Petr Tenkrat scores lone shootout goal to lift Bruins past Sabres 4-3

Marc Savard and Shean Donovan each had a goal and an assist, and Marco Sturm also scored for the Bruins, who won for the first time in seven trips to Buffalo. Tim Thomas made 27 saves through 65 minutes and also didn't allow a goal on eight shootout attempts by the Sabres.

Daniel Briere had a goal and assist, while Chris Drury, with his career-high 31st, and Drew Stafford scored for the Sabres, who forced extra time by overcoming a two-goal deficit. Buffalo snapped a four-game win streak and also lost for the first time in seven home games.

Tenkrat, the Bruins' eighth shooter, scored when his snap shot was initially stopped by Ryan Miller, but the puck had enough momentum to dribble in under the goalie. Officials initially ruled Miller had made the save, but the goal was allowed to stand after a video review.
