Here it is. The big moment we've all been waiting for. A chance for the Sabres to finally back up all of their talk from the last couple weeks after Milan Lucic's run-in with Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller.
But since the game falls on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, it may be competing for some people's attention with their former high school or college friends that they may not have seen in awhile. And while awkward small talk is fine amongst friends, nobody would call the Sabres and Lucic "friends" anytime soon.
NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is expecting the Bruins to stand their ground, but it will be up to the Sabres to set the tone in this one, awkward or not. And if they throw in a Planes, Trains and Automobiles reference? That's ok, too.
