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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
