Buffalo Sabres Hope to Right the Ship Against Boston Bruins

For the second time in a week, the Buffalo Sabres will be playing the Boston Bruins at First Niagara Center. For the Sabres, the hope is that this meeting will turn out better than the last. 

Ryan Miller will get the start again tonight for the struggling Sabres as the team hopes to stop a two-game losing streak against the team that started the streak. 

The Sabres, who are 5-8-1 are the only team to have beaten the Bruins (8-1-2) in regulation this season. So far this season though, home ice hasn't been helping either team, with both winning their matches against each other on the road.

For the Bruins, they hope to keep an unbeaten streak of six games on the road intact while the Sabres are hoping to win a home game, something that has been hard as of late. 

The big story continues to be the Sabres' woes as of late. 12th place in the Eastern Conference isn't good enough, and head coach Lindy Ruff know this. 

 

"It is on me," Ruff told reporters. "I understand that. This is on me to clean it up."
 
While Ruff is trying to stay positive to turn the ship around, he also commented on the morale of the team.
 
"The attitude of the players has been awesome," Ruff said. "The attitude of the players on the ice today was great."
 
He continued. "We're disappointed. Do we need to be harder in some situations? Yes. We didn't quite finish a couple plays we need to finish. Some of them were offensively, some of them were defensively."
 
"The team will feed off my energy. I came in here, we had a couple good meetings. We talked about things we have to get going a little bit better, talked about getting the team in the right mood today and that's up to me."
 
Faceoff is at 7:00 p.m. tonight.
