Sabres upend Canadiens in OT 3-2
BUFFALO 3, MONTREAL 2 (OT)

MONTREAL (AP) -- Jonas Enroth did what was needed to get the
Buffalo Sabres a win.



The Buffalo goaltender had stopped 32 shots - including 26 while
protecting a lead in the second and third periods - to help the
Sabres post a 3-2 overtime victory over the Montreal Canadiens
on Tuesday.



Steve Ott's second goal of the game at 2:16 overtime clinched
the victory after Montreal tied the score with a pair of
third-period goals.



"I was just trying to focus on the next shot, stay sharp,"
Enroth said. "It's huge for us and it's good we could finally
win a game with a power-play goal."



The shots didn't tell all of the story of Enroth's workload, as
the Canadiens had 24 more attempts that missed the net.



The 24-year-old doesn't get to play a lot behind No. 1 goalie
Ryan Miller, but got the start in Montreal largely because he
has never lost to the Canadiens. His record is 3-0-0 against the
Habs.



"It's actually 4-0 - I won an exhibition game up here too,"
Enroth said with a laugh. "It's always a lot of fun to play
here.



"They've got a really good team this year, so this was probably
the toughest win for me."



Enroth may see more action in coming days. The Sabres have won
only twice in their past eight games and Enroth was in net for
both. He subbed for a sick Miller in a 3-1 win over the New York
Rangers on March 12.



Ott and Tyler Ennis scored in the opening period for Buffalo,
which is 5-5-3 under interim 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.



But only 17 seconds into overtime, Montreal defenseman P.K.
Subban took an open-ice run at Mark Pysyk and missed, with his
stick catching the Sabres defenseman for a high-sticking
penalty.



Only two seconds remained on the man advantage when Ott shoveled
the puck past Carey Price for the game-winner. The Sabres went
into the game with the NHL's worst power play.



Montreal coach Michel Therrien used Subban liberally during the
team's comeback, but wasn't impressed with his penalty.



"It's a bad penalty, especially with the effort the guys put in
in the second and third," Therrien said. "We're going to take
care of that internally and make sure it doesn't happen again."



The Canadiens ended a five-game winning streak, but still have
only one regulation loss in their past 18 games (13-1-4) since a
6-0 loss to Toronto on Feb. 9.



"We went through the motions in the first period," Therrien
said. "We weren't at our best, that's for sure.



"But we never quit. I thought the guys worked really hard to
make a comeback. Enroth played really well for them. As long as
the effort is there, I'm going to be satisfied."



Sabres scoring leader Thomas Vanek limped to the bench after
taking a Christian Ehrhoff point shot off the hip area during a
power play eight minutes into the second and did not return. The
team said first that he had an upper-body injury, then changed
it to lower-body after the game.



"We'll have to go day-to-day," Rolston said. "He's limping
around a bit.



"It will probably be a day-to-day, pain-tolerance thing."



The Canadiens' failure to clear the puck from their zone led to
two Buffalo goals in the opening period.



Ott jumped on a loose puck and sent a shot in off the post from
the slot at 7:47 and Tyler Myers had a point shot go in off
Ennis' stick in front of Price at 18:59.



The Canadiens had an 11-2 shot advantage in the second period
but failed to score, with Enroth's best stop coming off Michael
Ryder.



Pacioretty finally scored on Montreal's 28th shot 7:04 into the
third as he slid a shot in from the edge of the crease after
some clever work by Brendan Gallagher behind the net.



Armstrong, with his second goal of the season and second in as
many games, then deked to the backhand to beat Enroth at 16:09.



"What you saw in the latter part of the game is where we're at
right now," Rolston said. "We had a two-goal lead, we played
well, and then the confidence of our team faltered a bit,
especially after they got the first one.



"I'm happy we caught ourselves, but that's where we're at right
now. We have to build the confidence in those games to be able
to finish them off. That's another step."



Notes: The Canadiens moved Gabriel Dumont to center on the
fourth line and promoted Armstrong to the third a game after he
scored his first goal of the season. ... Michael Blunden was
returned to AHL Hamilton with Michael Ryder back from an injury.
... Tomas Kaberle sat out for Montreal, while Nathan Gerbe and
John Scott were Buffalo's scratches. Andrej Sekera missed with
an upper-body injury. ... The ceremonial faceoff saw former
world boxing champions Jean Pascal and Lucian Bute approach
center ice from opposite directions. They fight each other May
25 at the Bell Centre.
