BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Thomas Vanek scored twice in regulation, including the tying tally with 2 seconds left, and added a shootout goal to rally the Buffalo Sabres past the Montreal Canadiens 5-4 on Thursday night.

Jason Pominville also scored in the shootout and Ryan Miller clinched the victory by making a left pad save to stop Brian Gionta on Montreal's final opportunity.

Buffalo rallied from a 4-2 deficit in the third period to snap a three-game skid and win for the second time in its past nine games. Vanek, the NHL's leading scorer with 10 goals and 21 points, keyed the comeback by scoring both third-period goals, his second coming during a scramble in front at 19:58.
