Bruins Win 10th Straight as Milan Lucic Gets Less than Warm Welcome

Bruins edge Sabres, extend win streak to 10

      BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – Benoit Pouliot scored the deciding goal in
the fifth round of the shootout, and the Boston Bruins rallied from
two different two-goal deficits for their 10th straight win, a 4-3
victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night.

      Tyler Seguin had a goal and assist, Brad Marchand and Zdeno
Chara also scored, and Tim Thomas finished with 31 saves for Boston
(13-7-0) in the first meeting between the two teams since Milan
Lucic bowled over Sabres goalie Ryan Miller 11 days ago. Miller
sustained a concussion on the play, and is still sidelined.

      The Sabres didn't go after Lucic at the time, but Paul Gaustad
and Lucic squared off just 83 seconds into this one, with Lucic
landing several rights to Gaustad's head and body.

      It is the Bruins' first 10-game winning streak since Dec. 12 to
Jan. 1, 2009.
      T.J. Brennan

scored his first NHL goal in his first game, and
Christian Ehrhoff and Thomas Vanek also scored for the Sabres
(12-8-1), who lost their second straight.

      Jhonas Enroth finished with 36 saves in making his fifth
straight start since Miller was injured.
