BOSTON -- Penalty shots in the NHL are fairly rare. Penalty shots in overtime in the NHL are nearly unheard of.

Brad Marchand was the benefactor of just such an unheard of penalty shot Saturday night when the Boston Bruins played host to the Buffalo Sabres. It was the first overtime penalty-shot goal in Bruins history. And the forward made it count, giving Boston a 2-1 victory of Buffalo.

The Sabres and Bruins have needed extra ice time in each of their past two games with Boston coming out on top both times. The Bruins defeated the Sabres 3-2 in a shootout at First Niagara Center Thursday.

Boston scored first on a Loui Eriksson goal 12:22 into the first period. David Pastrnak and David Krejci assisted.

In the second period, Sam Reinhart tied the game for the Sabres at 10:53, assisted by Jamie McGinn and Ryan O'Reilly.

A scoreless third period set up the 3-on-3 overtime, where Marchand made it 2-1 Boston.

The Sabres, now 21-26-6, host the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.
