Brad Marchand and Tyler Segiun are also streaking for the Bruins. Marchand put up two goals against the Oilers on Thursday and is currently running a four-game point streak, whereas Seguin has five goals in three games and a five-game point streak.

Meanwhile, Ryan Miller, the most likely candidate to be in between the pipes for the Sabres after Enroth played in last nigh't game, has done well against the Bruins in the past. Though his record this year has left Buffalo desiring more, he hopes to continue his success against the Bruins tonight.
