BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) -- Jochen Hecht and the red-hot Buffalo Sabres hope to notch their sixth straight victory when they host the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

The Sabres have thrived offensively during their five-game run, scoring a total of 26 goals.

Hecht scored a goal and registered three assists Saturday as Buffalo rallied for a 6-5 triumph over Philadelphia.

Daniel Briere and J.P. Dumont each added a tally and two assists for the Sabres, who trail the first-place Ottawa Senators (42-15-5) by two points in the Northeast Division standings.

The Bruins hope to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders on Saturday.

Defenseman Brian Leetch scored the lone goal for Boston, which has dropped four straight and seven of its last eight.
