The Boston Bruins

The Bruins take a nine-game winning streak into their game in Buffalo, one of 13 Thanksgiving Eve contests on the NHL schedule. Not only have the Bruins won their last nine, they haven't even allowed a goal in their last two -- including Monday night's 1-0 shutout in Montreal. The Sabres have been off since a 4-2 loss to Phoenix last Saturday.
The Bruins-Sabres game is one of seven that gets under way at 7 p.m. ET.

. St. Louis, coming off a 3-2 home loss to Los Angeles on Tuesday, is at Pittsburgh for Sidney Crosby
's second game after missing more than 10 months with a concussion. Crosby's return on Monday was a smashing success -- he had two goals and a pair of assists in a 5-0 win against the Islanders.
