The Buffalo Sabres are coming off of a triumphant win, but will momentum be enough to defeat the Boston Bruins?

This will be a tough one for the young Sabres. The Bruins are ranked sixth over all in the league and first in the Atlantic Division. Whereas the Sabres are dead last in the NHL.

The Buffalo Sabres pulled off a win against the Winnipeg Jets in the last game, with a final score of 4-2. Scoring four goals in one game is huge for this team who has average 1.5 goals per game this season.

Head-coach, Ted Nolan, is sticking with a similar game strategy to Tuesday’s victory.

“The lines will be the same as last time,” stated Nolan. “We need four lines to play with high energy,” he continued at this morning’s press conference. “Ennis and Moulson seem to be clicking well together.”

The decision to play John Scott will be made at game time.

The Bruins’ last ten record is 7-3-0 as opposed to the Sabres’ which is 3-5-2. The Boston lineup will be intimidating.

Some Bruin’s players to watch for are left wings Milan Lucic, 17, who has 24 points this season and Brad Marchand, 63.

“Brad is a perfect Boston Bruin,” stated Nolan. “He’s the type of player you want on your team, and the type of player you don’t want to play against.”
