Ott scores in 6th round of shootout to lift Sabres to 5-4 win over Maple Leafs

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Steve Ott scored the decisive goal in the sixth round of the shootout, helping the Buffalo Sabres rally for a 5-4 win over the slumping Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

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.
