Recap: Buffalo vs. Montreal

Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - P.A. Parenteau scored the deciding goal of the shootout to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday.

Buffalo's Brian Gionta and the Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk were both successful in the first round of the shootout. Parenteau, the third shooter for Montreal, skated up the middle, fooled Michal Neuvirth with a head fake and ended the game with a quick wrister into the top of the net.

Parenteau also lit the lamp in regulation and Dustin Tokarski made 31 saves for Montreal, which snapped a three-game skid.

Drew Stafford provided Buffalo's lone offense and Neuvirth made 31 saves in defeat.

"The effort tonight was really good. We've been getting good goaltending and I liked how we battled back," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said.

Parenteau broke the scoreless deadlock 19 seconds into the third after depositing the rebound of P.K. Subban's blast from the point into the net.

Stafford answered back for Buffalo less than three minutes later on the power play by tipping in Tyler Myers' pass from the top of the crease.

Neuvirth went post to post to make an outstanding toe save on Max Pacioretty with under two minutes left in overtime and Tokarski stuck out his blocker to stop Zemgus Girgensons at the buzzer to send the game to a shootout.

Montreal had two power plays in the first, but were unable to find the back of the net.

Midway through the second, Tokarski denied Chris Stewart of a tip-in opportunity from the side of the net with a quick toe save to keep the game scoreless.
