Krejci, Horton score third-period goals, Khudobin stops 26 in Bruins 2-0 win over Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. - David Krejci and Nathan Horton scored goals less than three minutes apart in the third period, and Anton Khudobin stopped 26 shots in leading the Boston Bruins to a 2-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night.

Krejci broke open a scoreless game during a scramble in front with 7:06 remaining, and after Horton was stopped twice from in close by Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller. Krejci then returned the favour by setting up Horton for a tap-in in front with 4:16 left in helping Boston win for only the third time in eight games (3-4-1).

Khubodin earned the second shutout of his career, while the Bruins improved to 2-5 in their last seven road games.

The Bruins (22-8-4) closed to within a point of Northeast Division-leading Montreal in the standings.

In dropping to 0-2-2 in their past four, Buffalo (13-17-6) fell into 13th place in the Eastern Conference standings.
