The Buffalo Sabres had a 1-0 lead over the Tampa Lightning. They also had a 2-0 lead. And a 3-2 lead. But at the end of the game, it was Tampa that lead, beating the Sabres 4-3 in overtime.

It's a scenario that has played out repeatedly over the course of Buffalo's 20-46-8 season.

Sunday night the Sabres honored former goaltender Dominik Hasek for a career filled with seasons much better than the 2013-2014 year. Hasek's name was added to the Sabres Hall of Fame. Next year his number will be retired.

Matt D'Agostini started the scoring 12:20 into the first period. Cody Hodgson made it 2-0 less than two minutes later at 14:07. Tampa's Alex Killhorn pulled the Lightning to within a goal at 17:52. And Steven Stamkos tied the game at 19:46.

Following a scoreless second period, the Sabres took a 3-2 lead at 8:14 of the third on a Cory Conacher wrist shot. Tampa tied it yet again at 10:07 of the third, forcing the game into overtime with a tip-in by Ryan Callahan.

In the overtime period, Stamkos scored his second of the night for the Lightning at 1:53 on a slapshot, ending the game with another Sabres loss.
