The Boston Bruins visit Buffalo to take on the Sabres in their quest to finish the regular season with the Presidents’ Trophy.
The Buffalo Sabres have headed in a downward spiral after a great start to the season and will be in tough on Friday evening against one of the league’s best teams. Buffalo has been a much better team at home than on the road though and will be up for the challenge presented by the Bruins.
Boston has picked up important wins in recent weeks to cement their spot atop the Atlantic Division but have now set their sights on the Presidents’ Trophy which would guarantee home ice advantage throughout the postseason. There is no team in the league who has more wins on the road than Boston and they will be expecting to leave Buffalo with two points in hand.
While the Sabres have been good at First Niagara Center this season, Boston might be the best team in the world right now and should ultimately get the job done on Friday evening.
Take Boston to pick up yet another win on the road.
