NHL: D’Agostini lifts Sabres to OT win over Bruins

First Published Feb 26 2014 10:01 pm • Last Updated Feb 27 2014 06:38 pm

Buffalo, N.Y. • Matt D’Agostini and the last-place Buffalo Sabres caught Zdeno Chara and the Atlantic Division-leading Boston Bruins by surprise Wednesday night.

After squandering a 3-1 lead, the Sabres rallied for two goals in the span of 75 seconds to steal away a 5-4 overtime victory. D’Agostini sealed it by outracing a flat-footed Chara to a loose puck and scoring on a partial breakaway 22 seconds into the extra period.

Forcing the turnover at the Bruins’ blue line, D’Agostini managed to shift the puck from his forehand to his backhand and slip a shot in under Chad Johnson’s pad.

"I could tell (Chara) didn’t know I’d be coming up from behind him. I think he just thought he had time to go back and retrieve the puck," D’Agostini said. "I heard their bench screaming. I tried a little sneak attack on him in there, so it was good that I got by him."

Red Wings 2, Canadiens 1 (OT) • There was something familiar about the way the checking of Mike Babcock’s Detroit smothered Montreal.

It was almost exactly the way Canada won the gold medal under Babcock at the Olympics in Sochi.

And, it worked again this time as Gustav Nyquist’s rebound goal with 28 seconds left in overtime led the Red Wings past the Canadiens 2-1.
