With nine games played and only one regulation disater of a loss, the Bruins are looking to redeem their play against the Buffalo Sabers. The boys flew into Buffalo last night, and took to the ice this morning for practice.
Claude Julien is sticking with the line that came up big during Montreal, Tyler Seguin skating with David Krejci and Milan Lucic. Another change is Bergeron centering Rich Peverley and Nathan Horton. Chris Kelly is between Chris Bourque (48) and Jamie Tardiff (68), and the Merlot line stuck together in practice (Paille, Campbell, Thornton).
It could be a big night for Anton Khudobin, the first goalie off the ice from practice.
However Claude is keeping his plans private, telling both goalies to be ready to start. Also mentioning that Marchand, Paille, and Thornton are all game time decisions.
Jay Pandolfo made the trip to New York also, hitting the ice for practice. He has yet to be signed to a contract, but being on a Professional Tryout Agreement means he can travel and practice with the team, just not suit up come game time.
Bruins need to be ready to play the full 60minutes tonight if they want to beat the Sabers. The defense needing to solidify in our own end. Defensive pairs at practice stand as 33-55, 44-27, 21-54, with Johnson playing as the oddman out.
Marc Savard predicts that David Krejci is going to have a big night, and the Bruins will lead by 2.
