Bruins swarm Sabres
“At times our power play looked disorganized,’’ noted Bruins coach Claude Julien. “You have to give penalty killing on both sides credit. But I didn’t think our execution on the power play was very good. It comes down to execution and burying the puck, and until we do that we’ll continue to struggle with it.’’

Finally, with 7:52 gone in the third period and the scored knotted at 1-1, Patrice Bergeron connected with the winner only 28 seconds after the Sabres were penalized for delay of game. Chris Bourque initiated the score with a shot from up high that ricocheted into the slot off the rear wall. With the Sabres’ back line slow to adjust, Bergeron swooped in and potted a wrister from the inner edge of the left circle, beating goalie Ryan Miller halfway up on the glove side.


Sabres waiting for Myers to stand tall
The 6-foot-8-inch Myers, the NHL’s rookie of the year in June 2010, was scratched (coach’s decision) Saturday night on Long Island, and again on Sunday. Once considered one of the league’s more promising talents, his game this season has been a shambles, both on offense and defense. He stands a team-worst minus-9.

“He’s beating himself up,’’ said coach Lindy Ruff, following his club’s morning workout. “I’m trying to get him to park some of the bad stuff that’s happened.’’


Rare man-up goal gives B’s win.
BUFFALO — As they say about power plays, it isn’t as much about the sheer number of goals — it’s the timing of when you score one.

The Bruins, finally, got one last night when they needed it most.

After failing on their first four power plays, and not looking too sharp doing it, the Bruins connected on Patrice Bergeron’s shot from the left hashmark at 7:52 of the third period, the key to a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.


Khudobin comes up big .
BUFFALO — The Bruins’ plan entering this weekend was for Tuukka Rask to play against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday at the Garden, and for Anton Khudobin to face the Buffalo Sabres last night. When Saturday’s game was snowed out, coach Claude Julien had the opportunity to come back with Rask last night.

Instead, Julien stuck with Khudobin. He wasn’t sorry, as the B’s backup delivered a strong 25-save effort in his team’s 3-1 victory.

“You know what? He’s a good goaltender,” Julien said. “This just gives Tuukka a little bit of rest here. We’re going into Boston Tuesday against the Rangers. He’s not going to get rusty from this little bit of time off. I think it’s important to also keep Dobie as fresh as possible.He’s playing well enough; he deserves to play.


Bergeron leads Bruins to 3-1 win
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Turns out, Mother Nature could only delay the Bruins from continuing what’s become their hottest start in franchise history.

A day after Boston’s home game against Tampa Bay was postponed because of a blizzard, the Bruins traveled to Buffalo to pick up their pace with a 3-1 win over the Sabres on Sunday night.

“Yesterday, we were ready to play, so I guess it gave us a day to rest,” center Patrick Bergeron. “We got here, and we knew Buffalo played last night, so we tried to take advantage of that.”

Very Random thoughts of above in no particular order:

A) Gaspar and KPD = who cares.

2) I'd love to see Tyler Myers in a B's jersey, in the Bruins system with Julien coaching him.

C3) Are the Bruins taking a page from "Money Ball" with their (non) power-play?

Would like to see the Buffalo newspaper accounts of the game. That would be interesting.
