Thanks To Jhonas Enroth great goaltending and Steve Ott 2 goal Performance the Sabres stole 2 points in Montreal with a 3-2 Overtime Win. Enroth who has played strong in his last 3 starts made 32 Saves on the night earning his 2nd win of the season. Enroth had to be strong in the 2nd and 3rd Periods primarily with the Sabres being outshot 26-8. Ott started the goal scoring when PK Subban gave the puck away at the Canadiens Blue Line and Ott ripped it inside the post at the 7:47 mark of the 1st Period. The Sabres jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period when Tyler Ennis tipped a Tyler Myers point shot with a minute left in the first.
Montreal picked up the tempo with strong play in the 2nd period out-shooting the Sabres 11-2 in the 2nd Period. The Canadiens finally got on the board after countless opportunities when Max Pacioretty netted his 9th of the season Enroth after the Sabres had trouble getting the puck out of the zone. Colby Armstrong would tie the game with 3:56 left in the 3rd Period after the Sabres were caught running around in the defense zone again.
The Sabres would get a glorious chance to win the game in overtime when recent callup Mark Pysyk got caught with a high stick from Canadiens defensemen PK Subban early in the overtime period. The Sabres would capitalize with 1 second left on that penalty when Ott slammed home a Jordan Leopold pass past Carey Price at the 2:16 mark of Overtime. Price got his 4th Overtime loss on the season stopping 18 of the 21 Sabres shots.
