BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – David Pastrnak had a goal and two assists, and the Boston Bruins extended their winning streak to a season-best six games with a 5-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. Matt Grzelcyk scored the go-ahead goal 12:50 into the second period, and rookie Jeremy Swayman stopped 29 shots. The Bruins are on a 13-4-2 run that has propelled them into a tightly contested race for first place in the East Division. Arttu Ruotsalainen scored for Buffalo, which has lost all five meetings against the Bruins this season. The teams conclude a three-game series in Buffalo on Friday night.
