Brad Marchand registered the game-tying goal late in the third period and the game-winner in overtime on Thursday night to lead Boston past Buffalo 3-2.

Marchand was kept off the scoresheet for three consecutive games, but he broke out of the slump in a big way, saving the Bruins from an embarrassing loss to Buffalo. The Sabres managed just 15 shots compared to Boston's 37, but were somehow leading the slumping Bruins thanks to Jhonas Enroth's goaltending. Marchand has three goals and six points in 10 games so far.

Niklas Svedberg was required to save just 13 shots in the Bruins' 3-2 overtime win over Buffalo on Thursday night.

Svedberg improves to 2-2 on the season, but both wins have come against the awful Buffalo Sabres. With Tuukka Rask struggling, Svedberg might play a bit more in the early goings of the season until the reigning Vezina winner finds his dominant form, as evidenced by his start on Thursday. Don't expect the 25-year-old to make too much of a dent in Rask's playing time though.

Brad Marchand looks like he'll be available for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

He left Wednesday's practice early after he suffered an undisclosed tweak, but he's taking line rushes at the pregame warmup with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson.
Oct 30 - 6:53 PM

Patrice Bergeron will start Thursday's game with new linemates.

He skated between Chris Kelly and Simon Gagne during the pregame warmup. That trio was also together for Wednesday's practice.
Oct 30 - 6:51 PM

Niklas Svedberg will be in goal for the Bruins on Thursday against Buffalo.

He posted a 32-save shutout versus the Sabres on Oct. 18. Svedberg dropped a 3-2 decision to the Islanders in his last appearance.
Oct 30 - 3:24 PM

David Warsofsky may get a chance to see power-play time with Boston.

He was called up, along with Joe Morrow, when Torey Krug got injured. Warsofsky is looking forward to making an impact when he gets a chance to play. "For me it's an opportunity," he said. "That's how I'm looking at it, just take advantage of it."
Oct 30 - 10:01 AM

Reilly Smith was bumped to the fourth line during Wednesday's practice.

He skated alongside Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille. Smith had two goals and one helper in his first five appearances, but he has one assist in his last six outings.
Oct 30 - 9:53 AM

Brad Marchand "tweaked something" at practice on Wednesday.

He left the session early as a result and it's unclear if he'll be available for Thursday night's match against Buffalo. Consider him questionable for now and we'll look to update his status later.
Oct 30 - 9:50 AM

Boston has summoned David Warsofsky from AHL Providence.

He hasn't recorded a point in seven minor-league games this year, but he had a goal and an assist in six appearances with the Boston Bruins in 2013-14.
Oct 29 - 11:54 AM

Joe Morrow has been called up by Boston.

In five games with Providence of the AHL, he has one goal and one assist. Morrow was up with the big club for Saturday's game versus Toronto, but he was a healthy scratch.
Oct 29 - 11:52 AM

Torey Krug will be out of action for the next two to three weeks because of a broken finger.

The injury occurred during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Wild. Krug logged 24:07 of ice time and picked up an assist in the match. He has six points, including two goals, in 11 contests. The Bruins' back end continues to take a beating with the loss of Krug. Boston was already missing Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller.
Oct 29 - 11:47 AM

Milan Lucic registered a goal and an assist in Boston's 4-3 loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night.

His power-play marker gave the Bruins a 3-1 lead entering the third period, but the Wild stormed back with three unanswered goals to take the victory. Lucic was also credited with a game-high seven hits in the contest.
Oct 29 - 9:43 AM

Tuukka Rask did his best to hold off the surging Minnesota Wild, but he couldn't withstand the barrage in a 4-3 loss on Tuesday night.

Rask allowed four goals on 42 shots in a game where the Bruins were outplayed decisively by their opponent. The Finnish goalkeeper's record falls to 4-4-0 with the defeat while his GAA rises to 2.81 and his save percentage falls to .899.
Oct 28 - 10:30 PM

Seth Griffith scored two goals and added an assist for Bruins Tuesday night, but they were not enough to hold off the Wild in a 4-3 defeat.

Griffith has fit in exceptionally well on the team's top line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci and should be in that spot for the foreseeable future. Lucic also picked up a power play tally and an assist for Boston in the losing effort.
Oct 28 - 10:27 PM

David Krejci has picked up at least one point in six straight games entering Tuesday's contest against Minnesota.

He didn't earn a point in his first game back from injury, but he's notched a three goals and five helpers since then. Krejci currently leads the Bruins in scoring with eight points.
