Sabres fall to Bruins

 

Boston was looking to make it 3 in a row tonight against their Adams Division foe Buffalo. The Sabres have been one of the worst teams in the NFHL this season but they have the ability to surprise once in a while like when they beat Boston earlier in the season. The Bruins came to play on this evening, beating their rivals going away 9-1.

 

Boston came out flying and Buffalo was overmatched early. Alex Mogilny continued on his torrid pace the past couple of games scoring a minute in to break the ice. It was one of four Boston goals in the period, with Ziggy Palffy and Jim Peplinski with a pair.

 

Mario Doyon with a powerplay goal five minutes into the second got Buffalo on the board. Mogilny with his second of the game, Shaun Van Allen and Alexei Kasatonov also scored and it was 7-1 after the second.

 

Libor Dolana, elevated in the lineup due to Steve Larmer being out, scored on the powerplay and Kasatonov scored his second of the game to close out the scoring. Make the final 9-1 Boston.

 

With the win Boston has now won 3 in a row. They have a night off, then face Buffalo again in the second of their back to back.
