Sabres at Bruins preview: Back to Lindback, once again
The Sabres continue their trend of riding goalies when they're hot.
Buffalo Sabres (19-43-7) vs.
Boston Bruins (36-23-10)
1. How will Anders Lindback look on back-to-back nights?
Ted Nolan and the Sabres coaching staff made a late change to the line-up, opting to go with Anders Lindback instead of Matt Hackett in goal. Will Lindback be able to overcome the task of two games in two nights?
2. Can Johan Larsson stay hot?
The young Sabres forward has taken a lot of criticism based on his lack of scoring this year, but he's been playing very well on the top line as of late. He has three goals in his past four games and looks to continue to prove himself to Nolan.
