Bruins Vs. Sabres Score Update: Bergeron Puts B's Over Buffalo In 4-3 Shootout Win

Patrice Bergeron had the only goal in the shootout, after the Bruins forced overtime to win 4-3, scoring twice in the third period to tie the game in the final regular season game Saturday afternoon.

He picked up the first Star of the Game as well, assisting on both of the goals that tied the game late in the third period. While he had two assists, Tyler Seguin picked up two goals in the game and finished the regular season as the leading scorer for his team with 29 goals.

Sitting close behind him was Brad Marchand who also nabbed a goal to put him at 28 goals and just one behind Seguin. He noted that he "let Seguin have it" at the end of the game.

Tim Thomas played another stellar game, stopping all three shots in the shootout and stopping 25-of-28 shots in regulation. He earned the regular season "First Star of the Game" Award before the game started.

The Bruins now await their opponent heading into the first round of playoffs. It will either be the Ottawa Senators (who lost to the Devils tonight) or the Washington Capitals.
