BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Matt Moulson’s tiebreaking power-play goal with 1:18 left lifted the Buffalo Sabres to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night.

Tyler Ennis added a highlight-reel goal, and Jhonas Enroth made 30 saves as Buffalo rebounded from a home loss to Winnipeg on Wednesday.

P.A. Parenteau’s third-period, power-play goal ended Montreal’s scoring slump at 132 minutes, 36 seconds, but it wasn’t enough for the Canadiens to avoid their second-straight loss.

Ennis skated through the right circle and around defenseman Alexei Emelin, but had to leap over goalie Carey Price in the crease. Falling with his back to the net, Ennis found the moving puck and flipped in a backhanded shot from the bottom of the left circle. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
