Zdeno Chara and Ryan Donato each scored in the first period to help the Boston Bruins to a 2-0 lead over the Sabres.

Zdeno Chara opened the scoring with his first goal of the season. It came on Boston's fifth shot of the period. It was the B's first goal of the season, after getting shut out by the Washington Capitals 7-0 last night. Brad Marchand and Charlie McAvoy recieved the assists on the game's first score.

Vladimir Sabotka took the first penalty of the game with under six minuted remaining in the opening stanza. The veteran forward was called for slashing, after getting a piece of David Pasternak who was skating towards the net in the offensive zone.

Marchand fed Ryan Donato at the front of the net to extend the Bruins lead to 2-0 late in the first. The forward's first goal of the season came on the man advantage. Patrice Bergeron was credited with the other assist for Boston.

Buffalo's first power play of the night came when Danton Heinen was called for slashing. He clipped Casey Nelson to draw the minor less than three minutes into the second period.
