The Boston Bruins doubled their lead to 2-0 when David Krejci scored on a rebound during the first period of Saturday’s afternoon matinee against the Buffalo Sabres.

After defenseman Dougie Hamilton skated the puck in the attacking zone, Zdeno Chara got the puck at the point and fired a shot on net. Sabres goaltender Matt Hackett stopped that shot, but he couldn’t corral the loose puck and Krejci pounced on it to score with a backhand.

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.
