Sabres beat pants off Coyotes

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Ryan Miller made 36 saves and Mark Pysyk scored an unusual goal at 3:47 of overtime to lift the short-handed Buffalo Sabres to a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday night.

Pysyk, a call-up from Buffalo's AHL affiliate in Rochester, scored when his deflected shot hit Martin Hanzal and became lodged in the back Mike Smith's jersey. The goalie retreated into his crease, unwittingly carrying the puck across the line and ending the game.

Tyler Ennis also scored for Buffalo, which is 4-0-1 in its last five home games after starting the season 3-12-1 at First Niagara Center.

The Sabres started the game with just 16 skaters after a virus left Linus Omark, Cody Hodgson, Ville Leino, Marcus Foligno and Alexander Sulzer unable to play.

Hanzal scored for the Coyotes, who concluded a four-game road trip with a 1-1-2 record. Smith made 30 saves.
