Len Redkoles/Getty Images(BUFFALO, N.Y.) — In the first meeting since Boston Bruins left winger Milan Lucic plowed over Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller 11 days ago, the Bruins and Lucic backed up their actions.

Only 83 seconds in, Lucic was challenged by Sabres (12-8-1) center Paul Gaustad and Lucic won that battle as well.  Both headed to the penalty box but Lucic got the best of Gaustad in the fight.

The Bruins (13-7-0) came back twice from two-goals down and Benoit Pouliot scored the deciding goal in the fifth round of the shootout, giving his team a 4-3 victory.

Boston has now won 10 straight games which is the most since it won 10 in a row from Dec. 12, 2008, to Jan. 1, 2009.
