A pair of power-play goals from Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk broke a 1-1 tied in the third period and stood as the difference in a 3-2 loss for the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden on Sunday.
DeBrusk’s goals were scored 18 seconds apart after Johan Larsson was assessed concurrent minor penalties at the 1:23 mark of the period. David Pastrnak also scored for the Bruins, while Tuukka Rask made 24 saves.
Rasmus Ristolainen and Curtis Lazar scored goals for the Sabres. Linus Ullmark made 19 saves.
The Sabres controlled the first period to the tune of a 7-2 shot advantage. The Bruins’ second shot, however, came off the stick of Pastrnak on a 2-on-1 rush to open the scoring with 7:21 remaining.
