The city of Boston has been through unimaginable pain over the past few days. With a lot still left to play for, the Bruins will take the ice Wednesday with a chance to give the city something to cheer for. The Bruins will welcome the Buffalo Sabres to town just two days after the devastating terrorist attack that took place at the Boston Marathon on Monday. The team’s game against the Ottawa Senators was postponed because of the incident, and now a couple of days after it happen the Bruins must find a way to get in the right frame of mind ahead of this next online sports betting battle with their Northeast division rivals.

The Sabres were a 3-1 NHL Picks winner in their last game when they beat the Lightning. That made winners of bettors who got Buffalo at -115 on the moneyline, while the total score (4) was good news for UNDER bettors.

It will be an emotional scene when the Bruins take to the ice at the TD Garden, and it will be on the team to respond by focusing on the task at hand and giving its fans something to cheer for. Boston has been excellent on home ice so far this season, and has to find a way to bounce back after consecutive losses to the Islanders and Hurricanes prior to Monday’s game against the Senators being cancelled. Tuukka Rask looked good in each of those losses as his save percentage never dipped below .920, but the Bruins didn’t play with the kind of effort that got them to where they are this season. Jaromir Jagr has helped provide an offensive spark both five-on-five and on the power play, but Boston still needs more from its top line of Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton, and David Krejci.

As tough as the last few days have been for the Bruins and their families, this is a team in a fight for the Northeast division title and home ice advantage in the playoffs and it has to respond after two disappointing losses. The Sabres have fought hard to climb their way back in to contention, but they have overachieved of late and should come back down to earth in another spirited rivalry game at Boston.
