Patrice Bergeron’s First-Period Goal Gives Bruins Early Lead Vs. Sabres (Video)

The Boston Bruins fell into an early deficit Saturday night against the Buffalo Sabres, but Matt Beleskey and Patrice Bergeron quickly changed that.

Beleskey tied the game at TD Garden in the first period with a tip-in goal, and Bergeron gave Boston an early lead when his wrist shot found the back of the net minutes later.
