BOSTON - For the second straight game, the Bruins battled from behind to tie things in the third period. But for the second straight game, near misses and what ifs left the Bruins lamenting a frustrating loss.
Boston landed 37 shots on goal, had a penalty shot denied, and - also for the second straight game - saw a goal wiped off the board by an early whistle. In the end, it all added up to a 4-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night at TD Garden.
"At the end of the day, their best players outplayed ours, from the goalies to the top line," said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy. "Another tough one that we probably deserved points in, but we're not getting it."
