BUFFALO — Buffalo's shot production was increased 50 percent Thursday night — to 15. And they scored two more goals than they did in Toronto. But they still lost.

Up 2-1 with five-and-a-half minutes to go in the third, the Sabres allowed Boston's Brad Marchand to score the game-tying goal. Marchand scored again 1:20 into the overtime to seal the deal for the Bruins.

After a scoreless first period, the Sabres got on the board first 5:12 into the second with a power play goal by Drew Stafford, assisted by the Tylers — Ennis and Myers. Boston tied the game at 1 at 11:36 with a goal by Adam McQuaid, assisted by Carl Soderberg and Marchand. Then Ennis put the Sabres back up 2-1 at 16:25 of the second with assists by Torrey Mitchell and Stafford.

From there it was the Marchand show with support from Loui Eriksson and Dennis Seidenberg on the third-period goal, and Reilly Smith and Dougie Hamilton on the overtime goal.

The Sabres shot output so far in the 2014-2015 season has been lackluster. Tuesday night the team got just 10 shots on goal in a 4-0 loss in Toronto. So while Thursday's 15 is nothing to celebrate, it is an improvement.

With the loss in overtime, the Sabres are now 2-8-1 for five points. Only the Carolina Hurricanes have a worse record at 0-6-2.
