Turris scores 3:54 into OT to give Ottawa Senators 4-3 win over Buffalo Sabres

Kyle Turris scored his second goal 3:54 into overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 4-3 victory over the slumping Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

Patrick Wiercioch had a goal and assist, and Chris Phillips also scored for Ottawa, which won for only the second time in eight games (2-2-4). Turris added an assist, and Ben Bishop made 31 saves in his first start in four games.

The Senators also extended their string of games decided by one goal to 11, which is one short of matching the NHL record set by Chicago during the 1997-98 season.

Drew Stafford scored twice, and Mike Weber also scored for Buffalo, 1-2-3 in its past six games.

Turris' goal came on the power play, after Christian Ehrhoff was penalized for interference.
