Recap: Buffalo vs. Detroit

Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Zemgus Girgensons scored the winner in the shootout to lead the Buffalo Sabres in a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

In the third round, Girgensons deked back to the forehand and lifted the puck into the left corner of the net. Michal Neuvirth preserved the win by not biting on Henrik Zetterberg's fake and making the stop.

Brian Flynn and Chris Stewart scored in regulation for the Sabres, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Neuvirth stopped 36 shots in the win.

Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and an assist and Tomas Tatar also lit the lamp for the Red Wings, who had a two-game winning streak stopped. Jimmy Howard finished the contest with 19 stops.

"It's not like we did everything terrible," said Red Wings coach Mike Babcock. "When a team plays the night before you should jump all over them."

After a scoreless first period, Buffalo took a 1-0 lead 6:55 into the second as Girgensons' wraparound from the right side was stopped but the rebound came out front and Flynn put it in for his first of the season.

Detroit answered six minutes later when Tatar threw a shot on net from the top of the left circle that beat Neuvirth cleanly.

The Red Wings made it a 2-1 game 4:27 into the third as Datsyuk took a pass in the middle and shifted to the forehand before shooting it into the left side for his fifth of the year.

Buffalo, though, tied the game with 6:52 left in regulation when Stewart jammed the puck in during a scrum in front for his first of the year.

"That one felt good," Stewart said. "I've had ample opportunities around the net, some golden chances this year. I've been a little bit snake bitten. To get that one, hopefully tides will turn."

Detroit had a power play in the extra session when Brian Gionta was whistled for hooking, but was unable to take advantage of the 4-on-3 situation.
