A heated Northeast Division rivalry will be televised nationally on Tuesday night.
The Boston Bruins, who have points in 7 of their last 10 games, will host the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.
The Bruins have been successful this season thanks to the goaltending of Tim Thomas, as the veteran is 13-2-2 with a 1.46 goals-against average and .956 save percentage.
Canadian fans will also be treated to another pair of nationally-televised games on Tuesday night, as the Montreal Canadiens host the Ottawa Senators at 7 p.m. That match can be seen on TSN and RDS.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
