Anton Khudobin picked up his first shutout of the season and the Bruins got goals from David Krejci and Nathan Horton as they beat the Sabres, 2-0, Sunday night at First Niagara Center.

The win was Boston’s first in their last three games and gave them 48 points, which puts them one point behind the Canadiens for the Northeast Division lead. Both teams have played 34 games.

The game was scoreless through the first two periods before Krejci got the Bruins on the board by burying a rebound from a Horton bid in front. Matt Bartkowski sent the pass to Horton in the zone to set up the goal, giving him his first NHL assist in 12 career games. Horton made it 2-0 shortly after by beating Ryan Miller in front off a feed from Krejci. Horton now has goals in three straight games and has 11 on the season.

Khudobin made 26 saves in the victory.

The Bruins will return to Boston and host the Senators Tuesday at TD Garden.
