The Buffalo Sabres overcame a late two-goal deficit and went on to defeat the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 in a shootout Saturday.

The Sabres took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Nathan Beaulieu early in the first period.

The score sat at 1-0 until late in the second period when the Canucks scored two quick goals to take a 2-1 lead heading into the second intermission. The Canucks then extended their lead to 3-1 on an early third period goal.

It wasn't until a little less than three minutes to go in regulation when Jeff Skinner scored to put the Sabres back on the board and cut the Canucks lead to 3-2.

Then, with less than two minutes left, Sam Reinhart tallied his second goal of the season to tie the game and send it to overtime.

Neither team could capitalize in overtime and the game went into a shootout.

The Sabres received goals from Jack Eichel and Casey Mittelstadt in the shootout and went on to defeat the Canucks 4-3. 

With the win the Sabres are now 9-6-2 on the season.
