The Buffalo Sabres earned five of six possible points on their road trip after Malcolm Subban helped steal one Friday night in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Sabres goaltender made a career-high 45 saves at PPG Paints Arena in his first game back from an injury he sustained in his Buffalo debut on December 4.

Jeff Carter scored the overtime winner for Pittsburgh. Evan Rodrigues and Brock McGinn also scored for the Penguins. Tristan Jarry made 19 stops.
Buffalo wraps up its three-game road trip 2-0-1.
