DETROIT -- Down 3-1 in the second period, the Sabres started a rally, taking the lead 3:22 into the third. Unfortunately, they then relinquished that lead and lost to the Red Wings in a shootout.

Still, the Sabres took a point out of Joe Louis Arena, not an easy feat against the Red Wings, who are 13-8-4 on the season. Also, it marks the third consecutive game that the Sabres got at least a point, a feat they've only accomplished one other time this season.

Detroit grabbed the early lead with a goal by Tomas Tatar just 94 seconds into the game. Mike Green and Gustav Nyquist assisted. Justin Abdelkader made it 2-0 at 10:32, assisted by Jonathan Ericsson and Danny DeKeyser. Evander Kane put Buffalo on the board at 17:30, netting his third goal of the season. Ryan O'Reilly and Rasmus Ristolainen assisted.

Drew Miller put the Red Wings up 3-1 in the second period with a goal at 4:21. Abdelkader and Luke Glendening assisted. Then the Sabres kicked it up a notch. Zemgus Girgensons brought the Sabres to within a goal on the power play at 17:09. Ristolainen and Matt Moulson assisted.

Kane scored his fourth of the season and second of the night just 53 seconds into the third period, tying the game for the Blue & Gold. Brian Gionta and Jamie McGinn assisted. At 3:22, Zach Bogosian put the Sabres up 4-3 with his first goal of the season. Girgensons and Ristolainen assisted. But the Sabres couldn't keep the Red Wings down. Abdelkader tied it at 13:31 with his second goal of the evening. Nyquist and Niklas Kronwall assisted.

Following a scoreless overtime, Brad Richards scored the only shootout goal, giving Detroit the win.

The Sabres, now 10-12-3, are off until Friday when the Phoenix Coyotes visit First Niagara Center.
