The Bruins probably should have won by three or four goals Sunday night in Buffalo, but Ryan Miller was stellar in net for the Sabres, and only allowed two goals (Boston added an empty-netter) in a 3-1 win Bruins win. Miller made a couple of highlight-reel saves and made himself one of the major story lines of the game. In the process, Miller overshadowed his counterpart at the other end of the ice, Boston backup and the game’s first star, Anton Khudobin. Khudobin was solid once again in between the pipes for the Bruins, picking up his second win of the season, and his third win of his Boston career. In the process, Khudobin pushed his career record to 7-1-0 with a 1.51 goals against average and a .954 save percentage. With the Bruins’ relatively tame schedule thus far along with the play of No. 1 goalie Tuukka Rask, Khudobin’s chances have been few and far between. But when he’s been called upon, he’s shined for the Bruins, giving them all they can ask for in a backup goaltender. “...

Khudobin stands tall in big win over Buffalo

After getting lit up on their home ice just over a week ago by Thomas Vanek and the Buffalo Sabres, the Bruins, powered by a strong performance from back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin, secured a 3-1 win last night in what has become a heated rivalry. Shawn Thornton was back on the ice along with Sabres' enforcer John Scott, who knocked Thornton out for several games with a concussion...

Khudobin shines brighter than Rihanna's forehead at the Grammys. BRUINS WIN!

The Bruins scored a big victory last night in Buffalo if we want to play up the revenge angle, but I don't. I don't see why people believed the Bruins needed to avenge Shawn Thornton because of what happened with him and John Scott. If an enforcer gets hurt fighting an enforcer, there's nothing to atone for. Instead, Boston came out and pretty much manhandled the Buffalo...

Tim Thomas’ On-Ice Success Will Define His Legacy, NESN’s Gord Kluzak Says (Video)

Despite all the off-ice drama surrounding former Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas, he is still the player who backstopped the B’s to their first Stanley Cup championship in 38 years. That, NESN’s Gord Kluzak says, is what Thomas will be most remembered for as his career in Boston comes to a close. “I think [the controversy] will all be lost when you look back,” Kluzak said during...

Sabres 3, Islanders 2

Ryan Miller made 41 saves, and Alexander Sulzer scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period for the Buffalo Sabres, who earned a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders despite being badly outshot Saturday night. Thomas Vanek and Christian Ehrhoff added goals for the Sabres, who won their second straight game. Buffalo was outshot 43-15 by the Islanders, who dropped...

NHL Action Continues on Fox Sports

The Boston Bruins host the New York Rangers in this week's featured NHL game of the week. The Bruins enter the 2012-13 season basically the same team that made the playoffs last year with one major exception. Goalie Tim Thomas announced he was taking the season off, which has accelerated the full time playing status for heir apparent, Tuukka Rask. Rask was signed to a one-year...

Sabres Still Looking For Answers

Photo Courtesy: Bill Wippert/NHLI via Getty Images Another night, another game in which the offense struggled, the defense was awful, and Ryan Miller had to stand on his head in order to keep the Sabres in contention for a victory. For the third game in a row, and second in as many nights, the Sabres were horribly outplayed by their opponent. But unlike the previous two outings,...

PREVIEW 10.5: Bruins vs. Sabres -- We're Mostly Dug Out

  Is today's game Game 10 or Game 11? **** it, we'll go with Game 10.5 for now. Stupid snow storms... Last time the Bruins and Sabres faced off the Bruins played like ass. The defense had more holes than swiss cheese, Tuukka Rask was left out to dry like sheets at your grandmothers house and Thomas Vanek was allowed to mollest this **** out of Rask like a bad...
