Buffalo 7, Ottawa 6, OT

‘The teams scored three goals in the final 1:37 of regulation as Buffalo’s Derek Roy tied it at 5 with a short-handed effort for his second of the game at 18:23. But Bryan Smolinski scored his second 24 seconds later during the same power play to give Ottawa its fifth straight lead, 6-5. The Sabres pressed for one more, and Connolly got it as he swept a puck that lay within Ray Emery’s reach up and over the rookie goalie to shock the sellout crowd. The winning goal was even more sudden as Drury beat Emery with a shot from the left circle.’
