BOSTON - Loui Eriksson scored 2:14 into overtime, and the Boston Bruins rallied to beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 on Sunday night.
Dougie Hamilton scored twice for Boston, including a tying goal with 1:31 left in the third after the Bruins pulled goalie Tuukka Rask. Chris Kelly also scored for Boston, and defenceman Zdeno Chara had two assists.
Buffalo couldn't quite hang on after holding a 3-2 lead for most of the third period on Tim Schaller's first NHL goal. Schaller was recalled from Rochester earlier in the day and played his third career game 50 miles south of his hometown of Merrimack, New Hampshire.
Andrej Maszaros and Rasmus Ristolainen also scored for the Sabres, who were outshot 37-28.
