Game 14 Preview: Buffalo @ Bruins SOLDIER NIGHT

Nov 8, 2008 7:00 PM ET
On the Radio: WBZ 1030
vs. Buffalo Sabres (8-2-3)
  • Tonight is Soldier giveaway night. Aaron Ward gave away 300. Don't get into any fights, folks. These guys have a hard enough time putting their lives on the line.
  • Kobasew is a gametime decision.
  • Bergeron was given the day off in practice because he just works so hard anyways.
  • Buffalo is currently tops in the division. Boston can tie them with a regulation win.
  • It's a good thing we didn't play last night: Montreal lost to Columbus, Buffalo lost to Atlanta, Ottawa lost to Carolina.
  • We've played them once before. Lost on Oct 21st in the Shootout. Ryan Miller stole that game.
  • After scoring the first goal in the game against Toronto, Big Money Wides is settling in.
