The Buffalo Sabres may have missed the playoffs for the second straight season, but they can at least hang their hat on the fact they had the Pittsburgh Penguins number.

With the two teams tied at 2 with 2:34 left in the third period Steve Ott scored a disputed goal and lift the Sabres to a 4-2 victory over the Penguins at the Consol Energy Center.

Buffalo (20-21-6) put an end to the Penguins’ seven-game winning streak. The Sabres also snapped the Penguins’ 15-game winning streak, which was one short of the NHL record, on their last visit to Pittsburgh, April 2.

Tomas Vanek added an empty-netter for the Sabres, his second goal of the game, with 27 seconds remaining. It was Vanek’s 20th goal of the season.

Ryan Miller stopped 40 shots on goal for the win.
