The Buffalo Sabres produced a final-period rally to defeat the Boston Bruins 4-2 in Friday's NHL action.

Dougie Hamilton's first NHL goal cancelled out Drew Stafford's opener before Rich Peverley put the Bruins in the lead going into the third.

However the Sabres came charging back, efforts from Tyler Myers, Christian Ehrhoff and Cody Hodgson sealing them victory and making sure they are still the only team to beat Boston in regulation this season.

The New Jersey Devils also rallied for victory, coming from 3-1 down to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-3.

After Travis Zajac put the Devils ahead, Wayne Simmonds, Mike Knuble and Matt Read scored to put the Flyers 3-1 up by the end of the first period.

But, after that it was all New Jersey, Alexei Ponikarovsky, Patrik Elias, David Clarkson and Steve Bernier all scoring. Ilya Kovalchuk provided three assists.

Dave Bolland, Marcus Kruger, Andrew Shaw and Niklas Hjalmarsson all found the target to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Tim Kennedy scored for the Sharks, but there was no stopping the Blackhawks, who remain unbeaten in regulation so far this season.

Craig Adams scored his first goal of the campaign - and then quickly added another - as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1.

Andrew Cogliano netted twice as the Anaheim Ducks won their third in a row, seeing off the Detroit Red Wings 5-2, while David Perron's double helped the St Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames by the same scoreline.

Elsewhere, the Dallas Stars beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 and the Los Angeles Kings were 2-1 winners over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
