 3-2 on Thursday night.

 

Despite being third in the Eastern Conference and winning six of nine coming in, the Islanders saw this game as a measuring stick because Boston has only lost one home game in regulation. “They are so tough at home,” Barzal said. “For us to stay level with them all night, says something about this group.”

 

Varlamov had 27 saves as New York snapped a seven-game losing streak to Boston. He made a highlight-reel save with 3:33 remaining in the second period. He dove across the crease and robbed

“If he shot that 10 times, he would have scored nine of 10. It was important to win this game and get our confidence back after game against Nashville.”

 

New York lost 8-3 Tuesday to the Predators and have now won four of five.

"Obviously, we gave Holts no chance," Ovechkin said. "We left him alone in the first 10-11-12 minutes, take penalties, made bad plays. ... You can see the last two periods how we played, to have chances to come back. But in the first period we lost the game."

Before the announcement could be completed, Coyle brought the puck out from behind Holtby and Bjork slapped it in to make it 3-0. Bergeron tipped in a shot from Pastrnak on a 5-on-3 advantage with a minute left in the period to give Boston a 4-0 lead.

"It's one of those things where at times the puck's going in, you get some puck luck and other times it doesn't," Bergeron said.

"We were really angry after the second period," Sabres coach Ralph Krueger said. "That was good that the group came back out and fought and tried to turn it, but it wasn't there. I've seen Halak play very well. He was our goalie at the World Cup and he really had a good game today."

“There’s obviously a lot of emotions going on. You care and take pride in yourself,” DeBrusk said. “It’s one of those things where I’ve kind of been in that situation before. You never want it to happen as a player, but usually I respond pretty well. It was nice to get the two goals there.”

 

Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said it’s a message he needs to send sometimes when someone isn’t playing well.

 

“I think internally, the message you usually send, as long as it’s not personal -- you’re trying to get them to play the right way,” Cassidy said. “(You) give them an opportunity to play their way out of it. It’s not like we buried him the rest of the game.

 in the penalty box serving a double minor for two separate penalties on the same shift -- one for tripping and the other for hooking -- DeBrusk scored his power-play goals.

 

On the first, he circled the net and tipped Steven Kampfer’s shot past Ullmark at 2:37. The second came when DeBrusk fired a tough-angle shot from the left wing that hit the goalie’s right pad and popped into the net inside the near post.

 

“They got two big goals,” Ristolainen said. “That was a big thing tonight -- special teams.”

 

Pastrnak double shifted, skating with his regular line -- the team’s top one -- and on the second in place of DeBrusk for a large portion of the opening period.

 

Rask made a couple of big stops in the final three minutes.

 

With an extra skater on due to a delayed penalty, Lazar’s goal sliced it to 3-2 at 5:08 of the third period. Lazar also hit the crossbar with just more than seven minutes to play.

 

Facing each other again after Boston won 3-0 in Buffalo on Friday, the Sabres seemed a bit more energized at the start, holding the Bruins without a shot on goal for more than 11 minutes into the opening period.

 

But the Bruins took a 1-0 lead when Pastrnak converted on their second shot, firing a wrister past Ullmark after taking a cross-ice pass from

"There were a lot of accusations after the game that I didn't know what I was doing out there," Severson said.

Far from it. By closely watching, Severson saw that Halak was flashing a strong glove in the shootout. It was time for a change of pace.

 

"I figured if I could make a good fake and go backhand and get it upstairs, I'd have a better chance to score," Severson said. "Ultimately it went in. That was a big one. It felt good."

 

It was his second career shootout score, and it lifted the Devils to a second straight win as they rallied from a two-goal deficit.

Boston extended the lead to 2-0 at 4:27 of the second as Nordstrom jammed the puck past Blackwood in a goal-mouth scramble.
