Bruins 3, Sabres 1


‘Not only did Buffalo lose the game, they also appear to have lost winger Thomas Vanek with an upper body injury. With just over 10 minutes to go in the game, Vanek was rocked on a hit at the blueline by Boychuk that sent him crashing to the ice. Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff said Vanek was still being evaluated after the game, and didn’t know the full extent of the injury.’
