Dominik Hasek became the Buffalo Sabres' winningest goaltender with his 157th win as a Sabre with a 4-2 victory over Boston Bruins.

"For eight million bucks he should be breaking all the records," said Sabres forward Matthew Barnaby of Hasek. "It's a great feat for him. I'm just glad he's doing it for us."

Curtis Brown's third period was the game winner as the Sabres extended their winning streak to three games. Dixon Ward, Miroslav Satan and Michal Grosek also scored for Buffalo.

"Some nights it's just really hard to score in this league," Brown said. "But we're getting the puck to the net and getting there for second and third chances."

Steve Heinze and Hal Gill scored for Boston. The Bruins were outshot 32-20 in the game, but managed to connect once on their power play which is fourth-ranked in the league.

"We should have made better shots and better decisions," said Bruins center Jason Allison. "We hit him in the pads, and it didn't matter who the goalie was. They're all going to save those."
