Will Sabres Retaliate for Milan Lucic’s Hit on Ryan Miller?

Will Sabres Retaliate for Milan Lucic's Hit on Ryan Miller?Get your popcorn ready — there should be a show on Wednesday night because the Bruins and Sabres certainly aren't fans of each other at the moment.

The last time these two teams played, the Bruins won 6-2 and Milan Lucic's hit on Sabres goalie Ryan Miller went unpunished. Since then, the Sabres have continued to chirp at the Bruins, with Miller calling Lucic a "gutless piece of [expletive]" while Buffalo brass whined that it was now "open season" on goalies.

The Bruins, for their part, have been too busy winning hockey games to worry about what the Sabres have to say. They've won nine in a row and have climbed from last place in the Eastern conference to the second spot in the Northeast Division.

The Sabres did nothing in response to Lucic's hit during the game in which the hit occurred, but many are expecting some form of retaliation this time around. We've heard the Sabres talk the talk and on Wednesday, they'll get their chance to walk the walk. The question is, will they?

How will the Sabres retaliate for Milan's Lucic's hit on Ryan Miller?
