Bruins looking to snuff Sabres' best start in 13 years

If the Buffalo Sabres are to continue their best start in 13 years, they must find a way to record a rare victory over the Boston Bruins.

The Sabres are looking for their fourth straight win to open the season when they host the Bruins on Friday night.

Buffalo hasn't been to the playoffs since the 2010-11 season, but there's some early excitement that this drought could end. During their best start since opening 4-0-0 in 2008-09, the Sabres have outscored their opponents -- all at home -- 11-4 in non-shootout goals and killed all nine opposing power plays while the goaltending tandem of Craig Anderson and Dustin Tokarski has stopped 82 of 86 shots.
