Despite being up 3-1 in the third period, the Sabres were unable to come up with a victory in the team’s final game of the season.

Four goals were scored within a span of 5:13 in the 3rd period, two by each team. The Bruins battled back from two goals down and went on to win the game in a shootout.

Tim Thomas earned the win, stopping 25 of 28 shots on the day. At the other end, Jhonas Enroth stopped 37 of 40 shots, including five in overtime.

Brad Boyes scored twice for Buffalo, but couldn’t complete the hat trick. The Sabres failed to have a player record a hat trick all season, making it the first time in franchise history in which that has happened.

On a positive note, a member of the Sabres did set an NHL record today. Cody Hodgson set a new NHL record by playing in 48 road games this season.

Now, there is nowhere to look to except next season.

The Sabres had a tough stretch of games this year, that included a 12 game road losing streak. Still, the team battled back, but fell just short in the playoff race.

After such an inspiring, comeback win against Toronto this week, that turned out to be the final home game of the season for Buffalo.

The Sabres’ season has come to an end, but that doesn’t mean our coverage on the Sabres will stop any time soon. The staff at SHC thanks its readers for all of their support. Thanks for making this an exciting season!
