Pregame Bruins - Sabres

Patrice Bergeron will miss his second straight game. He did practice today, a sign that his "lower body injury" is improving. Mark Mowers, who missed practice with the flu, is probable for tonight. Timmy Thomas will be in net again. Here is the lineup for tonight:


The Sabres have been struck with injuries for the past month. Maxim Afinogenov and Jiri Novotny both got injured last game and will be out for an extended period of time. Also lost forward Paul Gaustad (torn tendon in ankle) and defenseman Jaroslav Spacek (broken left hand). Gaustad is done for the season and Spacek is expected to miss about a month.

This season the Bruins 1-5-0 against the Sabres. They have been outscored 29-14 in those games. Tonight will be a difficult game for the Bruins to win, but hopefully they come out with some emotion and motivation, unlike last game. Look for someone to drop the gloves tonight, especially since the Sabres were upset with Brad Boyes after his bout with Lydman last time the two teams met.
