Sabres Beat Bruins For Second Straight Win
They'd been showing signs of playing better, but the results weren't there. The Buffalo Sabres weren't scoring goals and weren't winning games. In the last two games, that's all changed, and Thursday night's game against the Boston Bruins was one of their best efforts of the season.
After falling behind 2-1 in the second period, the Sabres scored three in a row to knock off the Bruins for their second straight 4-2 win. Marcus Foligno tied the game when he tapped the puck into a wide open net late in the second period, then Drew Stafford scored the game winner with a wraparound goal with five minutes left to play in the third period. Tyler Myers clinched it a minute and a half later, and the Sabres came away with a satisfying win against one of the best teams in the league.
Myers credited Bryan Flynn for setting up that goal:

Foligno says they were rewarded for working hard, and they'll have to do it again when they meet the Bruins again on Saturday:
