Recap

MONTREAL (AP) — Rasmus Ristolainen scored at 1:38 of overtime to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 6-5 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

Vladimir Sobotka and Jeff Skinner each scored twice and Conor Sheary added a goal for the Sabres.

Linus Ullmark gave up five goals on 32 shots through two periods. Carter Hutton came in and made five saves in the third.

Jonathan Drouin, Matthew Peca, Andrew Shaw, Tomas Tatar and Nicolas Deslauriers scored for the Canadiens. Max Domi had three assists and extended his point streak to five games.

Carey Price made 25 saves on 31 shots in the loss.

With the game tied 5-5, Ristolainen scored the winner with a slap shot that soared right past Price after a failed 3-on-1 for the Canadiens at the other end. It was the only shot in overtime.

The Sabres took three leads in the first period, but Montreal answered each time.

Buffalo went up 1-0 on Sobotka's first at 6:08 before Drouin tied it on a 2-on-1 with Domi at 9:14.

The teams then combined for four goals in the span of 1:46.

Sobotka gave Buffalo the 2-1 lead at 14:40 after Price failed to control a rebound in his crease.

Montreal tied it 10 seconds later when Peca netted his first in a Canadiens uniform on a bank shot from behind the net.

Sheary, playing his 200th NHL game, made it 3-2 at 15:52 before Shaw jumped on a loose puck in the crease and tied the game 34 seconds later.

The goals kept coming in the second period, with Skinner giving Buffalo a 4-3 lead at 5:34, just seconds after Jack Eichel hit the post.

The Canadiens have allowed at least four goals in five of their last six games.

Tatar got Montreal level again with his sixth of the season at 10:17 on another 2-on-1 with Domi, who leads the Canadiens with 19 points.

After tying the game four times, the Canadiens took their first lead when Deslauriers scored a short-handed goal — his first of the season — beating Ullmark between the pads at 18:03 of the second.

Skinner scored his second of the game 2:20 into the third period to make it 5-5.

NOTES: Forward Joel Armia will miss six to eight weeks with a right knee injury. The Canadiens recalled forward Kenny Agostino from the AHL as a result. ... It was the second meeting of the season between Montreal and Buffalo, with the Sabres winning 4-3 on Oct. 25.
