BUFFALO Cheap Tre'Davious White Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau’s magic touch has the Calgary Flames pointed back in the right direction.One day after setting up the winning goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Gaudreau scored 2:40 into overtime to lead the Flames to a 2-1 comeback victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.He did it in style, too. After Matthew Tkachuk scored with 55.3 seconds in the third period, Gaudreau and Mark Giordano completed a pretty give-and-go that left Gaudreau alone with an open net.“You enjoy it,” Calgary coach Bill Peters said of Gaudreau, his leading scorer. “I’ve been on the other side of it, obviously, I’ve seen him in the league long enough. I just like the way he goes about it. He’s a passionate player and gets rewarded for his effort.”The Flames (7-5-1) have bounced back with impressive back-to-back wins on the road after a homestand to forget. Calgary lost 9-1 to Pittsburgh on Thursday before a 4-3 overtime loss to Washington on Saturday.“We’re getting where we want to be,” Giordano said. “Tonight was solid again, I didn’t think we gave up much. We’re getting to where we know what to expect out of each other defensively and we’re not cheating offense and that’s resulting in wins.”Down 1-0, the Flames took charge in the third, controlling the flow of play and outshooting Buffalo 5-1. They pulled goaltender David Rittich with more than two minutes remaining Authentic Tre'Davious White Jersey , which set up Tkachuk’s equalizer. Tkachuk tipped a hard shot from Elias Lindholm that was also deflected by Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen and then again off the ice.The Sabres (6-4-2) were left frustrated after spoiling a terrific effort by goalie Carter Hutton. Hutton made 36 saves and was outstanding throughout the game.“I just feel bad for him,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said. “He’s really given us some really good, solid goaltending and he’s been asked to stand on his head and that’s unfortunate. … He was our best player once again. He gave us a chance to win.”Eichel put the Sabres on the board first with a power-play goal with 3:30 left in the first period. The Sabres captain ripped a one-timer from the left circle into the top of the net, ending an eight-game goal drought.“We didn’t play well,” Eichel said. “Obviously, they outplayed us and we didn’t deserve to win that game.”The Flames appeared to even the score at the start of the second period but officials ruled that a whistle blew before the puck went into the net. After a highlight-reel stick save by Hutton prevented Lindholm’s shot from crossing the goal line, the puck went into the net on a second opportunity — but officials had already blown the whistle. A replay review upheld the decision.“I liked the composure on the bench,” Peters said of the disallowed goal. “Had a little adversity there and then moved on.”Rittich made 28 saves for the Flames.The Sabres have points in five straight games (3-0-2) for the first time since a nine-game point streak in 2012.NOTES: This was the first of two meetings between the teams this season.

Mikko Koivu had a goal and an assist for the Wild, and Matt Dumba also scored.“Our effort was fine, that looked like the team I’m used to coaching effort-wise,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. “We made a couple of mistakes and when we did, against that team, it costs you.”After Smith and Dumba exchanged goals in the first period, Nashville opened a 3-1 lead in the second.As a penalty on Nashville’s Ryan Ellis was expiring, Johansen began an odd-man rush with Ekholm trailing.

Turris then pivoted and found Forsberg at the other blue line with a perfect stretch pass, sending the Swede in on a breakaway for his fourth goal of the season.“As soon as I stepped on the ice, (Turris) got the puck and I just tried to make sure that he saw me,” Forsberg said. “He made a nice play and I was all alone.”Stalock finished with 24 saves in his first start of the season.Koivu’s first goal of the season at 15:03 of the second cut Nashville’s lead to 3-2. Rinne preserved the win by denying Nino Niederreiter on a breakaway with 2:41 remaining.“It goes both ways and they capitalized on their chances,” Koivu said. “We had some momentum, but it was a step in the right direction tonight.”Salomaki added an empty-net goal in the final seconds.Smith put Nashville in front 6:01 into the game. With a tripping minor on Minnesota’s Jonas Brodin in its final seconds, Smith collected the rebound of Subban’s wrist shot from the center of the blue line through traffic and put it past Stalock for his second of the season.“It was a good start,” Smith said. “Getting the first one is always nice.”Nashville has scored first in five of six games this season.Dumba evened the game at 13:29 on the power play. Koivu’s backhand pass from the right corner ricocheted off the stick of Nashville’s Nick Bonino and into the high slot.
