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.
