PREVIEW: The Bruins are hoping to right themselves after an ugly loss to the Ducks and a heartbreaking OT loss to the Maple Leafs, and there's no team to fix a stumbling losing streak like a home and home against the Buffalo Sabres, right?

Well, they can't just expect to be walking in and taking points from the Sabres without a fight, as they're currently in a two game winning streak against the Sens and the Habs, the latter they beat 4-2 (albeit on an empty net goal). The Bruins however, have played great hockey against the Sabres so far this year. Will the B's take care of business against the Sabres? Tune in to find out!
