BOSTON (AP) - Chris Drury scored twice and Martin Biron made 33 saves to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

Biron, starting in place of all-star goalie Ryan Miller for the second straight game, beat Boston for the second time in three days. He had 25 saves in Buffalo's 7-1 home win Tuesday, helping the Sabres snap a three-game losing streak.

Biron has won five straight starts against Boston, and the Sabres are 5-0-1 against the Bruins this season.

After allowing an early goal to Marco Sturm, Biron was perfect. He stopped 14 shots in the second period and 12 more in the third.

Daniel Briere had two assists, and Jason Pominville added a goal for the Sabres, who lead the Eastern Conference with 74 points despite going 6-7-1 in January. It was Buffalo's worst month since December 2003.

Buffalo trailed 1-0 after the first period, but Drury scored twice in the second to give the Sabres the lead for good.

Pominville extended the advantage to 3-1 early in the third.
