Bruins lose in overtime

BUFFALO — Matt D’Agostini scored on a partial breakaway just 22 seconds into overtime Buffalo won its second straight game following the Olympic break, defeating the Boston Bruins, 5-4.

Matt Moulson scored to forge a 4-4 tie with 53 seconds remaining in the third period after slapping home a loose puck after it caromed off the skate of Boston defenseman Johnny Boychuk. Buffalo then took advantage of an ill-advised pass from Loui Eriksson and D’Agostini gained a step on Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and backhanded the puck under the extended right pad of Chad Johnson (21 saves) to end the contest.

Brian Flynn and Latvian Olympian Zemgus Girgensons each scored and set up a goal and defenseman Tyler Myers also tallied for the Sabres.

Milan Lucic collected a goal and an assist and Brad Marchand scored his team-leading 20th tally for the Bruins, who fell to 7-1-2 in their last 10 games. Chara and Chris Kelly also scored and defenseman Torey Krug notched two assists.

With Moulson serving a double minor for high sticking, Krug deked Enroth to the ice and skated around the net before sliding the puck through the slot. Lucic unleashed a blast from the left circle before Enroth settled himself to give the Bruins a 4-3 lead at 9:43 of the third period.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Lucic, who picked up an assist on Chara’s tally, has scored three goals and set up four others during his five-game point streak. ... Marchand is riding a three-game goal-scoring streak and reached the 20-goal plateau for the third time in four seasons. ... Enroth improved to 1-4-2 in eight career appearances against Boston.
