BUFFALO, N.Y. — Drew Stafford scored the winning goal in the third period, and Ryan Miller made 34 saves in the Buffalo Sabres’ 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

Marcus Foligno and Brian Flynn both had a goal and an assist, and Tyler Myers also scored for Buffalo, which has won consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 15.

Brad Marchand scored both Bruins goals, and Chad Johnson allowed four goals on 23 shots.

Stafford’s first goal in 18 games was of highlight-reel quality. He raced down the right side of the Boston zone and went around the net to score.
