Lieuwen, Sabres KO the visiting Devils

Buffalo gains much-needed confidence with shootout win.

BUFFALO —

Tyler Ennis scored twice in the third period and again in the shootout to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
Ville Leino had the winner in the ninth round of the shootout and Nathan Lieuwen made 33 saves for his first NHL win.
Dainius Zubrus gave New Jersey a 1-0 lead in the second period and Tuomo Ruutu tipped Andy Greene's shot past Lieuwen at the 6:58 mark of the third to tie it 2-2.
The Devils are 0-11 this season in shootouts. They are three points out of the Eastern Conference's final wild card spot.
Cory Schneider made 25 saves for New Jersey.
In more Sabres news this week, on Monday, head coach Ted Nolan will stay on as the head coach beyond this season after signing a three-year contract extension. The deal came 4 1/2 months after Nolan returned to Buffalo for a second stint — this time, initially, on an interim basis. And it's a reward for Nolan, who has provided a spark to a young, patchwork lineup on a last-place team.
"I said back in November that it was a dream to be able to come back and coach the Sabres, and that's still true today," Nolan said. "I'm excited by the challenge facing our team and our organization. And I'm truly thankful to have this opportunity."
Nolan took over in mid-November after coach Ron Rolston was fired along with general manager Darcy Regier after Buffalo got off to a franchise-worst 4-15-1 start.
 
Avs 3, Blue Jackets 2 (OT)
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Gabriel Landeskog scored twice, including a power-play goal at 4:27 of overtime to help the Avalanche extend their winning streak to four.
Rookie scoring leader Nathan MacKinnon, centering the top line with Matt Duchene expected to miss a month with a knee injury, assisted on both of Landeskog's scores.
