Tale of the Tape: Sabres host Bruins
Tale of the Tape: Buffalo Sabres host Boston Bruins on Wednesday Night Rivalry.

The one constant in the history of the Buffalo Sabres has been the Boston Bruins. The teams have been in the same division since the Sabres entered the NHL in 1970. They're at opposite ends of the Atlantic Division standings this season, but there will be plenty of intensity when they face off for the fourth time this season in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2).

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
