'Buffalo started the extra frame with a power play as Tkachuk was issued a slashing call as time expired in regulation, but the Sabres were unable to take advantage and with 1:14 remaining in overtime Jaroslav Spacek was called for holding Ilya Kovalchuk. Atlanta brought the puck into the Buffalo end and Alexei Zhitnik sent a pass from the high slot to Slava Kozlov, who used a touch pass to get the puck to the slot where Tkachuk fired a wrister into the right corner of the net to win the game.'
