Boston Bruins (8-1-2) vs. Buffalo Sabres (5-8-1)

Puck Drop – 7:00pm – First Niagara Center – Buffalo, NY

It’s game three for these division rivals and both teams look to secure a win in order to win the five game series. In their first match-up of the season, Boston fell to Buffalo of 7-4, in an ugly game that sidelined Bruins’ Shawn Thornton for two games with a concussion after fighting Sabres’ John Scott. Boston has already taken advantage of Buffalo on the road this week in its second game. The Bruins battled a tired Sabres team that was unable to keep pace in the third period, defeating Buffalo 3-1 in a win that wasn’t as close as the score might say. Boston looks to make it five straight road wins Friday night. What do you think the outcome will be?
