Sabres rally for Bruins win
The Buffalo Sabres scored three times in the final period to come from behind for a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins in Friday's NHL action.
Drew Stafford opened the scoring in the first period for the Sabres, but Dougie Hamilton levelled with his first in the NHL and a goal from Rich Peverley put the Bruins in the lead going into the third.
Buffalo roared back in the third and goals from Tyler Myers, Christian Ehrhoff and Cody Hodgson sent them to victory.
The result means Boston have lost two games in regulation this season - both to the Sabres.
The New Jersey Devils also rallied for victory, coming from 3-1 down to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-3.
After Travis Zajac put the Devils ahead, Wayne Simmonds, Mike Knuble and Matt Read scored to put the Flyers 3-1 up by the end of the first period.
After that, though, it was all New Jersey and further goals from Alexei Ponikarovsky, Patrik Elias, David Clarkson and Steve Bernier gave them the win. Ilya Kovalchuk provided three assists.
Dave Bolland, Marcus Kruger, Andrew Shaw and Niklas Hjalmarsson scored to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.
Tim Kennedy scored for the Sharks, but there was no stopping the NHL-leading Blackhawks, who remained unbeaten in regulation this season.
Craig Adams scored twice as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1.
They were Adams' first two goals of the season, while James Neal also tallied.
Andrew Cogliano scored twice as the Anaheim Ducks won their third in a row, 5-2 over the Detroit Red Wings, while David Perron's double helped the St Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames by the same scoreline.
The Dallas Stars beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 and the Los Angeles Kings were 2-1 winners over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
