That didn't take long – Gaustad and Lucic lining up—
Buffalo Sabres (@SabresDotCom) November 24, 2011
The Sabres official Twitter feed summed it up quite nicely. It only took 1:23 into the game for the Sabres to send the message that they failed to do the last time Buffalo and Boston took the ice. On the third shift of the game – and the first time Milan Lucic took the ice – Sabres coach countered with Paul Guastad. 18,000 people in First Niagara Center knew what was coming next.
This was only the beginning of a first period that featured plenty of fireworks.
