Set for their second game in three days, Jim Montgomery and the Bruins are officially into the thick of it when it comes to their 2023 preseason schedule.
The Bruins kicked off their preseason in strong fashion, too, as the club handled the Rangers by a 3-0 final in Sunday’s opener at TD Garden.
It was an effort that saw the Bruins excel in almost every department, really, from the goaltending performance put forth by Brandon Bussi to the team’s center prospects shining, and with the special teams also chipping in with some strong play en route to the victory.
Now it’s off to Buffalo, where the Bruins will square off against the Sabres in an Atlantic Division head-to-head at the KeyBank Center. And in a significant shift from Sunday’s preseason opener against the Rangers, the Bruins are bringing a more NHL-looking roster up to Buffalo, with 11 NHLers from the 2022-23 season set to make the trip.
