Sabres erase third-period deficit, top Wild in OT

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.

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