COMEBACK GAME OF THE YEAR
After Montreal pushes its lead to 4-2 less than a minute into the 3rd period, Thomas Vanek nets a PPG near the 8 minute mark and evens it up on a scrum with 1.9 seconds left in regulation. Vanek and Jason Pominville beat Peter Budaj in the shootout to snap the Sabres 3 game losing streak with a 5-4 victory.
