TAMPA, Fla. — Jason Pominville scored on a power play at 1:26 of overtime to give the Buffalo Sabres a 2-1 victory over the NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.

Pominville beat Andrei Vasilevskiy with a one-timer from the left circle to give the Sabres their second straight victory over the Lightning.

Cory Conacher scored for Tampa Bay, and Vasilevskiy made 32 saves.

With a point in the standings for the overtime loss, the Lightning became the first team to reach 90 points this season in the NHL.

J.T. Miller, acquired from the New York Rangers on Monday, played 17:40 in his Lightning debut.

With NHL scoring leader Nikita Kucherov out with an undisclosed upper-body injury, the Lightning struggled to generate offensive chances and finished with 17 shots on goal while at even strength.
