Boston’s newly-acquired goaltender Alex Auld was spectacular tonight, stopping 44 shots and leading the Bruins to a 4-1 victory over the Sabres. It was his second consecutive win for Boston since being acquired last week to fill in for an injured Tim Thomas. Marc Savard had a goal and an assists for the Bruins, according to the AP.
The Bruins were outshot 45 to 21 but made the most of their opportunities, scoring three goals on their first five shots of the game. The win gives Boston three in their last five contests and elevates them to the second highest point total in the Eastern Conference. Jaroslav Spacek netted Buffalo’s lone goal. The Sabres lost for the fourth time in six games.
