BUFFALO http://www.officialmap...idas-morgan-rielly-jersey , N.Y. (AP) — Brad Marchand was relieved in seeing how the Boston Bruins went from what the forward called “brutal” one night to much better the next.Marchand set up all four goals and Jaroslav Halak stopped 32 shots in a 4-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday, a day after Boston opened the season with an embarrassing 7-0 loss at Washington.“When you have a game like last night, it can definitely make you a little nervous about how things are going to go,” Marchand said. “But I think this just gave us the confidence that we know we can settle down and bounce back.”Captain Zdeno Chara and rookie Ryan Donato staked the Bruins to a 2-0 lead by the 15:34 mark of the first period. David Pastrnak scored in the second and Patrice Bergeron capped the victory with an empty-net goal with 12 seconds left.The new-look Sabres, featuring rookie No. 1 draft pick Rasmus Dahlin and Jack Eichel as captain, more resembled the team that finished last in the standings for the third time in five years. After receiving rousing cheers upon being introduced before the opening faceoff in their season opener, the Sabres were booed off the ice following the first and second periods.“Obviously, I think their fuse is a bit short for us, and rightfully so,” Eichel said, referring to fans’ impatience. “We haven’t played well the last few years. That’s on us to put a better product on the ice.”It’s been a familiar lament for the Sabres. Dating to last season, Buffalo has lost five straight overall and six in a row at home — including three shutout losses. The Sabres dropped to 0-5-1 in their past six season openers. They were shut out for the fourth time to open a season Nikita Zaitsev Jersey Kids , and first since a 2-0 loss at Philadelphia in 2003.Buffalo failed to score despite playing much of the final five minutes with the goalie pulled for an extra attacker.Halak got the start a night after allowing two goals on 18 shots in replacing starter Tuukka Rask, who was yanked midway through the second period against Washington. The shutout was the 43rd of Halak’s career.“We all knew it just wasn’t good enough yesterday and we needed to come back tonight and bounce back, and that’s what we did,” said Halak, who signed with Boston in July.Chara opened the scoring 6:33 in, when he was allowed to skate in alone up the left side and beat offseason free-agent addition Carter Hutton on the short side.Hutton finished with 22 saves and had no chance on Donato’s power-play goal nine minutes later. Donato was alone driving to the right post, where he redirected Marchand’s pass from the high slot.The 18-year-old Dahlin had an inconsistent night and at times looked hesitant in being matched with several defensive partners. He was on the ice for the Bruins’ third goal in allowing David Krejci’s pass through the crease go directly through his legs. The pass set up Pastrnak, who scored while being left alone at the left post.Dahlin finished second among Buffalo players with 22 minutes and 37 seconds of ice time, and was credited with two hits and one giveaway.“Yeah, it was a little bit faster,” Dahlin said of the game’s pace. “I learned how a regular-season game is. I’m just looking forward to the next game. We’ve got to do better.”NOTES: Boston improved to 5-2 in games after opening the season with a shutout loss. … The Sabres have only 10 players on the roster who played in Buffalo’s season opener last year, and just six from the 2016-17 opener. … At 18 years and 175 days Womens Patrick Marleau Jersey , Dahlin is the second-youngest player to open a season in Buffalo, behind only 1987 No. 1 pick, Pierre Turgeon (18 years, 41 days). … Bruins RW Chris Wagner, who played 13:10 against Washington, was scratched and replaced in the lineup by LW Anders Bjork.UP NEXTBruins: Home-opener against Ottawa on Monday.Sabres: Continue four-game homestand against New York Rangers on Saturday. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) With their latest run, the NHL-best Tampa Bay Lightning have reached a new milestone: first in the league to 100 points.Nikita Kucherov scored the tying goal in the third period and converted in the fourth round of the shootout, and Tampa Bay beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 on Saturday. The Lightning improved to 9-0-1 in their last 10 games, with six victories coming in overtime or in the shootout.”You have to give credit to the guys. They’ve found a way to get points and that’s what you have to do,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.Kucherov scored his 33rd of the season with 6:17 left in regulation, standing on top of the crease to convert a pass from Steven Stamkos to beat Antti Niemi and force overtime. It was the seventh time in the past eight games that the Lightning were tied at the end of regulation.The Canadiens – third-worst in the Eastern Conference with 62 points – gave the Lightning all they could handle Rasmus Andersson Jersey Womens , never trailing in the game. Montreal kept in check a Tampa Bay team that had scored three or more goals 14 times in its previous 15 games.”I don’t want to make it sound like I’m OK with losing because I’m not and we’re not,” Montreal coach Claude Julien said, ”but I appreciated the effort this afternoon. I thought our guys played hard and we really pushed.”Artturi Lehkonen put Montreal in front early with a power-play goal on a one-timer after the rebound of Charles Hudon’s shot was blocked and landed right in his path at 4:10 of the opening period. Germany Tyler Johnson responded with his 20th of the season, also on the power play, at 13:43 to tie the game.Alex Galchenyuk put the Canadiens back in front at 3:00 of the second period after Ryan McDonagh, playing his first game with Tampa Bay since being acquired from the New York Rangers on Feb. 26, had his cross-ice pass intercepted by Hudon, which led to a 3-on-1 break the other way.But Montreal was unable to create more separation, failing to convert on a pair of third-period power-play chances.”You have to make sure to capitalize on those chances and get a two-goal lead,” former Lightning winger Jonathan Drouin said. ”Especially when you’re playing a team like that with so much offense and so much power. We just couldn’t get it done.”The Lightning found a spark when J.T. Miller, acquired from the Rangers at the trade deadline, was moved onto the line with Stamkos and Kucherov to start the third period. On the tying goal William Nylander Jersey , Miller forced a turnover behind the net to get the puck to Stamkos.”If you told me a while ago I would have been playing on a line with those two, I would have laughed,” said Miller, who has two goals and six points in six games since the trade. ”It’s a heck of an opportunity. It makes my job easy playing with those guys. Fortunate to get one in the third there and come out with the win.”NOTES: The Lightning reached the 100-point mark for the fifth time in franchise history. … Montreal C Phillip Danault missed the first 10 minutes of the third period and played just two shifts total. .. Tampa Bay G Louis Domingue started his seventh game of the season with the Lightning, his first at home. … Germany Tyler Johnson became the sixth player to reach 20 goals this season for Tampa Bay, which includes Vladislav Namestnikov, who was traded to the New York Rangers on Feb. 26. … Lightning D Ryan McDonagh appeared in his first game since Feb. 7, logging 19 minutes, 15 seconds of ice time in his Tampa Bay debut.UP NEXTLightning: Host Ottawa on Tuesday.Canadiens: At Columbus on Monday.—
