Bruins cap a good day for Boston
The Bruins did their bit to contribute to a good day for Boston sports fans as they beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-2 for their third straight win.
On the day the Red Sox won game one of the World Series, Milan Lucic and Torey Krug scored two apiece for the surging Bruins in a convincing victory.
Lucic also added an assist and Dougie Hamilton scored the other goal for the Bruins, who lost Loui Eriksson to a head injury in the third period.
Jason Spezza scored twice as he helped Ottawa beat the Detroit Red Wings and the man he replaced as Senators captain 6-1.
Bobby Ryan also had two goals to help spoil the evening of Daniel Alfredsson, who was facing his old team for the first time since joining Detroit.
