Sabres snap Bruins’ season-best 6-game win streak in 6-4 win

BUFFALO, N.Y. — (AP) — Sam Reinhart scored three times, including a game-sealing empty-netter, and the Buffalo Sabres avoided a third-period collapse and beat the Boston Bruins 6-4.

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen stopped 36 shots in his NHL debut, and the Sabres ended the Bruins’ season-best six-game winning streak.

Boston scored three times in a 5:06 span, capped by Taylor Hall’s centering pass deflecting in off Buffalo defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen’s stick with 2:48 remaining that cut the Sabres’ lead to 5-4.

Reinhart secured the win by scoring into an empty net with 42 seconds left.
