Boston/Buffalo- Revenge Game Tonight?

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

The Sabres are 0-3-1 in their last four games and haven’t been able to shake their doldrums after a 2-0 start. Miller needs to make sure one bad game doesn’t turn into two or more and what a doozy of a chance he has Thursday night.

The Eastern Conference-leading Boston Bruins (5-0-1). In TD Garden, where they are 4-0. In what’s expected to be Miller’s first start there in nearly 14½ months, since the infamous Milan Lucic bull rush over him on Nov. 12, 2011....

Miller has faced the Bruins since the Lucic incident, going 2-0 against them last February in First Niagara Center and stopping 71 of 72 shots. But Jhonas Enroth played the other two games in Boston last year.

While a renewal of hostilities with Lucic — John Scott, anyone? — might be on the minds of Sabres fans, don’t think Miller doesn’t have even more ammunition against the Bruins now, too. Remember, he reportedly had a heated exchange with Boston owner and Board of Governors Chairman Jeremy Jacobs during negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA last month in New York.
