Bergeron leads Bruins to 3-1 win over Sabres

(Continued)

Miller’s best save came six minutes into the second period when he spread-eagled, getting his right pad out, to stop Nathan Horton’s one-timer from the left circle.

And Miller had little chance on Marchand’s opening goal, which sneaked in through a crowd 7:10 into the second period. The goal came as a result of Ennis’ lazy no-look clearing attempt that was easily stopped at the left point by Andrew Ference.

Ennis made up for that miscue 11 minutes later. Set up along in front by Drew Stafford’s pass from the right boards, Ennis faked a shot to draw out Khudobin, and then snapped a shot in behind the goalie.

The Bruins goalie had his big moments, too, though most of the Sabres shots he faced came from the outside.

Khudobin got his blocker out to stop Stafford’s sharp shot from the right circle 5 minutes in. He did the same to stop a shot from defenseman Andrej Sekera from nearly the same spot midway through the second period.

Bruins forward Chris Kelly avoided a scare in the final seconds of the first period. Driving in on net from the left wing, Kelly got a shot off before going airborne and crashing hard into the right post. Kelly got up immediately and returned for the start of the second period.

NOTES: Sabres D Robyn Regehr returned after missing seven games with a lower body injury. LW Matt Ellis was waived for reassignment to AHL Rochester. ... Bruins forward Shawn Thornton returned after missing two games with a concussion. The Bruins had two other regulars return: forwards Daniel Paille (upper body), who missed two games, and Marchand (upper body), who missed one game. ... Sabres LW Ville Lieno, who’s yet to play this season because of a hip injury, said before the game that he felt “not bad” after skating earlier in the day.
