As poorly as the Buffalo Sabres played Monday night in New Jersey, for most of two and a half periods Tuesday night against the San Jose Sharks they played even worse.  They were booed off the ice at the end of the second period.  But the Sabres scored three straight goals in a span of 3:29 to tie the game to send it to overtime where Evander Kane scored his second goal of the game to win it 5-4.

The Sabres were trailing 4-1 with 11 minutes left to play when Ryan O'Reilly scored on the power play, Evander Kane scored on a wrap around just as another power play expired and then Kyle Okposo scored off a feed from Sam Reinhart to make it 4-4.  At that point the Sharks were reeling and the Sabres had momentum.

In overtime Jack Eichel and Kane took off from their own end on a 2 on 1 break and Kane took a perfect pass from Eichel and roofed it to complete an incredible and improbable comeback against one of the best teams in the NHL this season.

The Sabres got on the scoreboard first with Matt Moulson's power play goal, but the Sharks took over control of the game after that with four straight goals to make it 4-1.  It looked like the Sharks would cruise to an easy victory and many people began leaving the arena.

The loss extended the Sharks record of futility in Buffalo.  In 19 all-time games in Buffalo, the Sharks have lost 17.  The victory also extends the Sabres record in their last seven games at home to 6-0-1.

The Sabres remain home to host Anaheim on Thursday night.
