MONTREAL — The Buffalo Sabres winless streak has ended with a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens tonight.

Although the Sabres only mustered 18 shots to the Canadiens 34, their capitalization on those shots were the difference.

Drew Stafford got things rolling for the Sabres 5:21 into the first period, assisted by Cody Hodson and Tyler Myers. Brandon Prust tied the game for Montreal at 8:15, assisted by David Desharnais. Matt Moulson put Buffalo back on top 2-1 at 14:53. Nikita Zadarov and Torrey Mitchell got the assists on the goal. Then at 19:19, Brian Gionta put Buffalo up 3-1.

After a scoreless second period, Montreal attempted to mount a comeback with David Desharnais pulling the Canadiens to within one goal at 4:20 of the third, assisted by Dale Weise and Max Pacioretty. But Montreal could do no more, even with a power play about half way through the period.

The win ends a 14-game losing streak for the Sabres, one of the longest in league history. The NHL record for consecutive losses was set by the Washington Capitals in the 1974-75 season. The San Jose Sharks matched it in 1992-93.
