Top Line Looks To Stay Red Hot In Buffalo

Published December 19, 2017 at 2:16 PM

The Bruins are right back at it tonight in Buffalo after a 7-2 beat down of the Columbus Blue Jackets last night.

This is the second of four meetings between these two teams.  The Sabres erased a 4-1 second period deficit to win 5-4 in overtime back on October 21.  The Bruins got two goals apiece from David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand that night, who enter tonight with a 12-game and nine-game point streak respectively.  Tonight's starting goaltender Anton Khudobin made 37 saves in the losing effort.

The Bruins did not hold a morning skate after playing last night so we will not know the exact lineup until the pregame skate.  We do know that David Krejci did not make the trip to Buffalo and will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy did not rule out defenseman Adam McQuaid for this game yesterday, but considering he has yet to be removed from injured reserve at the time of writing, we will assume he is out again.

The Bruins only have one regulation loss to the Sabres in their last 16 meeting and have a 135-110-29-12 record in the all-time series.
