Good morning from TD Garden, where the Bruins will take on the Sabres tonight. The Bruins enter tonight with a four-game winning streak. Buffalo is coming off a 5-1 home win over Ottawa last night. Jhonas Enroth was in goal for the Sabres.
The Bruins will be without Andrew Ference (lower body) tonight. Steven Kampfer will dress in Ference’s place. For now, we’ll assume Zach Hamill will play for the second straight game.
