A late collapse by the Buffalo Sabres opened the door as Capitals Tom Wilson, with a little over a minute left, tied the score late in the third.

The Sabres’ JJ Peterka opened the scoring with his 8th of the season from Tyson Jost and Victor Olofsson with a few clicks past the ten-minute mark of the first period.

The Sabres went up by a 2-0 score at 16:04 when rookie Zach Benson scored his first National Hockey League goal. Victor Olofsson picked up the assist, his second on the night.

At 07:50 into the second period, the Capitals tied the game at 2-2 when Alexander Alexeyev earned his first of the season from Nic Dowd and Trevor van Riemsdyk.

Buffalo took back their one-goal lead at 16:18 left in the second when Dylan Cozens scored his fourth from Rasmus Dahlin and Casey Mittelstadt while on the powerplay.

Then it was Tom Wilson with his 4th from Dylan Strome and John Carlson at the 18:45 mark of the third. It was Strome winning the game in overtime 4-3.
