Joe DiBiase reporting

The diffence between the home Buffalo Sabres and away Buffalo Sabres have been polar opposites lately. The Sabres won their last 3 road games, all out west. It took them until their 5th game of their latest home stretch to get 2 points. Tonight a meeting with the Boston Bruins who are the hottest team in hockey. They're 18-1-4 in their last 23 games, and have won 4 games in a row.

1st Period:

14:35 - Both teams are struggling to create any offense. Just 2 combined shots through the game to this point. Still scoreless in the 1st.

9:00 - The Sabres first great chance came from Jack Eichel, I know what a surprise. Eichel skated into the slot with speed and ripped a wrist shot that was saved by Tuukka Rask.

6:52 - Play was stopped because of an injury to Jack Eichel. Eichel's ankle got caught underneath him. He got up off the ice and skated to the bench under his own power, but went straight to the dressing room.

Penalty Summary:

BUF: 11:27 - Jason Pominville (2 min., hooking)
