I think they’ve been on the winning side of few more of them than us lately. So, it’s a big match.”The Sabres (21-12-5) have a three-point lead over the Bruins (20-14-4).“You have this next little bit here where you’re still in that midpoint of the season and then all of a sudden it gets to be the stretch run,” Sabres right winger Kyle Okposo said after practice Friday. “That’s when teams are fighting, they’re really clawing for every point. But points now are the same as points then.Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy will miss the game Saturday with a lower-body injury.

Pominville practiced Friday.“We’ve earned the right to be where we’re at,” Pominville said. “But at the same time, there’s a still a lot of work to be done. It’ll fun to see the team grow through this adversity, the challenge of seeing teams ready to play us.“Maybe at the start when we were winning Patrik Laine Jersey , we might’ve caught teams off guard a little bit. But now that they know they come in here, they’re going to face a good team, they’re going to face a team that depth that plays well and plays hard.”Sabres center Jack Eichel scored his 15th goal of the season Thursday, but the Sabres are still lacking scoring from their supporting cast.“We’ve got to find a way,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said. “And I’ll continue to say it: If you want to score in this league Vladimir Sobotka Jersey Womens , you’re going to have to get dirty once in a while and you’re going to have to go to the net. It’s going to get harder as we move forward here. That’s a challenge for us.”Despite the injuries to McAvoy and Marchand, the Bruins are becoming whole again.Left winger Jake DeBrusk and defensemen Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller all returned Thursday.Chara missed 19 games after he wrenched his left knee Nov. 14 against the Avalanche at Colorado.Miller missed 13 games after suffering a fractured larynx Nov. 26 at Toronto when he was hit in the throat by a deflected shot.DeBrusk was hit in the head by the puck on a shot from a teammate in the Nov. 26 game, played for the next four games and then missed the next nine games with concussion symptoms.
