MONTREAL -- The Buffalo Sabres found a way to erase four deficits and win without ever holding a lead. Pepe Jersey . Mikhail Grigorenko scored in the shootout to give Buffalo a 5-4 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night in the first pre-season game for both teams. Grigorenko beat Zachary Fucale with a backhand on the Sabres second attempt in the tiebreaker. Buffalo, which never led in the game or overtime, erased four one-goal deficits in regulation. Colton Gillies drew the Sabres even at four when he backhanded his rebound past Fucale 15:36 into the third. Zemgus Girgensons had a pair in the second for Buffalo, including his second goal of the period to tie it at three at 11:51 on the first shot faced by Fucale. "I thought he was one of our best players tonight," Sabres coach Ron Rolston said. "He changed the momentum of the game with the short-handed goal and then getting the second goal that he had on the short side." Jamie McBain also scored for the Sabres, who killed five of Montreals six power-play opportunities. "I think we played really well as a team," Grigorenko said. "Our penalty killing was amazing and our goalies played really well." Matt Hackett denied Alex Galchenyuk, Martin Reway and Brendan Gallagher in the shootout. He stopped 7-of-8 shots in the game after replacing Enroth, who stopped 10 shots. Michael Bournival scored twice for Montreal. Linemate Michael McCarron got his second assist of the game when Martin St-Pierre scored 12:59 into the third to give the Canadiens their fourth one-goal lead. "St-Pierre is a player who has a good vision of the play," Bournival said. "Its fun to play with him and McCarron is a big guy who uses his size to create space on the ice." Erik Nystrom scored a power-play goal for Montreal, an unassisted effort 9:37 into the second on the last shot Enroth faced. Fucale, who stopped 11-of-13 shots, was drafted 36th overall in the second round by the Canadiens in June after winning the Memorial Cup with the Halifax Mooseheads. "No matter what happens in the first few minutes its important to keep working at it and give the team a chance," Fucale said. Montreal starter Peter Budaj made 10 saves. Buffalos Patrick Kaleta was given a double minor for roughing 10:41 into the third when he tried to pick a fight with Galchenyuk after the Montreal left wing flattened McBain with an open-ice hit. "I guess it was a pretty big hit and if our team was in that position I think someone would be coming over to protect the guy also," Galchenyuk said. Bournival put the Canadiens up 1-0 with his first goal of the game 15:18 in on a pass from McCarron, who was chosen 25th overall with Montreals first-round pick in the June draft. "It was tons of fun," McCarron said. "Each day Ive been here the play has gotten faster and faster and I had to adjust again today, and I adjusted pretty quickly. Our line is talking out there a lot and it made everything a lot easier on us." The Sabres erased deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 early in the second as the two teams combined for three goals in under three minutes. Girgensons scored a short-handed goal 58 seconds into the second to tie it at one before Bournival gave Montreal another one-goal lead with his second goal at the two-minute mark. McBain tied it at two at 3:52 with a shot from the slot into the top right corner after taking a centring pass from Steve Ott. Buffalos Cody McCormick had his second fighting major of the game 5:13 into the third, when he also drew a roughing minor for his bout with Canadiens defenceman Davis Drewiske. McCormick was given an instigating minor and a misconduct for his fight with Jarred Tinordi with 22 seconds left in the first. Montreals Lars Eller centred a line with sophomores Galchenyuk and Gallagher, the latter a finalist for the Calder Trophy last season. Norris Trophy winner P.K. Subban and newcomer Daniel Briere were among the Canadiens who did not dress. Ryan Miller, Thomas Vanek and Cody Hodgson were among the Sabres who did not make the trip. Beto Jersey . In fact, with a few improvements, this could very well be a decent team over the next few seasons. I will go into more detail when digging into the Canucks Off-Season Game Plan, which will be coming earlier this year since they are part of the non-playoff contingent, there are some reasons to think this is a favourable situation for President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden and whomever he selects to be the new general manager. Andre Gomes Jersey . Ricciardo made it only halfway around the Jerez track before his RB10 rolled to a stop and began spouting smoke from the back. After team mechanics tended to the car, Ricciardo went back out for a mere two trips around the circuit before calling it quits. . The best round belonged to Pat Perez. Tiger Woods didnt