Ryan Miller then secured the win by getting his left pad out to stop former Sabres forward Clarke MacArthur's shootout attempt. Miller stopped 32 shots through overtime, and allowed only Tyler Bozak to score in the tiebreaker.
Ott set up his successful shootout goal by driving in full speed on James Reimer. Without stopping, Ott slipped the puck inside the right post before the goalie had a chance to get his pad out.
Christian Ehrhoff had a goal and two assists for Buffalo, which won consecutive games for only the fourth time this season.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
