BOSTON (AP) — Chris Wagner had an extra reason to smile when he scored a goal after his first one was disallowed.“My grandfather passed away yesterday morning Tampa Bay Lightning T-Shirts Authentic , so this was a special game for me. Maybe he was watching out for me, having the puck follow me around,” the forward said after the Boston Bruins beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 on Saturday night.“He was probably laughing after that first goal was disallowed,” he said.David Backes also scored and Tuukka Rask stopped 31 shots for the Bruins, who posted their fourth straight victory.“He was hurting. As a team we feel for him,” linemate Noel Acciari said of Wagner. “That was pretty cool to see that go in.”Boston won three of four games in the season series against Buffalo.Rask was looking for his first shutout of the season, but former Bruins’ defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen beat him with a wrist shot on the glove side with 2:38 left in regulation.The 31-year-old Rask seems as if he’s found his game again after a rough start to this season saw the No. 1 goalie sharing more time with backup Jaroslav Halak.“He does look comfortable, maybe part of that is he’s getting more reps in the net,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. “He’s certainly earning them. . It appears to be his time of year, off he goes and we’re just going to ride it. If that what he brings, awesome.”Sabres star Jack Eichel missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury. He’s expected to be re-evaluated early next week.“They play their system very well and it’s a hard building to play in,” Ristolainen said. “We’ve got to understand it’s not going to be easy for 60 minutes for us. We couldn’t create enough today.”Linus Ullmark made 39 saves for Buffalo, which has won just once in its last five games.The Sabres pulled Ullmark with just over a minute left for an extra skater, but were unable to get a shot on goal.Backes played in his first game after serving a three-game suspension for an illegal check to the head on New Jersey Devils forward Blake Coleman.Wagner had a goal wiped out when Sean Kuraly was called for goaltender interference 20 seconds into the game, but the Boston winger scored just under 10 minutes later Tampa Bay Lightning Hoodies Authentic , firing a wrist shot past Ullmark’s glove to make it 1-0.Backes made it 2-0 when he finished off a 2-on-1 break by sending a wrist shot under the cross bar two minutes into the second period.Boston forward Jake DeBrusk didn’t shy away from a question after the morning skate when asked if it was too early to be called an important game between the clubs, which entered tied for third in the Atlantic Division.“No, I think anytime you play a division team it’s a big game,” he said. “These games mean a lot towards the end of the year.”The Bruins then went out and dominated in the second period, holding the Sabres to just two shots on goal in the opening 15-plus minutes. Boston had a 13-10 edge in shots in an entertaining first period filled with high-energy rushes. Rask was solid in the first and third, controlling rebounds and cutting down angles on most of the shots.Rask made a nice glove stop on Jeff Skinner’s backhander from the edge of the crease late in the second. He also made a right-pad stop on Skinner’s close bid early in the third.NOTES: Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said defenseman Charlie McAvoy, who missed his fifth straight with a lower-body injury, should be returning to practice this week. . Boston entered the game having allowed a league-high nine short-handed goals. Cassidy said he believes short-handed scoring is up overall in the NHL over the last few years because teams adopted the practice of playing four forwards on power plays, but he also admitted “ours are way too high.”UP NEXTSabres: Host New Jersey on Tuesday.Bruins: Host Minnesota on Tuesday. TORONTO (AP) — Martin Brodeur, Willie O’Ree and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman led the latest group of inductees to the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday night.Brodeur, the all-time leader in goalie wins and shutouts, was joined in the player’s category by Martin St. Louis, Canadian women’s star Jayna Hefford and Russian great Alexander Yakushev. Bettman and O’Ree — the NHL’s first black player — went into the Hall as builders.A three-time Stanley Cup champion and four-time Vezina Trophy winner with the New Jersey Devils, Brodeur won 691 games and had 125 shutouts in his 20 seasons.“This is a really special day for me,” Brodeur said. “I’m honored and humbled.”A two-time Olympic gold medalist for Canada Tampa Bay Lightning Hats Authentic , Brodeur shares or owns 12 NHL records.“He competed with a smile on his face,” said Devils teammate and class of 2013 inductee Scott Niedermayer. “He just embraced the big challenge. He wasn’t overwhelmed.”O’Ree became the first black player in the NHL when he was called up by the Boston Bruins to play against the Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 18, 1958. The 83-year-old, who had a long career in the minors, played just 45 games in the NHL, but returned to the fold in 1996 as a league ambassador.“All I wanted to be was a hockey player,” O’Ree said. “All I needed was the opportunity.”O’Ree is the third black player in the Hall, joining former Edmonton Oilers goalie Grant Fuhr and Canadian women’s national team captain Angela James.During Bettman’s 25-year tenure, the league has expanded from 24 to 31 teams with annual revenues ballooning tenfold to around $5 billion.“Everyone knows that my public appearances get an energetic reaction,” Bettman joked during his speech. “I get booed when I present the Stanley Cup, particularly to a road team, but even from the home team, and at the draft.“Tonight should erase any claim that election to the Hockey Hall of Fame is a popularity contest. Rather, I hope that my induction is a testament to what is clearly a collective contribution.”While the NHL has seen incredible growth during Bettman’s time at the helm, he’s also overseen three lockouts Custom Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys , including one that wiped out the entire 2004-05 season, with another work stoppage looming as early as 2020. Olympic participation and how the league has dealt with concussions have been among some of the other issues where criticism has been directed his way. Like former NHL presidents Clarence Campbell and John Ziegler, Bettman was enshrined while still in the top job.St. Louis went from undrafted free agent to Hart Trophy winner and two-time scoring champion with the Tampa Bay Lightning, including a Cup victory in 2003-04.“For all the kids out there listening: follow your dreams,” St. Louis said. “Believe in yourself. When it seems like all of the doors are closing, look for a window and find a way in.“The reason that some people don’t reach their full potential is that they quit too soon.”The 5-foot-8 St. Louis is one of just six undrafted players to reach 1,000 points and was on Canada’s men’s Olympic team that won gold in 2014.“His desire was infectious,” said 2017 inductee Dave Andreychuk, who captained the Lightning to their Cup victory in 2004. “His compete level was like no other.”Hefford won four Olympic gold medals and seven world championships playing for Canada. The sixth woman to enter the Hall, she had 157 goals and 134 assists in 267 games for her country.Yakushev starred for the USSR in the 1972 Summit Series, scoring seven goals to tie Canada’s Phil Esposito and Paul Henderson for the lead in the best-on-best showcase. He won Olympic gold in 1972 and 1976 and was elected to the International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Fame in 2003.
