BOSTON (Ticker) -- With a four-game losing streak looming over them, the Buffalo Sabres have come to the right place.

The Sabres look to avoid a season high for consecutive losses Saturday when they go for their seventh straight victory over the Boston Bruins.

Buffalo's recent slide has nearly eliminated the hope of catching Ottawa for the Northeast Division title. Trailing the Senators by nine points with 13 games left, the Sabres are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, five points ahead of Philadelphia.

Daniel Briere scored his 21st goal for Buffalo in Friday's 3-1 loss to Ottawa. The Sabres have been outscored, 16-6, during the losing streak.

Boston has lost three in a row, 14 of its last 18 and appears destined to miss the playoff for the first time in five years. The Bruins are 10 points out of a postseason spot with 11 games remaining.

Glen Murray scored his 22nd goal and Brad Isbister added his sixth for the Bruins in Friday's 4-2 defeat to the New Jersey Devils.

Thomas Vanek had two goals and an assist for Buffalo in a 6-2 win over Boston in their most recent encounter March 12. The teams also play each other Wednesday.
