Buffalo Sabres Win Third Straight
The Buffalo Sabres overcame a third period shorthanded goal and rallied to beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2 in a shootout Sunday night at First Niagara Center. Patrick Kaleta and Steve Ott scored the Buffalo goals, while Nathan Gerbe scored the only goal in the shootout to give Buffalo its third straight win.
Ryan Miller stopped 37 of 39 shots in regulation and stopped all three New Jersey attempts in the shootout.
So even without their recently traded captain Jason Pominville and their leading scorer Thomas Vanek, out with an injury, the Sabres have found a way to win.
The Sabres are in Winnipeg on Tuesday night.
