Bruins Score Update: Sabres Grab 1-0 Lead After First Period

On Thursday evening the Boston Bruins played host to the Buffalo Sabres in the fifth of six meetings between these two Northeast division foes for the 2011-’12 campaign. The B’s were out to put a stop to a streaking Sabres team that has caught fire recently, in hopes of putting together a last ditch run for the playoffs. Boston was also looking to put together their first set of back-to-back wins since January 12.

Despite more than doubling the Sabres first period shot total, the Black and Gold found themselves down a goal as the two squads went to the rooms for the first intermission.

It was Buffalo captain Jason Pominville who would give his team a 1-0 advantage at the 16:39 mark of the opening frame when he beat Tim Thomas glove side with a slapshot from the left circle. The score would remain 1-0 through the end of the period despite a power-play for each team.
