Red-hot Bruins visit slumping Sabres

Boston (14-3-4) at Buffalo (9-8-3), 7:00 p.m. EST

BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) -- The Boston Bruins have been on

fire during the month of November. The Buffalo Sabres are

well-aware.

Riding a four-game winning streak, the Bruins look to post their

third victory over the Sabres this month when the teams meet on

Wednesday.

Boston is 9-0-1 in November - 12-1-1 in its last 14 overall -

and has risen to the top of the Northeast Division.

The Bruins posted a 3-1 victory over Buffalo on November 8 and

again defeated the Sabres, 7-4, on November 19 - both wins

coming at home.

Boston is coming off a 3-2 shootout victory over Montreal on

Saturday as goaltender Tim Thomas stopped all three attempts in

the bonus format after Blake Wheeler scored in the first round.

Thomas has a 1.80 goals-against average and leads the league

with a .944 save percentage.

Buffalo has dropped five consecutive contests and has three wins

in its last 13 games.

Mark Mancari and Derek Roy both tallied in the Sabres' 4-2 loss

to the New York Islanders on Saturday.

Buffalo has been outscored 25-9 during its skid.
