Bruins 2, Sabres 0

Bruins show signs of life, shut down Sabres

BUFFALO —Perhaps there was as much relief as there was joy when the puck finally crossed the goal line. After 53 minutes of mostly uninspired hockey Sunday night, of hockey that mimicked the previous day’s effort against Philadelphia, the Bruins’ top line proved its worth.

David Krejci put home a rebound after Nathan Horton had taken two shots at Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller, giving Boston a 1-0 lead. It was significant, given that the Bruins had lost five of their previous seven games, and had acknowledged their lack of consistency and urgency as the regular season winds down.
