Struggling Sabres get 3rd win of season, beating Sharks 5-4 in shootout

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Cory Hodgson scored in the fourth round of the shootout, and Ryan Miller made 47 saves for the Buffalo Sabres, who overcame a pair of blown third-period leads to get their third win in 17 games this season, 5-4 over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night.

Henrik Tallinder, Cody McCormick, Drew Stafford and Tyler Ennis also scored for the Sabres, who have beaten the Sharks five straight times.

Tyler Kennedy and Tomas Hertl scored 70 seconds apart early in the third to erase a two-goal deficit for the Sharks, and Tommy Wingels got another equalizer late in the third but San Jose still lost its third straight game. Marty Havlat also scored and Antti Niemi made 32 saves.
