The Boston Bruins peppered 45 shots on Buffalo Sabres goalie Andres Lindback but could get only one past him. It meant a frustrating 2-1 loss in a shootout.

Louie Eriksson scored the B's lone goal about halfway through the first period and that was it.

Boston does get one point in the standings for the regulation tie but Ottawa won its game and pulls to within five points of the Bruins for that last playoff spot in the east.
