Sabres Shock Bruins in Boston

BOSTON -- Dominik Hasek stopped 29 Boston shots and Miroslav Satan had two goals and an assist as the Buffalo Sabres continued their recent dominance over the Bruins with a 5-0 win.


It was the first shutout of the season and the 21st of his career for Hasek.


The Sabres, who entered the game Thursday in last place in the Northeast Division with the fourth fewest points in the league, won their sixth straight game against Boston. Buffalo swept the season series last year, outscoring the Bruins, currently in second in the division, 22-5.


Alexei Zhitnik, Wayne Primeau and Donald Audette added goals for the Sabres, who snapped a five-game winless stretch at 0-3-2.


Devils 5, Islanders 1. In East Rutherford, New Jersey, the Devils won a team-record eighth straight game as Bobby Holik scored twice in a 5-1 win over the New York Islanders.


Martin Brodeur had 27 saves in winning his 12th straight game, a team record, and posting a league-high 15th victory this season.


Doug Gilmour, Petr Sykora and Denis Pederson also scored as the Devils won for the 11th time in 12 games in a feisty game that featured four fights.


Zigmund Palffy had a short-handed, first-period goal for the Islanders.
