Steve Ott's second goal of the game at 2:16 of overtime lifted the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday.
P.K. Subban was off after his stick clipped Mark Pysyk and, with two seconds left in the man advantage, Ott was at the doorstep to shovel in a rebound and give Buffalo its second win in eight games.
Ott and Tyler Ennis scored in the opening period for the Sabres, who are 5-5-3 under coach Ron Rolston since Lindy Ruff was fired Feb. 20.
The Canadiens entered the third period down 2-0, but got goals from Max Pacioretty and Colby Armstrong to tie the game and avoid only their second regulation loss in their past 18 games.

You may recall Buffalo Sabres noted dirty play guy Patrick Kaleta got suspended for five games for nearly breaking Mike Richards' neck against the boards. Upon his return from suspension, interim Sabres coach Ron Rolston benched Kaleta, as an extension of his punishment, presumably to send a point. I guess it kind of worked, because Kaleta was upset. Not necessarily remorseful...
Buffalo Sabres prospect forward Colin Jacobs has signed an amateur tryout contract with the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester.
From Coppell, Texas, Jacobs was the Sabres' fourth-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft. He was eligible to be signed by Rochester once his junior career ended last weekend, when Prince George failed to qualify for the Western Hockey...
That “beep, beep, beep” you hear out of the Buffalo Sabres’ dressing room would be Ryan Miller doing some backpedaling.
The Sabres goalie made headlines following Sunday night’s loss to the Washington Capitals, when he called out Buffalo forward Patrick Kaleta after Kaleta complained about being sat down after returning from a suspension. Miller said that Kaleta needed to...
Ron Rolston has little time to worry that his job title with the Buffalo Sabres is no different than his current place of residence: They're both temporary.
Having left his wife and two kids behind at home in Rochester, N.Y., the Sabres interim coach has spent the past month living out of a Buffalo hotel room. And the only way Rolston knows how to bring his life stability is...
So, this is how bad things have gotten for Tyler Myers: Once considered an untouchable in the Sabres organization, it's now gotten to the point where writers are lamenting that his contract has become an albatross for Darcy Regier.

He didn't name names, but Nick Kypreos said today that, despite what is considered to be a weak goaltending market, there would be plenty of interest in Ryan Miller if the Sabres wanted to move him. Continue reading "Kypreos: 6 Teams Would Love To Have Miller For Stretch Run"
Thomas Vanek isn't the only Sabre actively nursing an injury.
D-man, Reggie Sekera, was injured in the Ottawa game on Saturday. He'll likely be sitting out his third game in row when the Leafs blow into First Niagara Center on Thursday night.
Sekera's replacement, Mark Pysyk, has been a real breath of fresh air as it relates to the calmness and and patience that...
Playing 7on7 football does not give a runningback much of a chance to show his skills, but Detroit Cass Tech's Mike Weber is definitely a prospect of note for 2015. He was in action at last weekend's New Level Athletics 7on7 in Youngstown.
Do you ever get to the point where you are just over the drama of cheering for or booing a sports team? When everything starts to feel manufactured and you catch yourself getting worked up about something that really doesn't mean anything? Like, what is the point? When the discord is at its highest, sometimes you just feel kind of over it, especially when we've been through...
Patrick Kaleta talks after practice today.
Steve Ott had a Cheshire Catâs grin on his face when I spoke with him in the Sabres room this morning after the Sabres skated. He loves rivalry games like this one he ended in Montreal in OT with the PP GWG . He loves playing the Leafs, too.
He reminded me that his team enters tonight only six point out of eighth place in the Eastern standings. He told me that metaphorically...
I asked you earlier if Buffalo could make it two straight, and I received pretty much all negative responses.
It took 65 minutes and a six round shootout, but the Sabres came a way with a 5-4 victory over Toronto on Thursday night at the First Niagara Center.
Steve Ott was once again a huge factor for Buffalo, netting the game-winner in the shootout. Ryan Miller extended the...
