Orchard Park, NY (SportsNetwork. Matt Light Jersey .com) - Marcus Thigpen had a punt return for a touchdown and Dan Carpenter hit four field goals as the Buffalo Bills pulled off a 21-13 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Kyle Orton went just 14-for-27 for 158 yards with an interception, while Fred Jackson added 71 yards on 20 carries for the Bills (8-6), who have won three of their last four games and also finished 4-0 against the NFC North this season. Buffalo was able to keep pace in the hunt for a wild card spot, and got some help thanks to losses by Miami and Houston. Pittsburgh and Baltimore currently hold the wild card spots with nine wins apiece. Aaron Rodgers had his worst game of the year, as he was a paltry 17-for-42 for 185 yards with two interceptions, along with a fumble on his final possession that turned into a safety. The Packers (10-4) had a five-game winning streak stopped and saw their lead in the NFC North trimmed to just one-half game over Detroit. The Lions are currently hosting the Vikings, and should they win, will have control of the division for the time being. Buffalo started the second half with the ball and the game tied, but took the lead on a 51-yard field goal from Carpenter. Anthony Dixon was able to convert a pair of short third downs on the drive. After forcing a Green Bay punt, the Bills got the ball back at their own 22 and the first snap saw Jackson go for 13 yards. Bryce Brown caught a short pass and took it 40 yards down to the Green Bay 19. The drive stalled there, though, and Carpenter hit a 35-yard field goal for a 16-10 advantage with 4:18 left in the third. The Bills then pulled off a big turnover, as Bacarri Rambo picked off Rodgers. However, they were unable to take advantage and had to punt. Once again, though, it was Rambo coming up with the big play as he again picked off Rodgers to give his team the ball back near midfield and that led to a 48-yard field goal from Carpenter for a nine-point lead with 9:23 to play. Green Bay was able to answer on its ensuing touch, as Rodgers guided his team on a 10-play, 66-yard drive that Mason Crosby finished with a 34-yard field goal to make it 19-13 with 4:51 to play. The Packers eventually forced a punt and got the ball back at their own 10 inside the two-minute warning. On the first play, though, Mario Williams was able to rush around the corner and stripped the ball out of Rodgers hands, and the ball fell into the end zone where Eddie Lacy picked it up. By rule, though, the ball was dead as soon as Lacy touched it and the Bills were awarded a safety, and Orton went into the victory formation after the team got the ball back. The first four possessions ended in punts before Green Bay was able to put points on the board on its third touch. Rodgers converted a 3rd-and-8 with a 19-yard scramble, which turned out to be the biggest gain of the drive. Crosby booted a 45-yard field goal to give the team a 3-0 lead with 4:27 to play in the first quarter. Buffalo then had to punt and Green Bay was forced to a three-and-out, but the Bills special teams came up with a big play. Thigpen fielded the ball at the 25 and cut it back to the left, racing down the sideline then cutting back right to get into the end zone for a 75-yard score and a 7-3 lead. Lacys first three carries on Green Bays next drive went for 15, 17, and 22 yards. An 11-yard catch from Randall Cobb down to the Buffalo 1 set up Lacys bull rush into the end zone for a 10-7 lead less than a minute into the second quarter. The Bills came right back to tie the game as a 10-play, 71-yard drive was finished on a 27-yard field goal from Carpenter with 8:04 to play in the first half. Crosby lined up for a 53-yard field goal attempt on the Packers next possession, but Williams was able to get a hand on the ball.

Rask stoned Max Pacioretty and Alex Galchenyuk on first period breakaways and went on to help the Bruins stretch their winning streak to six games with a 4-1 victory over the Canadiens on Wednesday night. His 35-save effort was only his third win in 15 career games against Montreal. "They had a couple of breakaways, but we kept it on the outside pretty good," said Rask, who ended Bostons five-game losing run against the Canadiens dating to last season. After weathering an all-out Montreal attack in the opening period, Carl Soderberg, Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic scored in the second as Boston capitalized on every Montreal mistake. Zdeno Chara also scored as the Bruins (43-17-5) improved to 9-1-2 in their last dozen games and extended a run without a regulation loss on the road to 11 games. "Hes been great all year," winger Brad Marchand, who had two assists, said of Rask. "Hes the guy we look to be big for us. "We didnt worry about anything thats happened in the past. Its more about how weve been playing lately. We focused on how we have to play." With 91 points, the Bruins moved to within one point of idle Pittsburgh for the Eastern Conference lead. They return to Boston to face the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night. "Were in this building and they come at us with a full court press," said Lucic. "Tuukka kept us in there. "Whenever we can withstand that pressure it gives us a chance to win. We did that and we were able to get a few good shifts in at the end of the first that carried over into the second period." David Desharnais replied for Montreal (35-25-7), which has lost three in a row and is 3-4-1 without injured No. 1 goalie Carey Price since the Olympic break. Montreal outshot Boston 36-32. As dominant as the Bruins have been, they often struggle against the Canadiens and it showed in the first period as Montreal held a 13-6 shot advantage. "We felt good about how we pushed the play in the first period and wee wanted to play the same way," said coach Michel Therrien. Roger Craig Jersey. "Obviously, after their first goal, we have to respond better." Only 1:33 into the second frame, rookie Jarred Tinordi misplayed a puck off a faceoff and Soderberg was alone in front to score. Boston went on a counterattack after Andrei Markov fell and Bergeron finished off a give-and-go with Marchand at 9:25. Lucic bumped Alexei Emelin off the puck and then trailed in on a rush to score on a routine shot that got between Peter Budajs pads for his 20th of the season at 18:32. Chara got another only 23 seconds into the third when he broke in from the point and put in his own rebound. Montreal finally got one as Desharnais found the puck in a scramble with newcomer Thomas Vanek tying up traffic in the crease. It was Vaneks first point in three games since he was acquired in a NHL trade deadline deal last week. And it was Montreals first goal in seven periods since a 3-1 loss in Phoenix last Thursday. Therrien tweaked his lines in the third period, notably moving Vanek to the first line with Pacioretty, and will consider changes to help his team find the net. "Im trying to find a solution to scoring," he said. "Were creating chances, but we cant finish right now." The surprise number of the night was 24:03. That was the ice time of Montreal defenceman Francis Bouillon, which led all players both teams. Bouillon, replacing injured Josh Gorges, was dressed for the first time since the Olympic break and had been a healthy scratch for eight games. He finished even in plus-minus. Notes: Galchenyuk played his 100th NHL game... Francis Bouillon was back in the Montreal lineup for the first time since Feb. 8, bumping Mike Weaver. Brandon Prust returned after missing seven games with an upper body injury. . . George Parros, Dale Weise and Rene Bourque were scratched. . . Boston sat Dougie Hamilton for a second game to make room for newcomer Andrej Mezsaros. Daniel Paille (concussion), Adam McQuaid (leg) and Dennis Seidenberg (torn ACL-MCL) are sidelined. ' ' '
