The race for the North East Division crown will be an interesting one to watch. Three teams vie for a spot held by the Ottawa Senators for all but a cup of coffee in late December. With all three teams sporting similar schedules in the remaining season, it will come down to which of the three get hot at the right time. The reward of course is guaranteed home ice advantage and with that much needed gate revenue. The Senators have been loading up of late adding Dennis Wideman and Bill Guerin to bolster their chances while Buffalo has done a little bit of tweaking as well to try and shake a late season funk that has finally lifted. As for the Bruins they got younger and will look to build off of a big win vs. Montreal last night which ended a 7 game losing streak.
The Sabres host the Bruins tonight in a game that will go along way to determining position as the three teams lock in an epic battle to win perhaps the toughest division in the NEFHL this season. The Senators host the pesky Flames in the Nations capital, three teams, three games, big playoff implications.
