Matt Hendricks' short-handed goal lifts Oilers to 3-2 win over Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Matt Hendricks' short-handed goal 57 seconds into the third period lifted the Edmonton Oilers to a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres in a matchup of the NHL's two worst teams Monday night.

Justin Schultz and Jeff Petry also scored for Edmonton, and David Perron had two assists. Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 42 shots in helping Edmonton snap an 0-5-1 skid against the Sabres dating to a 4-1 win on Oct. 16, 2003.

The Oilers (19-33-6) earned their fourth win in five games and bounced back from a 4-0 loss at Boston on Saturday.

Drew Stafford and Steve Ott scored for the Sabres (15-32-8), who dropped six points behind the Oilers in the overall standings.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
