Berkshire Bank Hockey Night In New England: Projected Bruins-Sabres Lines, Pairings

The Boston Bruins’ winning ways came to an end Saturday against the New York Rangers, but they can get right back on track Monday night with the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden.

The Bruins struggled in all phases in the loss to New York over the weekend, but their recent track record has been more positive than not, especially because of Tuukka Rask’s play in net.

But the young and exciting Sabres are off to a nice start and could present multiple challenges.

Matt Beleskey–Riley Nash–Austin Czarnik
Tim Schaller–Dominic Moore–Noel Acciari

Zdeno Chara–Brandon Carlo
Torey Krug–Adam McQuaid
