SABRES 5, WILD 4, SO
Sam Reinhart scored the lone shootout goal and Buffalo won for just the third time in nine games by beating Minnesota.
Reinhart also had a goal and an assist in regulation for the Sabres, who led by two in the second period before giving up Zach Parise’s tying goal with 1:37 left in the third. Linus Ullmark stopped 41 shots through overtime in a game Buffalo never trailed.
Jack Eichel set up two goals and C.J. Smith also scored. Buffalo’s once anemic power-play unit converted both opportunities on goals from Evan Rodrigues and Rasmus Dahlin.
Minnesota defenseman Jared Spurgeon scored twice and Charlie Coyle also scored during a three-goal second period. Devan Dubnyk stopped 35 shots.
