The Buffalo Sabres beat the Montreal Canadians 3-2 in overtime. Montreal's Eric Cole scored the only goal in the 1st period. Buffalo's Tyler Ennis scored the only goal in the second period to tie the game. The 3rd period was a bit more exciting. Tyler Ennis scored his 10th goal of the year early in the 3rd and Buffalo held the lead the entire period until Montreal's David Desharnais scored to tie to up with only 5 seconds left in regulation. Then enter Tyler Myers for Buffalo who scored the winning goal 2:01 into OT.
