Ville Leino has yet to score a regulation goal this season for the Buffalo Sabres. But his shootout goal put Sabres over the top against the New Jersey Devils.

Former Sabre Dainius Zubrus started the scoring at 8:16 of the second period with a deflected shot from Michael Ryder, putting the Devils up 1-0.

Tyler Ennis scored his 20th of the year at 1:39 of the third to tie the game on a wrist shot. Three minutes and two seconds later, he put the Sabres up 2-1 with a power play goal. The Devils tied it at 6:58 of the third with a power play goal of their own by Tuomo Ruuto — another deflection that got by Sabres goaltender Nathan Lieuwen.

The Sabres and Devils went back and forth in the shootout following a scoreless overtime period. Ennis scored again, followed by Jacob Josefson for the Devils. Drew Stafford scored in the fourth round and Jaromir Jagr followed up with a goal of his own. Finally in the ninth round, Leino scored the winner. Shootout goals do not count as official goals, however, leaving Leino technically scoreless for the season.

Every fan in attendance got a free Tim Horton's travel mug to commemorate the announcement this afternoon of a one-of-a-kind Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop will open at Harborcenter this fall. Also, Marc Caira, Tim Hortons president and CEO, conducted a ceremonial faceoff before the game.

Miles Gilbert “Tim” Horton played defense for the Sabres from the start of the 1972-73 season until his death on February 21, 1974. He also played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, and Pittsburgh Penguins. His number 2 was retired by the Sabres in 1998 and hangs in the rafters at the First Niagara Center.
