Buffalo's first goal was at 2:06 of the first period by Cody Hodgson, assisted by Patrick Kaleta and Zadorov. Marcus Foligno made is 2-0 at 13:05, assisted by Nicolas Deslauriers and Drew Stafford.

In the second period, Sean Bergenheim made it 2-1 just 1:08 into the period. Brad Boyes was awarded the assist. Jimmy Hayes tied it at 2 at 4:51, assisted by Bergenheim and Dmitry Kulikov.

Florida took the lead with a Jussi Jokinen goal at :57 of the third period. Dave Bolland assisted. Brian Gionta tied it for Buffalo at 8:27, assisted by Tyler Myers and Andre Benoit, setting up the overtime and making the Zadarov game winner possible.
