Earlier in the week, the Buffalo Sabres said they were focusing on gaining momentum and consistency. However after snapping their three game losing streak Thursday against Florida, the Sabres fell on the road to Boston 2-1 Saturday night. 

The Bruins almost opened up the scoring less than a minute in when Chris Wagner beat Linus Ullmark. However it was ruled a no goal.

Just about ten minutes later, Wagner would put the Bruins on the board after Sabres defenseman Rasmus Dahlin would turn the puck over in the zone. 

Boston would add to their lead just two minutes into the second period when David Backes beat Ullmark on the two on one rush.

The Sabres would finally find the back of the net late in the third period when Rasmus Ristolainen would bring the puck into the zone himself and beat Tuuka Rask short side.

Boston out shot Buffalo 41-32. The Sabres were also 0 for 1 on the power play. 

Buffalo returns home Tuesday to face the New Jersey Devils.
