Kunitz taps it towards the goal line for James Neal,

BUFFALO, N. Nate Stupar Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo ended its five-game losing streak at home at a First Niagara Center filled with plenty of vocal Toronto fans. And that made it all the sweeter for the Sabres. Christian Ehrhoff scored 38 seconds into overtime and the Buffalo Sabres picked up a 3-2 win on Friday. "It is always really fun to play," Ehrhoff said. "The fans that come down sometimes outnumber the Sabres fans and it brings out the best in our fans, too. They are up for the challenge and they were really loud again tonight." Ehrhoff carried the puck from the right point to the centre of the ice before sending a soft wrist shot on goal that went through James Reimers legs. "I didnt have the time to do a big wind-up there or get it hard," Ehrhoff said. "I saw the opening between the legs and just put one through there." Matt Moulson and Luke Adam also scored for the Sabres, who got 22 saves from Ryan Miller and came from behind twice to force overtime. Nikolai Kulemin and Phil Kessel scored for Toronto, which has lost six straight road games. Buffalos second home win over the Leafs was just its third win at home in 15 attempts and its sixth win overall. The long-standing rivalry between the two teams helped drive a Sabres team thats struggled to find goals. "We can see the guys getting a little fired up and its about time," Miller said. "Its good. This kind of rivalry helps. Its always nice to beat them here because you feel like theres so many Leafs fans here, its fun to send them home." Toronto opened the scoring 2:12 into the first period when Kessel came down the left wing and put a snap shot over Millers left pad. Buffalo tied the score on the power play at 7:57 of the second period. With Reimer out of position, a falling Ville Leino used his backhand to find Moulson, who scored his 10th goal of the season and his second in as many games. The Leafs took the lead back 2 1/2 minutes later after Brian Flynn gave the puck away behind the Sabres net. A pass from Trevor Smith deflected in front of the goal, where Kulemin shot it out of the air and past Miller. Adam shot a Reimer rebound under the goalies glove at 18:50 of the second and the teams finished the second period tied at 2. "Ever since Ted (Nolan) got here, the guys are just building on each and every game," Adam said. "We feel a lot more confident as a team, as players, when we come to the rink every morning for practice. Thats carrying over and were playing a lot better." The score was Adams first NHL goal since April 5. The third period was light on scoring chances until the 12:42 mark, when Reimer made consecutive left pad saves on Adam. James van Riemsdyk then had a chance to end the game in regulation on a last-minute breakaway, but Matt DAgostini caught the Leafs forward from behind and swiped the puck into the corner. Van Riemsdyk was surprised there was no penalty on the play. "Unless were playing football, I dont know," he said, later adding, "Usually when youre in all alone and you get your legs taken out from under you, you expect something, especially when the calls were like they were, five or six to one." The Leafs came into the game as the second-least penalized team in the league but picked up 10 penalty minutes on the night, while the Sabres only gave Torontos efficient power play one opportunity. "The breaks arent going our way and thats when youve got to find ways to create more," Toronto coach Randy Carlyle said. "We had a power play where we didnt get much going in the third period and we gave up a power-play goal earlier in the game." Leino and Tyler Myers each had two assists.

The ninth match-up of the Round of 32 sees Sidney Crosby finish off a pretty sequence of passes, while Kyle Turris breaks away. For all the skill and smarts Crosby possesses, this is one highlight where he simply finds himself in the right place at the right time. Looking to expose the Washington Capitals down low on a power play, the Penguins drop four of their players below the hash marks and begin to move the disc around. The tape-to-tape action starts with Evgeni Malkin, who finds Chris Kunitz. Kunitz taps it towards the goal line for James Neal, drawing the attention of all four Capitals defenders. Unfortunately, they forgot about Sid. Neaal goes cross-crease and nearly through the legs of John Carlson to find Sid wide open for the one-knee, one-time finish. Morten Andersen Jersey. Turris, though, gets to the POY showdown by going it alone. He, too, victimizes the Caps but his moves move one way: straight to the net. He barrels over the blue line freezing Mike Green, who earns a delayed penalty. He then shakes off some harassment from John Erskine before reaching for some open net with a ridiculous drag that leaves Philipp Grubauer with no chance of stopping the puck.
