Bruins lose in overtime


BUFFALO — Matt D’Agostini scored on a partial breakaway just 22 seconds into overtime Buffalo won its second straight game following the Olympic break, defeating the Boston Bruins, 5-4.

Matt Moulson scored to forge a 4-4 tie with 53 seconds remaining in the third period after slapping home a loose puck after it caromed off the skate of Boston defenseman Johnny Boychuk. Buffalo then took advantage of an ill-advised pass from Loui Eriksson and D’Agostini gained a step on Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and backhanded the puck under the extended right pad of Chad Johnson (21 saves) to end the contest.

.
Brian Flynn and Latvian Olympian Zemgus Girgensons each scored and set up a goal and defenseman Tyler Myers also tallied for the Sabres.

Milan Lucic collected a goal and an assist and Brad Marchand scored his team-leading 20th tally for the Bruins, who fell to 7-1-2 in their last 10 games. Chara and Chris Kelly also scored and defenseman Torey Krug notched two assists.

With Moulson serving a double minor for high sticking, Krug deked Enroth to the ice and skated around the net before sliding the puck through the slot. Lucic unleashed a blast from the left circle before Enroth settled himself to give the Bruins a 4-3 lead at 9:43 of the third period.
..
GAME NOTEBOOK: Lucic, who picked up an assist on Chara’s tally, has scored three goals and set up four others during his five-game point streak. ... Marchand is riding a three-game goal-scoring streak and reached the 20-goal plateau for the third time in four seasons. ... Enroth improved to 1-4-2 in eight career appearances against Boston.
