The Sabres have a way of making the last few games more entertaining as the Canucks took them to their 5th straight overtime game as Tyler Myers scored the game winner with 23 seconds left in the overtime period:

The Sabres controlled most of this game, jumping out to an early 2-0 lead in the first period with goals from Tyler Ennis and Cody McCormick. The Canucks made it 2-1 with a Daniel Sedin powerplay goal and then Steve Montador made it 3-1 with a blast from the point. In the third period, Alexander Edler and Mikael Samuelsson scored to tie the game at 3. 

Ryan Miller kept the Sabres in this game, especially early, with a handful of good saves. The Sabres came out flat in the first period and Miller's saves allowed the team to take the lead on their first shot of the game eight minutes into the first. Miller made 36 saves on 39 shots in this game, including 15 saves in the first period. On the other side, Cory Schneider, who had a .90 GAA coming into the game, made 35 saves on 39 shots. 

Both Thomas Vanek and Tyler Ennis looked impressive again on the night. Although Vanek didn't score a goal tonight, he did register two assists and put a team high 7 shots on net. Vanek looks more confident in his game in the last few games and it shows with some impressive moves he put on Canucks defensemen to get an open look at the net. Ennis had one goal and six shots on net on the night and looked every bit as good as Vanek did with some impressive dekes of his own. 

The Sabres will travel to Washington to face off against the Capitals on Wednesday night and then face the Kings and Lightning Friday and Saturday night at home.
