Bruins, Sabres meet on Wednesday Night Rivalry
NHL.com's John Kreiser provides the tale of the tape as the Boston Bruins visit the Buffalo Sabres in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game.

From the moment the Buffalo Sabres entered the NHL in 1970, they've been paired with the Boston Bruins. The teams, now in their 44th year in the same division, get together for the first time in 2013-14 and the 269th time in the regular season when they face off in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m., NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
