Devils slip past Sabres 1-0 in OT
NEW JERSEY 1, BUFFALO 0 (OT)

By ED BARMAKIAN
Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Jhonas Enroth lost sight of the puck for
just one second.

And that was all the opening Steve Bernier of the Devils needed
to beat the Buffalo goalie and give the Devils a 1-0 victory in
overtime on Saturday.

"I lost sight of it for a second there," said Enroth, who
finished with 23 saves.

"I looked on the outside of our defender and I should have
looked on the inside. It was a good shot, but I could have
played it different, too. You want to win the game and get a
shutout. This is a tough one, but they won fair and square."

Cory Schneider made 15 saves for the shutout and has won
back-to-back games after winning at Carolina on Friday night.
Schneider made 16 saves in the 5-2 victory over the Hurricanes.

"It was a big relief," Bernier said of his goal. "He made some
very, very nice saves the whole game. He made it very tough for
us."

Andy Greene had stolen the puck and passed it to Bernier for the
winning tally at 4:19 of overtime.

"We had a clean breakout and I got the puck in the middle and
cut across the blue line and used their defenseman for a shot,"
Bernier said.

Schneider wasn't quite as busy as Enroth, but he made the saves
when needed.

"It doesn't matter if it's 0-0 or 2-2, if it's a tie game you
have to be the one who makes the extra save," Schneider said.

"When you're giving under 20 shots a night, sometimes one goal
is enough. It can be tough standing there and watching (Enroth)
do all that, but it's part of my job to stop the next one.

"I was ready to go. I didn't have much work (Friday) night with
only 18 shots, so I'm pretty fresh. I felt good in the third
period last night and I was able to carry it over. It's good to
get in there right away and get a win."

Devils forward Ryan Carter left the game just 12 seconds into
his first shift on the ice at the 2:05 mark of the first period
when he lost a fight to Marcus Foligno.

The two squared off away from the play and the 6-foot-3,
223-pound Foligno threw a right hand that caught Carter square
on the side of his helmet. That ended the fight and sent Carter
to the locker room for treatment. He did not return.

"I think he's going to be all right, but I don't have an update
yet," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said.

The Devils held a 9-3 advantage in shots in the first period and
nearly scored in the final minute when Patrik Elias' point-blank
attempt banged off the left post.

Schneider drew cheers when he made a kick save to deny a
point-blank shot by Tyler Ennis of the Sabres near the end of
the second period. The Devils held a 15-10 shot edge through two
periods.

The Sabres had a chance early in the third period when Ville
Leino skated in alone, but his shot was knocked wide by
Schneider.

Enroth foiled a shot on his doorstep by Travis Zajac late of the
third with a brilliant glove save.

"I had good poise there and stayed on my feet and he shot it
right into my glove," Enroth said.

NOTES: The Devils killed all three Sabres power plays to make
them 16 for 16 over their past four games. ... Patrick Kaleta is
out for the rest of the season for Buffalo after a torn ACL in a
game for Rochester of the AHL on Friday. Kaleta was sent down by
the Sabres on Nov. 2. ... The Sabres snapped a five-game losing
streak with 3-2 overtime victory over Toronto on Friday. ...
Jaromir Jagr scored the 692nd goal of his career on Friday
against Carolina, tying him with Steve Yzerman for eighth place
on the NHL list.
