Tyler Seguin‘s big night didn’t have quite the party it could have, as the Bruins fell to the Sabres 7-4 on the Bruins forward’s 21st birthday.
Thomas Vanek was a big reason why, as the Bruins killer struck again. This time, he notched three goals during a five-point night that saw momentum swing after momentum swing finally wear down the B’s. Boston’s first loss at home this season (and first regulation loss) was one that fans might not soon forget, but the team will have to move on.
With another important divisional game looming, the B’s can’t linger on any bad blood. Then again, the next time these two teams meet should certainly be interesting.
