CHICAGO — Tyler Seguin scored the only goal in a shootout to give the Boston Bruins a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday in the only NHL regular-season matchup between the past two Stanley Cup champions. Chris Kelly and Nathan Horton scored in regulation for Boston, which gave coach Claude Julien his 300th NHL win.
Horton’s tying goal at 7:56 of the third sent the game to overtime. Boston goalie Tim Thomas denied three Blackhawks in the shootout. Patrick Kane and Bryan Bickell scored in regulation for Chicago. Kings 3, Flyers 2, OT In Philadelphia, Mike Richards had a triumphant return to Philadelphia, assisting on Jack Johnson’s overtime goal to lift Los Angeles to victory. Richards returned to Philadelphia for the first time since his shock trade in June. He was the Flyers’ captain and led them to the Stanley Cup finals in 2010. Justin Williams scored twice for the Kings and Johnson’s power play goal came 1:39 into overtime. Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk was whistled for tripping in the final moments of regulation, leading to the power play. Matt Carle and Daniel Briere scored for Philadelphia. Sabres 3, Penguins 2 In Pittsburgh, Nathan Gerbe and Luke Adam each had a goal and an assist as Buffalo beat Pittsburgh for the first time in almost two years. Drew Stafford also scored for the Sabres, who had won in regulation only once in their past 10 trips to Pittsburgh. The Penguins lost in regulation for the first time in six games this season. Pittsburgh’s James Neal scored for the third consecutive game, extending his NHL-leading goal total to five. Jordan Staal added a third-period goal. Still without Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh played this one Evgeni Malkin (knee), too.
