Bruins Stomp Sabres
(Buffalo, NY) -- Milan Lucic and Torey Krug each scored two goals as the Bruins powered past the Sabres, 5-2, at the First Niagara Center. Boston outshot Buffalo 34-16 and Boston goalie Chad Johnson made 14 saves. The Bruins have won three in-a-row to move to 6-2-0. Cody Hodgson and Nikita Zadorov lit the lamp in the loss. Krug says special teams were key.
Ryan Miller allowed five goals on 34 shots for Buffalo, which fell to 1-9-1. The Sabres have lost three straight since picking up their first win of the season.
Wings Lose To Senators
(Detroit, MI) -- The Red Wings lost 6-1 last night at Joe Louis Arena as the Ottawa Senators scored early and often. Jimmy Howard was pulled in the first period after giving up three goals on just eight shots, while Jonas Gustavsson turned aside 17 shots on goal. Todd Bertuzzi scored the lone goal for Detroit, which lost its third straight game. The Red Wings host the New York Rangers in an Original Six matchup Saturday.
Blackhawks' Kostka Out At Least One Month
The Chicago Blackhawks will be without defenseman Michael Kostka for at least the next month. The Blackhawks anticipate him to miss four-to-six weeks after a lower-body injury he suffered in practice on Tuesday. Kostka has only played two games this season and scored his first NHL goal last Saturday.
The Chicago Blackhawks are on the road tonight facing the Tampa Bay Lightning. Chicago has won two straight and five-of-six to move to 6-1-2 on the year. The Bolts saw a two-game win streak end on Saturday. Tampa Bay is 5-3 overall after the setback.
Blues Host Canucks Friday
(St. Louis, MO) -- The Blues return to the ice Friday night at home against Vancouver. St. Louis has been off since dropping a 4-3 shootout at Winnipeg last Friday. It was their second loss in three games after starting the season with four straight wins. The Blues are 5-1-1 overall. The Canucks snapped a two-game losing streak with a 5-4 overtime win against the Islanders on Tuesday.
