Sabres Win Fifth Straight At Home
It was the Tyler and Tyler show at First Niagara Center Monday night. Tyler Ennis scored twice in regulation while Tyler Myers scored in overtime to give the Sabres a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens for Buffalo's fifth straight win on home ice. It moves the Sabres to within two points of Washington for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with 12 games left to play.
The Canadiens forced overtime when they pulled their goaltender for an extra skater and it worked when they scored the tying goal with 3.5 seconds left in regulation. The Sabres just went back to work and got the game winner when Derek Roy spotted a wide-open Tyler Myers for the winning shot.
Ryan Miller stopped 26 shots to improve to 9-1-1 in his last 11 games.
The Sabres have 12 games left to play. They host Colorado Wednesday night.
