Frank Vatrano Fires Bullet, Gets Bruins On Board Vs. Sabres In First Period


Frank Vatrano certainly made a statement when he put the Boston Bruins on the board against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

The B’s struck first in the second half of their home-and-home series with their division rival, and it was an absolute bullet off the stick of Vatrano. Zdeno Chara started things off when he muscled the puck into the Sabres’ zone before the 22-year-old forward found open ice and sent it sailing over Buffalo goaltender Robin Lehner’s right shoulder.

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.
