Whitby - November 14, 2011 - The Montreal Canadiens squandered a 2-0 lead to the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night and ended up losing the game 3-2 in a shootout. Buffalo’s Brad Boyes scored the OT shootout winner to give the visiting Sabres the win.

The first period was a scoreless affair with the two teams registering a total of 16 shots on net. Erik Cole scored the first goal of the game just about four minutes into the middle frame. Max Pacioretty made it 2-0 for the Habs at 14:17 of the second. This would be the end of the scoring for the Canadiens on this night.

Less than a minute into the third Jason Pomminville scored his seventh of the year to bring the Sabres within one. Twelve minutes later Derek Roy scored to tie it at two and force overtime.

The five minute session of four on four solved nothing and that forced a shootout. Tomas Plekanec was stopped for Montreal and Thomas Vanek scored for Buffalo in the first round. Pacioretty and Boyes exchanged goals in the second round, which meant that Brian Gionta needed to score to keep the Habs hopes alive. Jhonas Enroth, filling in for the injured Ryan Miller made the critical save for the win.

Buffalo star rearguard Tyler Myers was a healthy scratch for this game. Hal Gill, Mike Cammallari and Andrei Kostistyn were the scratches for Montreal. The three stars were Boyes (1st), Pacioretty (2nd) and Cole (3rd)

Habs are back in action on Wednesday night when the Carolina Hurricanes visit the Bell Centre.

Until next time, play every game as if it is your last one…