come close to claiming either Thursday in the Farmers Insurance Open, where the seven-time champion failed to break par in the opening round for first time in his career.DENVER -- Initially inserted into the Colorado Rockies rotation as a stop-gap injury replacement, Jordan Lyles has rapidly become a fixture. Lyles pitched effectively into the eighth inning for his third straight win, Justin Morneau hit a two-run homer, and the Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 Saturday night. "Hes really given us a lift in that rotation," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said of Lyles. He originally was slated to begin the season at Triple-A Colorado Springs but wound up filling in for Tyler Chatwood after he strained a hamstring late in spring training. "The biggest factor is his two-seamer," Weiss added. "Its something he worked on all spring, his fastball angle and pitching to the bottom of the zone, and you could see those guys beating it into the ground. Hes a mentally tough kid. He competes. He goes after hitters. Hes been great." Lyles (3-0), acquired in December from Houston in exchange for outfielder Dexter Fowler, allowed one unearned run and five hits in seven innings. LaTroy Hawkins pitched a hitless ninth for his fifth save in five chances. "As a visitor, it wasnt fun, knowing youre coming here." Lyles said. "Balls seem to carry a little further here but guys (pitchers) try to keep the ball on the ground and they cant hit it over if they hit the top of the ball. Thats my approach and just try to let our great infield do their job." The Rockies were also helped by a reversed call that produced their first run. The game was delayed briefly a couple of times when a squirrel wandered on and off the field. The animal was eventually corraled by groundskeepers and taken away. Kyle Kendrick (0-2) went seven innings and allowed three runs on six hits in a solid outing but could not avoid a seventh straight loss, dating to last Aug. 11. The last Phillies pitcher to have a losing streak of seven games or more was reliever Brad Lidge, who lost eight in a row over 57 appearances from April 18-Sept. 23, 2009. "Made a mistake to Morneau," Kendrick said. "That first run. It was a replay. I guess thats why we have it, but its frustrating when it doesnt go (your way)." Colorado got on the scoreboard when home plate umpire and crew chief Tim Welke ruled Nolan Arenado safe on a bang-bang play at the plate in the third after initially calling him out. Weiss asked Welkee to take another look at the play, and after viewing the replay, the umpire determined that catcher Carlos Ruiz had blocked the plate before he received the throw home in violation of new collision rules instituted this season to better protect catchers and base runners. Rafa Silva Jersey. Arenado scored from first on D.J. LeMahieus single that rolled through the right-centre gap. The reversal went into the books as a crew chief review rather than a managers challenge. "Its amazing how that one rule changes the game, kind of," Arenado said. "Fortunately enough, it benefited us and I guess when youre on the other side, its probably going to rub you the wrong way a little bit." Carlos Gonzalez opened the fourth with a single and Morneau drove a 1-1 pitch from Kendrick into the right field bleachers above the scoreboard for his third homer of the season to make it 3-0. The Phillies didnt get on the board until the eighth. Lyles gave up a leadoff single to Cody Asche and was relieved by Boone Logan. Pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr. reached on Logans throwing error, with Asche moving to second. Logan then retired the next three batters, giving up a run on Jimmy Rollins grounder and striking out Chase Utley with Mayberry on second base to end the inning. Philadelphia has only scored three runs in its last four games. "Youre going to go through ruts in the season," Kendrick said. "You want to get out of it as quick as you can. Hopefully tomorrow we can swing it and score some runs. Things can turn quick." NOTES: The Phillies selected the contract of RHP Shawn Camp from Triple A Lehigh Valley, filling the roster spot of RHP Jonathan Pettibone, who was optioned to Lehigh Valley the night before. The Phillies will have to make another roster move when LHP Cole Hamels (left biceps tendinitis) is expected to be reinstated from the disabled list in time to start Wednedays game at Los Angeles. Hamels is one win shy of 100 for his career. ... Rockies OF-INF Michael Cuddyer missed a second straight game with a sore left hamstring. He remains day to day. ... Arenados leadoff single in the third inning extended his hitting streak to 10 games, matching a career best. ... RHP Roberto Hernandez (1-0) is slated to start Sundays series finale for the Phillies against Rockies RHP Juan Nicasio (2-0).
