Bruins aim for 11th straight win

Buffalo (18-15-5) at Boston (29-5-4), 1:00 pm EST

BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Boston Bruins just keep winning,

especially at home.

The Bruins seek their 11th consecutive victory and 15th straight

at TD Banknorth Garden on Saturday afternoon, when they host the

Buffalo Sabres.

With an NHL-best 62 points, Boston is off to its best 38-game

start since the 1929-30 season, when it was 33-4-1. After a

sub-par start, the Bruins are a remarkable 27-3-1 over their

previous 31 contests.

"I think it's just you like to mold your team to your identity,"

Boston coach Claude Julien said after Thursday's 4-2 triumph

over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"The next day, we've really done a good job of turning the page

quickly. We realize we have a pretty good streak going on right

now, and we want to make sure it continues. We're really not

looking behind us, looking forward to the next one coming up."

The Sabres have lost four of their last six games but are coming

off a 4-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.

Jason Pominville and Derek Roy each scored two goals, while Ryan

Miller made 27 saves in the victory.
