BOSTON (AP) _ Martin Biron gave Miroslav Satan and the rest of the Buffalo
Sabres a chance to end their road winless streak.
Satan scored two late goals, and Biron made 23 saves to help Buffalo snap a
six-game road winless streak with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on
``They had a very good start to third and held us without a shot for 13
minutes,'' Satan said. ``But Biron kept us in the game and we need to focus on
a game like tonight so we can be more successful on the road.''
Buffalo ended a three-game losing streak and won for only the second time in
its last six games. The Sabres also ended Boston's six-game home unbeaten
``This game is a sign that we feel more confident,'' Biron said. ``We didn't
quit and after they tied it. We weren't going to let the game get away from
Satan gave Buffalo a 2-1 lead with 6:20 left, beating goalie Andrew Raycroft
with a wrister from the slot on the Sabres' first shot on goal in the period.
Satan added an empty-net goal, his 17th goal of the season, with 1:10 to go to
make it 3-1.
Mike Knuble completed the scoring, beating Biron with 5.5 seconds left.
Knuble has 14 goals this season.
``They did the same thing to us that we did to them in Buffalo the other
night,'' Knuble said. ``We had a pretty emotional series with the Rangers and I
wouldn't say we had a letdown, but we weren't playing our best.''
The Bruins beat Buffalo 1-0 last Thursday and swept a home-and-home series
with the Rangers their previous two games.
Boston's Glen Murray tied it at 1 at the 8:11 mark of the third with a soft
shot through goalie Biron's pads.
``We were flat the whole game,'' Murray said. ``They are a desperate team,
no question. A team that needs points badly.''
Rory Fitzpatrick gave Buffalo a 1-0 lead when his slap shot from the blue
line beat Raycroft at 11:35 of the first period.
Raycroft kept the Bruins in the game when he foiled a pair of great
opportunities for Buffalo through the first two periods. He robbed Milan
Bartovic on a breakaway midway through the first period, and made a pad save on
Derek Roy in the second.
