Detroit Red Wings Pull Within 1 Point of Clinching, Beat BUF 4-2

  The Detroit Red Wings take the last game of the season series against the Buffalo Sabres 4-2, sweeping them in the season series, and pulling to within 1 point of clinching a playoff berth.

Bruins’ Rust, Mistakes Outweigh Positives In Overtime Loss To Sabres
