Buffalo pulls off win over Boston

Once again the Sabres have been a streaky team this season, but were able to pull off a 4-2 victory over the very good Boston Bruins. The team was lead unexpectedly by Matt Ellis who had two goals and an assist in this game.

I really haven't been a fan of Ellis this season, and would rather see the roster spot go to one of our talents in the AHL. However Ellis has been better since he was last recalled from Portland. He was the obvious star of this game, and may go to show that management knew what they were doing when they claimed him from the Kings.

The other Sabres goals came from Paul Gaustad and Thomas Vanek, and then an impressive third period by Ryan Miller to keep the Bruins from coming back into the game.
