BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Buffalo Sabres try to extend their unbeaten streak to eight games when they meet the Boston Bruins on Saturday in a matchup Northeast Division rivals.

Buffalo, which has won its last 12 regular season games, won its seventh straight to open the season on Friday when it outlasted the defending Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, 5-4.

Defenseman Jaroslav Spacek scored the game-winner when his shot from just inside the blue line deflected off Carolina defenseman Tim Gleason past goaltender Cam Ward midway through the third period.

Maxim Afinogenov, who led the Sabres with two goals and an assist, has two goals and six assists for eight points in his last two games.

The Bruins finally played their first home game on Thursday and emerged with a 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames.

Glen Murray led the Bruins with two goals as they snapped a three-game losing streak. Brad Boyes scored the other Boston goal while Marc Savard had two assists. Bruins netminder Hannu Toivonen finished with 26 saves.

Boston went 1-for-3 on the power play, but is only 4-for-33 (12.1 percent) this season.

The Buffalo game is the second of six straight home games for the Bruins, who opened the season with five straight road contests and were the last NHL club to play a home game.
