The Buffalo Sabres erased a late third-period deficit and defeated the Minnesota Wild, 6-5, in overtime on Saturday night in front of a sold-out crowd at KeyBank Center. With the victory, Buffalo improved to 20-15-2 on the season.

Victor Olofsson capped off the comeback as he scored his second goal of the game off a cross-ice pass from Peyton Krebs in the right circle with just 18 seconds left in overtime.

The game-winner came after Rasmus Dahlin, who had two goals and three assists, tied the game at five with two minutes left in the third period.

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen earned his eighth win in his last nine starts after turning aside 39-of-44 shots.

The Sabres will continue their homestand on Monday night when they host the Philadelphia Flyers.
