Marchand, Bruins Beat Buffalo Sabres In Overtime

By Ken Powtak, Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand scored on a penalty shot midway through overtime to lift the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

Loui Eriksson also scored while the Bruins improved to 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. The Bruins beat Buffalo 3-2 in a shootout in the first of a home-and-home on Thursday night.

Sam Reinhart scored for Buffalo. The Sabres have points in a club-record eight straight road games (6-0-2).

Marchand got the penalty shot after being grabbed by defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen while skating in alone 2:32 into overtime. The Bruins wing came in on goalie Robin Lehner, shifted to his backhand and slipped a shot inside the right post.

Tuukka Rask made 37 saves for Boston, and Lehner had 36.
