BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Ryan Johansen scored the only goal in the shootout and the Columbus Blue Jackets extended their winning streak to six games with a 4-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.
The winning streak matches the longest in franchise history set on April 3, 2006.
Brandon Dubinsky, David Savard and Matt Calvert scored in regulation for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves.
Tyler Myers had two goals, including a power-play goal with 24.9 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to overtime. Drew Stafford also scored for Buffalo, which has lost three straight.
The Sabres opened the scoring early.
Matt Moulson sent a soft pass across the ice to Myers, who had crept in from the right point and lifted a shot over Bobrovsky to put Buffalo up 1-0 just 59 seconds into the game.
