A look at the sights and sounds of Sabres-Bruins in Boston

By John Vogl

The Sabres will return to practice today, and their focus will be on Friday's season-altering matchup with the New York Rangers, the team they're chasing for the playoffs. Before that, it's worth reliving some of the Sabres' emotional visit to Boston on Wednesday for the first sporting event in the town since Monday's marathon bombing.

Fans and players chose to embrace the sporting diversion rather than worry about another act of terror.

“You can’t live in fear,” said 27-year-old Jason Baylor of Arcade, who traveled to Boston. “I don’t worry about the bombing. I go about my everyday life like I normally would.”

The line separating one team from the other disappeared as soon the game ended. The euphoria of a shocking comeback victory faded for Buffalo. The disappointment of letting a win slip away took a back seat for Boston.

“We’ll enjoy this for the moment and try to reflect on what we were part of because this is a pretty big day for Boston as everyone starts to recover,” Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller said after a 3-2 shootout victory.
