Tim Connolly (nothing new there) and Jochen Hecht. Buffalo is perfect on the PK through 5 games and the PP is clicking at nearly 25%. Thomas Vanek is off to a silly good start to this season having potted 7 goals in 5 games, 2 of them short-handed.
Marc Savard and Phil Kessel lead the Broons with 5 goals each. P.J. Axelsson is day-to-day with muscle spasms. This is the first of 6 meetings between these two teams this season.
So, after the jump let's put on our partisan hats and ignore the rest of the world for a couple of hours.
