BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Dominik Kahun scored the decisive goal in the seventh round of a shootout and the Buffalo Sabres snapped a six-game skid with a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.
Linus Ullmark stopped 33 shots through overtime and six of seven shootout attempts in his first game in six weeks.
Jack Eichel snapped a career-worst seven-game point drought and rookie Victor Olofsson also scored for Buffalo.
Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist, and Dmitry Orlov also scored as Washington erased a 2-0 deficit in the third period.
Ovechkin’s goal was his 48th of the season, tying him with Boston’s David Pastrnak for the NHL lead.
