Matt Moulson and Tyler Ennis each had one goal and two assists for the Sabres, who snapped a five-game skid. Drew Stafford and Tyler Myers also lit the lamp.

"It was a huge character win for us," Myers said. "Any time they seemed to get a little bit of life, we answered right back pretty quick. It's something we have to try to make a habit moving forward."
