The Buffalo Sabres, who sit two points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with two games in hand, have added some scoring punch.

The club acquired forward Brad Boyes from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for a second round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

The 28-year-old has 12 goals and 29 assists in 62 games played.

Boyes is signed through the 2011-12 season and has a $4 million cap hit.

St. Louis, who are sitting 13th in the Western Conference, traded defencemen Eric Brewer and Erik Johnson earlier this month.
