Buffalo 3, Ottawa 2

Via: The Sports Network

'The game was tied throughout much of the third period after Ottawa made it 2-2 early in the stanza, but Buffalo grabbed the lead with four minutes left when Ales Kotalik sent a shot on net from the top of the right circle that went wide, but Vanek redirected it past Emery for a 3-2 lead. A tripping penalty by Mike Fisher with 2:35 to play effectively killed any chance Ottawa had of tying the game.'
