The Bruins piled on a 4-0 lead before the Sabres responded late in the second, but they couldn't recover as Boston ran away with a 5-2 victory in Buffalo. The Bruins are now 5-0 on the road, which sets a franchise record for the team. Their 7-2 record ranks them second in the Northeast Division, just one point behind the Canadiens (7-4-1).
Also setting a franchise record on the night was goaltender Tim Thomas. Securing his seventh victory in as many starts, Thomas became the first Bruins goaltender in team history to reach that milestone. Heading into the matchup with the Sabres, Thomas was matched with Tiny Thompson, who won his first six starts in the 1937-38 season.
While the Bruins may have come away with a huge win in Buffalo, head coach Claude Julien said there were a few things his team needed to improve upon when maintaining a lead.
