BUFFALO -- Powered by Ryan Spooner's shootout goal, the Boston Bruins left First Niagara Center with two points, leaving the Buffalo Sabres with just one.

Buffalo jumped out to an early lead with an Evander Kane goal at 11:35, assisted by Brian Gionta.

Sam Reinhart put the Blue & Gold up 2-0 just 47 seconds into the second period. Mark Pysyk and Ryan O'Reilly assisted on the goal. Less than a minute later, however, Spooner scored to bring the Bruins within one, assisted by Torey Krug and Kevan Miller at 1:45.

In the third period, Brad Marchand scored at 2:44 to tie the game at 2-2, assisted by Patrice Bergeron.

In the shootout session, Spooner scored Boston's only goal, while Sabres shooters Gionta, Kane and O'Reilly were held scoreless.
