Is Revenge On The Sabres' Mind?

The Boston Bruins (12-7-0) will come into the First Niagara Center looking to do one thing, extend their current win streak to a league best ten. The Buffalo Sabres (12-8-0) will try to halt that streak and even the team's season series with the Bruins at one game apiece.

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.
