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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
