Brett Connolly, Joonas K emppainen and Ryan Spooner also scored for Boston. The Bruins improved to 3-0 on the road t his season to go along w ith an 0-3-1mark at home. Jonas Gustavsson, starting in place of the struggling Tuukka Rask, finished with 23 saves to i mprove to 2-0. David Krejci had an empty-netter with 2:25 remaining for his league- l eading 12th point (five g oals, seven assists), giving him a point in seven straight games. Josh Bailey, Casey Cizikas Thomas Hickey s cored for the Islanders. Lightning 4, Jets 3, OT: Ondrej Palat scored 36 seconds into overtime a nd the Tampa Bay Lightn ing beat the Winnipeg Jets.

NHL ROUNDUP Pastrnak breaks late tie, lifts Bruins ASSOCIATED PRESS Seeing that the Roche ster Americans are cel- e brating their 60th anni- v ersary, now might be a g ood time to point this out: Not all of the previous 59 seasons went well. Some were really bad. Take 1969-70, for instance, when the Amerks were an American Hockey League-worst 18-3816. Or 2007-08, when two parent teams, the Buffalo Sabres and Florida Panthers, couldn’t field half a roster worthy of the AHL a nd the Amerks won only 29 games. And even last season, as the NHL Sabres tanked, the Amerks won only 29 games and were 27th in a 30-team league. Why the look back on horrible seasons now? B ecause Friday’s 8-2 loss on home ice to the Toron- t o Marlies had all the makings of the worst of the worst. There was little drive, t here was little passion and there were no saves. “If they’re not embarrassed, then I don’t know what,” Amerks coach R andy Cunneyworth s aid. “Nobody should come into our building and school us like that.” What’s truly alarming: it’s not like this debacle c ame sneaking up in s tealth mode. The Amerks performance was very similar in Utica on Wednesday, but their goalie, Linus Ullmark, b ailed them out. The C omets outshot Rochester 47-14 but Ullmark was sensational, making 43 saves in a 4-2 loss that included an empty-net g oal. Then there were back- to-back 5-2 and 6-2 losses in Newfoundland to the St. John’s IceCaps last weekend. And those were o n the heels of a 2-1vic- tory on home ice on Oct. 10, when Utica was the dominant team (a 39-22 s hot advantage) but Ullmark refused to lose. Tradition says the 60th a nniversary is celebrated with diamonds. Would you believe coal? “Tonight ... not good,” veteran forward Matt Ellis said. “This has nothing to do with systems and e verything to do with the e ffort and the pride.” Let’s look at the season so far: A 2-4 record, four s traight losses, outscored 27-16 and outshot 228-147. “ We have the skill in here to be a good team,” center Tim Schaller said. S ometimes teams hold players-only meetings at t imes like this. Ellis said there has “been talk already. We have a room f ull of guys that have been around. It comes down to doing not say- ing.” Cunneyworth sure wishes they would start doing. And listening. “You go in between periods and suggest what we can do to be better and it falls on, it seems, deaf ears,” he said. M aybe the game would have been a whole lot different if goalie Nathan Lieuwen made saves early or late. The Marlies led 3-0 before the game was seven minutes old. When Nikita Soshni- kov went 5-hole on a shot t hat shouldn’t find the net at 3:57 of the third period, i t was 7-2 on only 27 shots against. Andrey Makarov then took over. Lieuwen hadn’t played s ince the Amerks opener, a6-3 win on Oct. 9. He then went to the Sabres and sat as Chad Johnson’s backup until Friday m orning when he and U llmark traded places. He said inactivity had nothing to do with his play. “I don’t think there’s a ny excuse; there isn’t,” L ieuwen said. “I definitely wasn’t good enough.” Even if Cunneyworth agreed, he deflected the blame better than his for- w ards deflect shots. “ I’m not throwing it on him,” he said. “It’s a matter of allowing shots through bodies. We’re unaware of lanes. Words y ou use all the time, time and space; you give them room and they’re going to make a play. “We need better sticks, better bodies. T hey just schooled us in a lot of areas.” Diamonds, anyone? Maybe not. K EVINO@gannett .com AMERKS Amerks get ‘schooled’ on home ice by Toronto KEVIN OKLOBZIJA @KEVINODANDC Kevin's 3 stars 1.

The defenseman crossed the 500-point mark with a career-best five points and the Cana- diens beat the Buffalo S abres 7-2 on Friday n ight to run their season- o pening winning streak t o eight games. “Maybe, I just got lucky today,” Markov said after finishing with agoal and four assists. “It’s great to have eight wins, but tomorrow is another challenge.” The Canadiens are two victories away from matching the NHL record set by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1993-94 and matched by the Sab res in 2006-07. Brendan Gallagher joked that he was surprised Markov had so many points. “It’s a pretty undercover 500 points,” Gallagher said. “He’s pretty special, year after year. I t’s not every day that you get to see a guy put u p 500 points.” Gallagher and Dale Weise each scored twice, and Max Pacioretty and T orrey Mitchell also scored. Mike Condon made 34 saves, and P.K. Subban and Tomas Ple- kanec each had three ass ists. “ When they put up seven, it makes any goalie’s job easier,” Condon said. “It was really nice to see the offense exp lode tonight.” Matt Moulson and R yan O’Reilly scored for Buffalo, and Cody Franson had two assists. Chad Johnson allowed all sev- e n goals. “You’re playing a team that hasn’t lost a game all year,” Sabres defenseman Josh Gorges s aid. “You’ve got to play t he right way the whole way through and too many times tonight, collectively as a group, we just made mistakes.” M ontreal won for first time in four tries against B uffalo dating to Nov. 28, 2014. The Canadiens opened the scoring with 5 :25 left in the first period. Subban and Weise worked a 2-on-1against Jake McCabe that ended with Weise’s one-timer p ast Johnson.
