The Buffalo Sabres walked away from a tough road trip with three out of a possible four points, as they capped things off with a 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins Sunday. 

After a scoreless first period, Buffalo lit the lamp early in the second, when Jack Eichel dropped a pass from behind the net to Jeff Skinner who beat Tukka Rask.

 However, the Bruins would answer back exactly two minutes later, when Steven Kampfer fired home a one timer off a feed from Joakim Nordstrom.

Eichel would dazzle once again early in the third period, with a deja-vu esque goal from the night before in Washington, to give the Sabres the 2-1 lead.

However, with less than seven minutes to play, Torey Krug would finish off a one-timer to beat Linus Ullmark to tie the game at two goals a piece. 

Eichel and Skinner would once again combine for a gorgeous goal just three minutes later to put the Sabres up for good. Skinner’s 24th goal ties his season total from 2017. 

Eichel would cap the night off with an empty net goal. The captain now has 45 points on the season. Sam Reinhart finished the night with three assists.

Buffalo now sits second in the Eastern Conference with 45 points. They return home to face Florida on Tuesday.
