(Kinda) Game Preview: Buffalo Sabres vs. Boston Bruins
Tonight, the Boston Bruins (24-22-11) faceoff against the Buffalo Sabres (32-18-7) in Buffalo. The Bruins currently lead the season series 2-1.
Alright, listen up kids because I’m only going to say this once. Today’s game preview will be a little shorter than the usual because… well… because I said so.
Let’s get down to business.
The Bruins last game 3-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Marco Sturm potted two goals with Patrice Bergeron getting the primary helper on both goals. Tukka Rask got the shutout as Timmy Thomas has been on a decline as of late. Like a big decline. Like trade rumors decline.
The Sabres last game was a 4-0 loss to the… ahem… Columbus Blue Jackets. Yes, the same Columbus Blue Jackets that just fired their head coach. You don’t want to talk about it. The Sabres don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to talk about it. ‘Nuff said.
I’m trying to muster up the energy necessary to put together a well done game preview but I just can’t today. I’ve got too many distractions. Between studying, Facebook and talking to my roommate about the escapades of Syd Barrett it’s too difficult to post a good one today. Also, I’ve only been able to watch like one game in the past week and a half so it is difficult to decide who is hot and who isn’t. Stats can only do so much, ya know?
However, despite this bad news I do have some good news. This Thursday I am going to start a new series of posts that will be a week rewind and a weekend preview. I have yet to find a clever name for it yet but I’m sure I’ll think of one.
Back to the game preview. What do we need to do tonight? Win. Seriously. That’s what we gotta do. Shoot. Stop making the pretty play. Just shoot. Pass to the open man. Shoot the puck. At the net. DON”T LOSE. That’s what we need to do.
Alright. Game starts at 7:00 on MSG. It’s Tuska Rask vs. the man, the myth, the Ryan Miller tonight in goal.
See you either tomorrow or Thursday. Go Sabres!
Until next time…
