However, a much more intriguing storyline from the teams' first meeting may surface and cause the game to get a little chippy.
Will the Sabres seek revenge for goaltender, Ryan Miller, who was leveled by Milan Lucic of the Bruins in the team's last meeting?
The two teams last met on Nov. 12 in a game where the Bruins won 6-2, but overshadowing the final score was a play where Miller came out of his net to play a loose puck that was dumped into his zone, and Lucic hit Miller.
Here's the video.
Miller was later diagnosed with a concussion and has not returned to the ice since. Lucic did not receive any punishment outside of the two minute minor after the play. These Northeast Division rivals may get chippy when the puck drops in Buffalo later today.
