2) There will be no fights tonight unless a player from either team takes takes liberties with an opposing player, or the score gets out of hand.
3) Both teams will be focused on winning the game, not fighting. The Bruins are focused on grabbing the top spot in the Eastern Conference, while the Sabres are focused on getting out of the basement.
I love fighting as much as anyone else, but you have to remember, players (and that includes the tough guys) play to win games first, and everything else is secondary.
Yes, but this isn't like a Bruins Devils game were the two points are important and no history.
Going back about 5 years now these teams have been at each other throats, including the play offs.
I think tonight is the night we have our first real line brawl, fight fest.
Just a gut feeling. If not, I'm canceling my NHL package because these type of it of market divisional games is why I bought it to begin with. Well my auntie bought it for, but you know what I mean, lol.
