BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Jason Pominville scored at 2:19 of overtime, and Ryan Miller finished with 22 saves to lift the Buffalo Sabres to a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Friday night.
Derek Roy also scored for the Sabres (15-11-2), who won for just the third time in their past nine games (3-4-2). Buffalo also won for only the second time in its past eight home games.
Jason Garrison scored, and Scott Clemmensen finished with 18 saves for the Panthers (16-8-5), who failed to win their fourth straight for the first time since March 2008.
Florida also missed an opportunity to climb over idle Philadelphia and into the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers and Panthers both have 37 points, but Philadelphia has played two fewer games.
Pominville notched the winner with a wrist shot on a breakaway from the blue line.
