BUFFALO — After dropping 15 of their first 18 games this season, the Buffalo Sabres have won 10 of their last 13 — a remarkable turnaround by a young team that many were hoping would tank this season in order to increase the chances of the top draft pick for 2015.

But the Sabres that are already on the roster are going about their business trying to win as many games in the 2014-15 season as they can. Monday, they found a way to do it in the shootout against the Ottawa Senators.

Ottawa's Bobby Ryan started the scoring in the game at 7:24 of the first period, sliding one past Sabres' netminder Jhonas Enroth, who is now 10-10-1 on the season. Mike Hoffman and Mika Zibanejad assisted on the Sens' goal.

In the second, Buffalo's Rasmus Ristolainen scored on the power play at 4:11 — assisted by Chris Stewart and Brian Gionta. Matt Moulson then put the Sabres ahead at 7:00, assisted by Andrej Meszaros and Tyler Ennis. Marcus Foligno make it 3-1 just 32 second later. Brian Flynn and Tyler Meyrs assisted on the even-strength goal. At 13:42, Matt Stone chipped into the 3-1 Buffalo lead, assisted by Kyle Turris and Cody Ceci.

The third period saw the Senators come back to not only tie it, but take the lead. First Curtis Lazar knotted the game up at 3, assisted by Erik Condra and Alex Chiasson at 2:02. Then Chiasson put Ottawa back ahead at 5:04, assisted by Mark Borowiecki. Time ticked away until 16:41 when Flynn tied the game back up at 4, assisted by Foligno and Andre Benoit.

Following a scoreless overtime, Moulson secured the win for the Sabres. The first shootout shooter, Moulson was also the only player from either side to score.

With the win, the Sabres are now 13-16-2. The Sabres play the Jets in Winnipeg tonight.
