Know the enemy
As bad as last year was in Buffalo, where Lindy Ruff was shown the door midway through the lockout-shortened season, things have gotten that much worse for the Blue and Gold just 10 games into the season. Under new coach Ron Rolston, the team is an abysmal 1-8-1 in their first 10 and it looks like things aren’t going to get any better. Both Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek have been the subject of many trade rumors (including one as recently as this week), while GM Darcy Regier continues to be under scrutiny in Western New York.
Yet, as part of NBCSN’s “Rivalry Wednesday”, the Sabres get another appearance on national television against the Black and Gold. The last time the B’s were on “Rivalry Wednesday” were against these same Sabres just two days after the Boston Marathon Bombings.
Despite the slow start, this is very well a trap game for the Bruins as the San Jose Sharks await their arrival for tomorrow’s contest.
