BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- The Sabres snapped their 3-game losing streak in dramatic fashion on Thursday night. Marco Scandella scored the game-winning goal with less than a second left in overtime, sending the Sabres to a 3-2 win over Detroit.
Evander Kane, whose days in a Sabres uniform are likely numbered, scored a goal in the second period to give Buffalo a 2-1 advantage.
That would remain the score until 1:25 left in regulation. Detroit’s Justin Abdelkader pulled the Red Wings into a 2-2 tie with his power play goal but the Sabres survived on Scandella’s overtime game-winner.
Goalie Robin Lehner finished with 35 saves.
The Sabres next game is Saturday in Washington.
