BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Brad Marchand had two goals, including at 1:20 of overtime and the Boston Bruins won their third straight road game with a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.
Drew Stafford and Tyler Ennis each had a goal and an assist for the Sabres, who remained winless at home this season.
Marchand added an assist on Adam McQuaid’s goal for the Bruins. Niklas Svedberg made 13 saves for his second win of the season. Both came against Buffalo.
Jhonas Enroth made 34 saves for Buffalo.
Marchand’s tying goal at 14:30 of the third period was reviewed after he redirected Loui Eriksson’s shot past Enroth with his hand. But the score stood.
Boston outshot the Sabres 37-15.
Buffalo’s first power-play goal of the season came on its 34th opportunity, as Stafford received a cross-ice pass from Ennis, who had skated from behind the net. Svedberg could not get across in time to stop Stafford’s wrist shot at the 5:12 of the second.
The Bruins tied the game at 11:36 when McQuaid’s shot deflected off Mike Weber and past Enroth’s left skate.
Marcus Foligno created a breakaway with about five minutes remaining in the period, and stepped around Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton before Svedberg stopped a low shot with his right pad.
Buffalo retook the lead at 16:25 of the second off a three-way play started by Stafford in his zone. His bank shot off the boards found Torrey Mitchell on a 2-on-1 break with Ennis, who finished the chance with a hard wrister.
NOTES: Buffalo managed just seven shots in the second and third periods combined. Chris Stewart fought Milan Lucic just 51 seconds into the game.
