Buffalo’s playoff hopes remain alive – for at least one more day. The Sabres, battling every step of the way, overcame the Bruins in a 2-1 overtime win tonight. It took just 39 seconds beyond regulation for Andrej Sekera to get the job done for Buffalo. The Sabres need to win again Tuesday in Toronto to stay in contention. Elsewhere in NHL action:
- Pittsburgh remained unbeaten at home this March with a 3-1 win over the Rangers tonight. Sidney Crosby’s two goals helped the Penguins back into first place in the conference.
- Dominik Hasek notched his 81st career shutout with a 1-0 Detroit win over Nashville. Johan Franzen scored the lone goal of the game in overtime for the Red Wings.
