Game 22 Preview: Bruins @ Buffalo BUFFALO? AGAIN? REALLY?

Nov 26, 2008 7:00 PM ET
On Radio: WBZ
@Buffalo Sabres (9-8-3)

  • Again? This is the 4th game against Buffalo this year. After this, we don't see them until Jan. 3rd, and then not again until the second-to-last game of the season, April 11th. In each game, the home team has won. Games so far:
  • Game 6: 2-2 SO Loss in Buffalo
  • Game 14: 3-1 W in Boston.
  • Game 19: 7-4 W in Boston. Miller got chased from the net.
  • The Bruins are on a 4 game winning streak, including 3 divisional games against the Leafs, Habs, and Sabres.  They also haven't lost in regulation in November...yet.
  • Manny vs. Miller has been the goalie-duel for the last 3 games.  
  • Congrats to Marc Savard for getting first star of the week last week.
  • Will Marco "The German" Sturm ever return?
  • Vanek still has 15 goals, and is still tied for the lead in NHL scoring.
  • Buffalo has cooled down a lot after their hot start. I worry about that happening to the Bruins.
  • NHL Fanhouse:The Bruins are now the measuring stick.
  • Puck the Media doesn't want to see the NHL on ESPN.
  • sees that Savard is a complete player.
  • Matt Porter has an early gift idea.
  • Give thanks for Jack Edwards.

(The other goalie on both lists:  Backstrom from the Wild.  Sick.)
