UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Marcus Foligno scored the tying goal with 2:01 left in regulation and Ryan Miller stopped John Tavares in the final round in the shootout to give the Buffalo Sabres their first win of the season, 4-3 over the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

The Sabres were on the verge of their eighth straight loss, which would've set the club's futility mark to start a season, before Foligno rescued them.

Thomas Vanek and Tyler Ennis also scored in the shootout. Miller allowed a goal to Matt Moulson in the first round, but denied Frans Nielsen and Tavares to win it.

Buffalo erased three one-goal deficits to finally end its slide. The last came after Tyler Myers kept the puck in the New York zone and got it to Foligno for a screened shot past Evgeni Nabokov.

Moulson had deflected in Tavares' shot during a power play with 11:16 remaining in the third to put the Islanders ahead 3-2.

    Just one season of hits in high school football may alter brain

    Even among high school football players who've never had a concussion, a small preliminary study suggests that changes can still occur to their brains within the course of a single season.
