BUFFALO, N.Y. - Ryan O'Reilly's sliding overtime goal helped the Buffalo Sabres snap a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

O'Reilly was tripped as he cut to the slot, but got off an off-balance shot that fooled Kings goaltender Jhonas Enroth at 3:19 of overtime. It was O'Reilly's 100th NHL goal.

Jamie McGinn also scored for the Sabres, and Linus Ullmark made three of his 21 saves in overtime.

Marian Gaborik scored for the Kings, and former Sabres goaltender Enroth finished with 28 saves.

The loss snapped the Kings' six-game winning streak, but Los Angeles has picked up a point or more in nine in a row.
