It took defenseman Colin Miller 24 games to earn his first goal as a member of the Buffalo Sabres, but it really couldn’t have come at a better time. Miller scored the overtime winner in Buffalo’s 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday at Rogers Place.
The first overtime goal of Miller’s career, the tally came with 3:47 remaining in the extra period.
Kyle Okposo and Johan Larsson also scored for Buffalo while Linus Ullmark made 26 saves.
The Sabres wrap up their three-game road trip with three points and a 1-1-1 record.
The Sabres led 2-0 early after overcoming some very early pressure from Edmonton. At the 4:08 mark of the first period, Okposo deflected in a Marco Scandella slap shot, giving him goals in back-to-back games. Then with 9:17 left in the opening period, Larsson jumped on a rebound and scored his third of the year just after the Sabres were able to transition an Oilers opportunity back up the ice.
