BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Milan Lucic had two goals and an assist, and Torey Krug also scored twice to help the Boston Bruins beat the reeling Buffalo Sabres 5-2 on Wednesday night.

Boston left wing Loui Eriksson had to be helped from the ice after a late hit from Sabres enforcer John Scott in the third period. Scott then fought Adam McQuaid and was given a match penalty.

Scott has been summoned by the NHL for an in-person hearing, and is likely to be suspended.

Nikita Zadorov and Cody Hodgson scored for Buffalo. At 1-9-1, the Sabres are off to their worst start in franchise history. They are winless in their first seven home games.

Chad Johnson made 14 saves for Boston, and Ryan Miller stopped 29 shots for Buffalo.
