As you might have already gleaned, the Sabres have a lot of young talent. They're still a bit then on the blue line and their scoring depths hasn't been there yet this season, but the Bruins would be unwise to take them lightly.

Has yet to be confirmed, but Jonas Gustavsson was actually the first off the ice this morning, which usually signifies the starter. It seems likely that Claude's decided to give Rask the most rest possible and then play him on both ends of the home-and-home with the Ottawa Senators.

You know this group, you love this group. They've actually been pretty good this year, if you can whistle past the ten minutes or so per game when no one can make a breakout pass.

Festivities begin at 7, Game Thread will be up about an hour beforehand. Hope everyone's continuing to enjoy the Holiday Weekend!
