The Sabres will debut new lines tonight with Thomas Vanek playing along side of Jochen Hecht and Jason Pominville while Dereek Roy will Center a line with C-Mac and Drew Stafford. Buffalo beat the Bruins back in October but looked awful in a loss to the Bruins last week.
While Buffalo has been sputtering as of late, the Bruins have been outstanding. They haven't lost in regulation in what seems like forever and to take it a step further they don't ever allow over two goals in a game. This is not good for a team that has to play without Tim Connolly and Ales Kotalik.
