BUFFALO -- Evander Kane got the Buffalo Sabres to overtime against the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night. From there it was all Chad Johnson.

The Sabres netminder stopped three-of-three overtime shots and four of five shooters in the ensuing shootout to assure Buffalo's second win of the season.

Toronto led for nearly the entire game, scoring just 1:28 into the first period when Pierre Alexandre Parenteau got one past Johnson with the help of Roman Polak and Michael Grabner.

Following a scoreless second, Kane scored unassisted for the Sabres with just 4:29 remaining in the third period to send the game to overtime -- the first of the season for the Sabres.

With no goal scored in overtime, it went to a shootout where Tyler Ennis and Matt Moulson put pucks past Jonathan Bernier for the win.

The Sabres next play Friday when the Montreal Canadiens visit First Niagara Center.
