Thursday night’s game in Miami featured two teams fighting to get into playoff position in the Eastern Conference and ended with just 4.5 seconds left in overtime. With time running out, the Buffalo Sabres had a 3-on-2 and defenseman Tyler Myers blasted a slap shot past Florida Panthers goalie Tomas Vakoun for a 3-2 win.

The win gave the Sabres (26-22-5) their first three-game winning streak of the season. Buffalo is in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, now just two points behind the Carolina Hurricanes for the final playoff spot. The Panthers (23-24-7) lost their sixth straight at home, leaving them six points behind Carolina and in 11th place in the East.

“I was just trying to skate as fast as I could,” Myers said of his game-winner. “Luckily, I got down the ice quick enough.” The Sabres have now won 10 of their 15 overtime games this season.

The Panthers never led in the game, but twice rallied from one-goal deficits. “We find a way to lose that point again,” said Panthers right wing Steve Bernier, who scored Florida’s first goal during a second-period power play. “It’s frustrating. But the last thing we need right now is to put our head down. We’ve got to keep our heads up. You never know what’s going to happen.”
