MONTREAL — The Buffalo Sabres are slowly climbing out of the NHL's basement, winning again Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens — and winning five of their last six games.

The Blue and Gold needed a shootout to secure the two points Saturday, but did so against a Montreal team that leads the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference — for the second time in two nights.

Zemgus Girgensons started the scoring for Buffalo at 14:03 of the first period, assisted by Tyler Ennis and Nicolas Deslauriers.

In the second, Montreal tied it with a goal by Brendan Gallagher at 7:51, assisted by Alex Galchenyuk and Bryan Allen.

The Sabres re-took the lead in the third period with a goal by Chris Stewart at 5:57, assisted by Marcus Foligno. But again Montreal came back with Lars Eller scoring at 7:31. Brandon Prust and Alexei Emelin notched the assists on the tying goal. Then Montreal took the lead — to the delight of the home crowd. Max Pacioretty's goal at 13:15 was assisted by Dale Weise and P.K. Subban. 

At 14:04, Brian Flynn knotted the game again for the Sabres, assisted by Brian Gionta and Torrey Mitchell. Then in the shootout, Flynn scored the only goal — in the fifth round, giving Buffalo the victory.
