All done in Boston. Back-to-back wins for Bruins for first time in almost two months.

17:53 3d period: Bruins 3-1
Fourth line caught in own zone. Timeout Bruins.

15:54 3d period: Bruins 3-1
David Krejci takes a pass from Milan Lucic, goes hard to the net, scores upstairs on Jhonas Enroth. Good speed all the way up the ice for Lucic and Krejci. That might be curtains for Sabres.

13:23 3d period: Bruins 2-1
Brad Marchand in pain. Belted by Tyler Myers into the wall.

12:56 3d period: Bruins 2-1
Johnny Boychuk with the laser from the right point. What a bomb. First lead for the Bruins. Terrific wall work by Jordan Caron to get the puck going the other way.

10:23 3d period: 1-1
Ten-bell save by Jhonas Enroth on Chris Kelly. Right in front. Kick save after nice Adam McQuaid pass.

9:34 3d period: 1-1
Johnny Boychuk flattens Thomas Vanek. Boychuk hasn’t let up since getting run over by Chris Neil.

2:16 3d period: 1-1
Good shot from slot by Lane MacDermid. Hasn’t looked out of place in three games.

20:00 2d period: 1-1
Very important for Bruins not to be behind after 40 minutes. Bruins with 22-14 shot advantage.

18:09 2d period: 1-1
Gregory Campbell tips Shawn Thornton blast past Jhonas Enroth. Christian Ehrhoff pass skitters off Cody Hogdson’s skate in defensive zone. Thornton jumps on puck and lets one rip.

16:05 2d period: Sabres 1-0
Jordan Caron takes a shift in Brian Rolston’s spot on No. 2 line. Rolston now on third line.

12:50 2d period: Sabres 1-0
Closest chance yet. Dennis Seidenberg rips a slapper off the right post.

8:17 2d period: Sabres 1-0
Tyler Seguin in with speed. Jhonas Enroth with the big pad stop. Excellent pass by Joe Corvo to spring Seguin.

5:21 2d period: Sabres 1-0
Couple good scoring chances so far in second for Bruins. Jhonas Enroth flawless so far.

20:00 1st period: Sabres 1-0
Bruins chasing the game once again. Good shot by Jason Pominville. But a locked-in Tim Thomas stops that shot.

16:39 1st period: Sabres 1-0
Jason Pominville breaking down right wing with speed. Rips a slapper over Tim Thomas’s glove. Good middle drive by Derek Roy.

14:58 1st period: 0-0
Good pace to the game. Bruins getting their sniffs on Jhonas Enroth. Shots 11-4.

10:07 1st period: 0-0
First PP of night. Hooking on Drew Stafford, trying to hold up Milan Lucic driving to net.

4:00 1st period: 0-0
Somewhat surprising Greg Zanon scratched. But Zanon’s best game was his first. Has slipped in every game.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
Benoit Pouliot in. Max Sauve reassigned to Providence. Greg Zanon out. Mike Mottau in.
