BOSTON -- Max Sauve has been returned to the Providence Bruins and wasnt a part of the pregame warm-up for the Bs and Sabres at TD Garden. Itll be Tim Thomas appearing in his seventh straight game and Jhonas Enroth snapping a streak of 21 straight game played for the Bs and Sabres respectively. Thomas is 10-9-4 with a 3.14 GAA and .897 save percentage in 26 career games against the Sabres while Enroth is 0-2-1 with a 4.79 GAA and .871 save percentage against the Bruins.
Its the same lineup for the Bruins that they featured against both the Rangers and Maple Leafs in a pair of encouraging efforts, and theyll need the same energy and fight against a Buffalo team clinging to playoff hopes just two points out of the No. 8 position in the Eastern Conference.
Here is the projected lineup for the Bruins:
