8 a.m. ET: Compared to Boston, the Bruins head to a tropical climate for their Sunday night game — Buffalo. The B’s have escaped the winter wonderland that is the Hub, one night after seeing their game with the Tampa Bay Lightning “snowed out” after almost 24 hours of pounding snow and wind in the latest blizzard to spank New England. Now that the Bruins know they’re actually going to play a hockey game — barring something nutty again — they can focus on a pretty important game. Boston gets another chance at the Sabres, a little more than one week after suffering their first and only regulation loss of the season against the Sabres at the Garden on Jan. 31. Claude Julien blasted his team following that game, calling his team’s defensive efforts “brain-dead” after allowing seven goals — including a Thomas Vanek hat trick — in a 7-4 loss. That game also featured the long-awaited bout between Shawn Thornton and John Scott. There was no debating the winner, though, as Scott leveled Thornto

Mikhail Grigorenko’s Benching “Part Of The Program”

Just what are the Sabres doing with Mikhail Grigorenko? Entering Sunday night’s game against Boston  many were left wondering that very thing after the 12th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft has seen his playing time be reduced each night until he was made a healthy scratch for the contest against the Bruins.

Claude Julien, Adam McQuaid Stress Importance of ‘Sticking With It’ in Win Over Sabres (Video)

Sunday night’s matchup between the Bruins and Sabres was an exercise in determination. The Bruins felt like they dominated play through the first 40 minutes, head coach Claude Julien said, but they were unable to solve Sabres goalie Ryan Miller and break a 1-1 tie. The B’s did not let up, though, and Patrice Bergeron finally snuck a one-timer past Miller with under nine minutes...

Bruins Defining Consistency While Jumping Out to Best 10-Game Start in Club History

The Bruins keep coming back to one important thing. It’s been clear in the way they talk before and after games, and more importantly, it’s been clear in the way they’ve played.

The Bruins went into Buffalo on Sunday night and picked up a 3-1 win over the Sabres...

Second Line Foils Miller’s Superb Night As Bruins Beat Sabres, 3-1

The Bruins celebrate Patrice Bergeron’s game-winning goal in the third period of Sunday’s game against the Sabres.

The Bruins are off to their best 10-game start in franchise history, improving to 8-1-1 after a Sunday night win against the Sabres.

Anton Khudobin Giving Bruins All They Can Ask For as Tuukka Rask’s Backup

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...

Kevin Freiheit: Sabres survive storm

The Sabres never have an easy time when facing the Islanders, but they found a way to win on Saturday. Ryan Miller stopped 41 of 43 shots on the night, helping the Sabres put together two consecutive victories since season opening wins against Philadelphia and Toronto. Despite getting outshot 43-15, the Sabres held on and escaped Long Island with a much needed two points at Nassau Colise...

Have Those That Played During the Lockout Had an Advantage?

Today the Sabres face the Islanders in Nassau Coliseum thus completing the first quarter of this lockout shortened season.  It has been a disappointing start, both for the organization with a 4-6-1 record, and for many of the individual players who have struggled mightily out of the gate.  Injuries, a lack of training camp, and the condensed schedule have been the common excuses...

Kevin Freiheit: Sabres fall 3-1 to Bruins

The Sabres short two game winning streak came to an end on Sunday, as they fell 3-1 to the Bruins at the First Niagara Center. Backup goaltender Anton Khudobin made 25 of 26 saves on the night, leading Boston to victory. Khudobin made just his second start of the season, but now has wins in seven of his nine career games played, dating back to 2009. The Bruins used a power...

Bruins keep rolling, stop Sabres

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,...

Bruins’ Snow Day Against Lightning Joins New Jersey’s Fabled ’334′ Game in NHL Lore (Video)

The Bruins tried to play on Saturday despite some snowy conditions in Boston, but ultimately the NHL decided to postpone the game.
