- Goal: On another power play, 4-on-3, Krejci with a slap-pass shades of Derek Morris, through the slot to Recchi his third of the playoffs and 53rd of his postseason career. -75–128
- Another reason how the NHL officiating has sucked throughout the playoffs. Milan Lucic got yanked for roughing, but it was Buffalo’s Adam Mair who cross-checked Kreji and unloaded a few shots to the back of No. 46’s head. And just seconds later, on the PK, Marco Sturm got held up — literally — at center ice by Jason Pomminville, as No. 16 and his speed would have had a clear-cut breakaway.
- Is Wideman regressing back to his old-self? He’s only accounted for one giveaway (Wideman owes the NHL stat keeper dinner) Skating backwards and on his heels, No. 6 tried to clear the puck up the middle. But Sabres’ forward Tim kennedy intercepted the clear attempt, dished it to BC alumni Nathan Gerbe, who threaded it perfectly to a crashing Patrick Kaleta. After that goal, it was all Buffalo.
- Vanek, who leads all Sabres with three shots on goal tonight, undressed Wideman on the Bruins blue-line for a semi-breakaway. But Rask comes up big once again, one of his seven saves of the period, and 18 of 19 in the game.
- Boston is now 6-for-19 (31.6%) on the power play in this series, and have successfully killed-off all 20 times short.
