BOSTON, March 8 (UPI) -- Tim Thomas blanked Buffalo over the final two periods Thursday, allowing the Boston Bruins to rally for a 3-1 victory over the Sabres.
Boston, which defeated Toronto Tuesday, has won back-to-back games for the first time in almost two months. Despite their struggles, the Bruins are still out front of the Northeast Division.

Thomas made 19 saves, 14 of them coming over the second and third periods. Jhonas Enroth allowed three goals on 28 shots.
