Overtime Time Goal Assist Assist Score  
N/A            
The Sabres pull out a big win coming off the Christmas break thanks to Darren Puppa saving 5 of 5 goalie rating draws  
Pierre Turgeon opened the scoring with a powerplay goal, skating through the defense on the PP  
Steve Yzerman tied it up later in the period, jumping on a rebound that was free as time expired on the powerplay and beating Puppa
Arniel scored later in the 1st to make the score 2-1.  The teams stayed that way through almost 40 more minutes as both goalies were good
Buffalo's second line broke it open in the third, as Ruuttu and Mogilny connected on a series of nifty passing plays to put the game away
