Our long lost friend Sammy decided to start scoring in a game none other than against Montreal who, consequently, lost to Carolina yesterday. So the moment is ripe to gain some separation between us and Habs/Buffalo/RoW. So skate and win!

My bold prediction, well... not that bold.... Bergy and Kessell on the board tonight. Bergy is due, and Kessell needs to catch up to Hossa or Coach Parker loses his bet.

Reason enough!

Pretty psyched for this game, should be a good one. Buffalo has some key guys out by the looks of it, so hopefully the B's can take advantage.

This would be a big win, especially with the Montreal game coming up on Saturday. We need to win as many divisional games as possible.

True but if any goaltender is capable of stealing a game for his team, it is Ryan Miller.
Bruins can't take anything for granted there.

Did they have practice yesterday? They looked absolutely exhausted in the 3rd on Monday.

definetly need to jump on buffalo now while they are struggling a bit. a regulation win gives us 5 points to their 2 in the matchups. then we need to do the same to montreal. that gives us an early inside track on the division. (sound early to say that but i expect this to be a very tight division and all points in the division are big points)

I'm hoping for a big win tonight that will help to distance ourselves from the Habs (6 pts) and the Penguins (5 pts), who both lost last night.

I'm hoping we can keep pace with the NY Rangers for the top seed and distance ourselves in the division early so that we have room for mistakes when the going gets tough.

Big BIG major reminder for tonight. DON'T LOOK PAST THIS GAME TO THE GAME AGAINST THE SCABS ON SATURDAY. Or we'll get our butts handed to us. Also, if I manage to listen online tonight, please PLEASE don't let it be the Buffalo feed or the computer may yet go out the window.

He has also shown he can look like Blaine Lacher out there more often than not this year. The Sabres know 2 things, hard work and skating, our boys need to keep moving all night, and shoot from anywhere with a man constantly in the face of Miller.

4-2 B`s
Bergy/Kobi/Wheeler and Ax with the markers tonight.

You're allowed to look past games when you're a fan. Haha. I would be concerned if the players were looking past it. But I think Julien has them in the state of mind.

I'll be there tonight cheering on the boys.

It is so great that the Bruins are getting some of these division games in while they are white hot. Also great that the division games are down this year. I felt like they only played teams in their division last year and it got boring. Anyway great time for these games. You would rather be playing like the Bruins than like the Sabres going into some division games.

Tallinder is still in. We can count on him peeling away from the boards every time Lucic is on the ice. Guaranteed scoring chance right there

Should be a fun, but tight game like the last 2 games both teams faced each other.

My oh my, the habs fans on the Montreal board are afraid of the Bruins....this early in the season. Am I dreaming? They are already marking a loss to the Bruins this saturday. Say what?? When was the last time Habs fans were afraid to face the Bruins?
