The Bruins gave up the first goal for the 14th time this season on Thursday night when the Buffalo Sabres scored a first-period shorthanded goal.

A turnover at the blue line gave Sabres forward Brian Flynn a clear path toward the Bruins net, and he capitalized on the scoring chance with an impressive shot that beat B’s goalie Chad Johnson high-glove side.

Boston bounced back with a much better second period to go into the final frame tied 2-2 after a pair of goals from Brad Marchand.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.



Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
