The Buffalo Sabres found themselves in a familiar position against Winnipeg, falling behind 2-0, but this time Buffalo rallied and scored four straight goals to pull out a rare win 4-2.

Marcus Foligno scored 50 seconds into the third period to even the score at 2, then Matt Moulson did his part to help put a damper on Eric O’Dell’s NHL debut.

With O’Dell sitting in the box serving a hooking minor, Moulson redirected home a point shot from Christian Ehrhoff for the eventual game-winner at 2:31 of the final frame and Matt Ellis added some insurance as the Sabres fourth line scored against the Jets’ fourth unit.

The game started slow and after a scoreless first period the Sabres outshot the Jets 19-7, Winnipeg however would grab the lead at 1:02 of the second. Mark Scheifele scored when he sent a wrist shot by Ryan Miller.

Scheifele scored his second of the game, sixth of the season, 36 seconds later to give the Jets a 2-0 lead. He stole the puck at center ice from Sabres forward Matt D’Agostini, skated in and sent a wrist shot past Miller.

The Sabres made it 2-1 when captain Steve Ott scored his fourth of the season at 10:16 of the second. The play started when defenseman Mike Weber’s pass from the blue line went to forward Drew Stafford, whose shot bounced off Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec to Ott, who scored on the rebound.
