Once again, the Bruins youth movement provided a timely highlight thanks to Jake DeBrusk.

After collecting a pass from Charlie McAvoy at the red line, DeBrusk carried the puck into the attacking end, snuck past Sabres forward Jason Pominville with a self-pass off the side boards and rifled the puck past the glove of  Robin Lehner.

DeBrusk’s eighth of the season gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead at 10:14 of the second period.

“I just came across the blue [line] and tried to make a quick move and a get a shot through the d-man,” DeBrusk said about his short-side snipe past Lehner. “It went where I wanted to go. I didn’t know if it went in until I heard the bar and as soon as I heard that, I knew I had good wood on it, so I was very happy on how it went in and it gave us the 1-0 lead.”
