Boston Bruins @ Buffalo Sabres, 2/4/2016

Tonight the Bruins take on the Buffalo Hi I’m Chad Johnsons. Bruins are looking to rebound from a OT loss against the Leafs while Buffalo beat the Habs (hahahahahaha!) last night 4-2. Hopefully the Bruins can take advantage of a team that’s playing the second game of a back to back.

YOU ALL WATCH HOCKEY!

Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Bruins, 2/2/2016

The Boston Bruins return from the All Star break 29-18-5 for 57 points, fourth in the Atlantic and first in the wild card. Tonight they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs (17-22-9 43 points) at TD Garden. The Bruins are 11-13-2 at home; with games against Toronto and Buffalo this week at the Garden, their home record should improve. Toronto is 10-14-2 on the road and 1-7-2 in their last ten.
