For the second straight game, the Bruins couldn't finish off a divisional opponent in regulation, but this time the Bruins came out on the winning end in a 3-2 overtime victory over Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres.
The Thomas vs Miller battle was as advertised, with both goalies making game saving stops several times. Bruins also put on a clinic about what NOT to do when making passes. The Bruins were allergic to passing for about 90% of the game. It was ridiculous.
The Bruins also loved missing the net. Boston loved sending pucks wide. They really, really LOVED sending pucks wide. They even missed a couple of wiiiiiiide open nets. But hey, every victory isn't pretty. All that matters is the Bruins got a much needed two points after blowing a late lead and losing against Toronto.
In many ways this was a typical game for the Sabres. Miller was awesome. Patrick Kaleta was a wussy little coward. Vanek scored a big goal against the Bruins.
In many ways this was a typical game for the Bruins. Thomas was awesome, and kept his team in the game long enough for them to get going. Boychuk was stellar on defense. He just shuts people down all day long. Recchi showed again why the Bruins value him so much.
After the jump.... bad passing, lazy play, but a sweet sweet victory......
