58. Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres. Guess Who’s Back? Back Again. Bruins Are Back, Tell A Friend.

It is time. 



I love Olympic hockey and I especially enjoyed the Women's tournament this year, but there's nothing like watching the Bruins play. It feels good to have Boston back on the ice and kicking their stretch run to Stanley in the sad, shitty city of Buffalo. 

I can't stand Buffalo and this is coming from a Bills fan. Pause for audible gasp. It's such a shithole of a city. It smells like fermented piss left there by a gaggle of homeless men who pounded Natty Ice. It is boring – there's like nothing there. I went to a Bills/Patriots game at Ralph Wilson once and I was surprised the stadium didn't crumble beneath my feet as I walked to my seat. That stadium is so old I heard Jesus Christ's crucifixion was held there. 

The whole sports scene in that city is like brutal car wreck. You can't help but watch as bodies are being thrown through the glass, with a mouth over your hand in horror as you watch EJ Manuel do his best JP Losman impression or Ryan Miller doing his best Lindy Ruff impression and giving it the good ole college cry. 

I can't wait for this game tonight. I haven't been this jazzed for a Bruins game in awhile. The break was nice to recharge from a blogging standpoint, but I'm excited as fuck to get back into this. We've missed you, reader. 

The Bruins also have Buffalo in a good spot. Not only do they completely suck but they're on their second of a back-to-back. Last night they defeated Carolina 3-2 with Ryan Miller in net. With the shopping of Miller currently going down – Buffalo could run him out there tonight as well – and if they don't, the Bruins get Jonas Enroth who has been the product of a tire fire having sex with a door knob. 

March is going to be a tough stretch for the Bruins, there's no doubt about it. I'm going to do a post later today that will break down March's run of 17 games in 31 days – so it's crucial that Boston beats up on bad teams like Buffalo now. 

After the jump, we finish this bad boy off…
