All done in Boston. Drew Stafford with the only shootout goal.

5:00 OT, 2-2: Shootout time. Bruins even had a late power play with 3.7 seconds left.

20:00 3d period, 2-2: Overtime. Bruins gain one point. Bruins qualify for playoffs.

19:23 3d period, 2-2: All tied up. With Andrew Ference in the box, Cody Hodgson redirects a Thomas Vanek pass past Anton Khudobin.

14:48 3d period, Bruins 2-1: Andrew Ference with save of night on Drew Stafford. Anton Khudobin way out of his net to challenge point shot. Couldn’t get back in time. Ference gets his leg in front of Stafford’s shot.

11:31 3d period, Bruins 2-1: Ryan Miller gloves Tyler Seguin’s slot snapper. Set up by Brad Marchand. Left wing looks just fine in his first game back from concussion.

2:02 3d period, Bruins 2-1: Daniel Paille nearly scores on shorthanded break. Ryan Miller dives to help bust up the bid. Paille having a heck of a night.

20:00 2d period, Bruins 2-1: One of better periods for Bruins in latest stretch. Grinding, physical play in offensive zone. Bruins outshot Sabres, 10-7.

14:48 2d period, Bruins 2-1: Chris Kelly foiled on first attempt. But lifts second shot over Ryan Miller’s left pad and into net. Daniel Paille with the feed. Second goal for No. 3 line.

14:29 2d period, 1-1: Ovation to honor first responders during TV timeout.

14:01 2d period, 1-1: Tempers flare. John Scott cuffs Jaromir Jagr in front of Bruins bench. Dennis Seidenberg gives Scott a jolt. Bruins don’t have right personnel on ice to handle Scott.

12:35 2d period, 1-1: Open net for Milan Lucic. Can’t handle puck. Tyler Seguin had created chance by using outside speed and feeding in front. Puck glances off Lucic’s skate.

12:19 2d period, 1-1: Flareup between Brad Marchand and Nathan Gerbe. Those two used to go at it in AHL. Not best of friends.

9:35 2d period, 1-1: Partial break for Brad Marchand. Adam Pardy busts up chance by diving at last moment. Nice pass by Jaromir Jagr to spring Marchand.

3:27 2d period, 1-1: Ten-bell save for Anton Khudobin. Kevin Porter wide open in slot for one-timer. Khudobin gloves Porter’s shot.

20:00 1st period, 1-1: Both teams work through sky-high emotions of first period. Should be back to normal hockey for Periods 2 and 3.

18:20 1st period, 1-1: Buffalo ties it up on power play. Christian Ehrhoff with point shot. Thomas Vanek tips puck past Anton Khudobin. No chance for Khudobin. Vanek might be best in tipping business.

12:53 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Tough tripping call on Brad Marchand. Video replay shows Mark Pysyk already losing edge when Marchand taps him with stick.

5:45 1st period, Bruins 1-0: Third line comes through. Chris Kelly fights through Christian Ehrhoff check down low. Finds Daniel Paille in front. Paille gives Bruins 1-0 lead.

0:00 1st period, 0-0: Kaspars Daugavins, Jay Pandolfo, Carl Soderberg, Matt Bartkowski, Aaron Johnson, and Adam McQuaid are the healthy scratches. Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, Wade Redden in.
