BUFFALO, N.Y. - Matt D'Agostini outraced Zdeno Chara to a loose puck and scored 22 seconds into overtime, lifting the Buffalo Sabres to a 5-4 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

Matt Moulson forced overtime by scoring with 53 seconds left in regulation in a game the Sabres won after squandering a 3-1 second-period lead. Brian Flynn had a goal and assist, while Tyler Myers and Zemgus Girgensons also scored for Buffalo.

Coming off a 3-2 win over Carolina on Tuesday, the Sabres (17-34-8) won consecutive games for only the third time this season, and first since Dec. 17-19.

Chara, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand and Chris Kelly scored for the Atlantic Division-leading Bruins (37-16-5), in their first game after the NHL's two-week Olympic break.


MONTREAL (AP) — Gustav Nyquist scored on a rebound with 28 seconds left in overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a win over the Montreal Canadiens in the first post-Olympic game for both teams.

Montreal had goalie Peter Budaj pulled for an extra attacker when captain Brian Gionta scored with 29 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.

A team coached by Detroit's Mike Babcock, who led Canada to the gold medal, had not allowed a goal since Lauris Darzins got one at 15:41 of the first period of Canada's 2-1 win over Latvia in the quarterfinals in Sochi.

Todd Bertuzzi scored in the first period for Detroit.
