GIVEN HOW poorly Buffalo was playing 2 months ago, defenseman Tyler Myers is certain it would have let this one slip away. It's a much different story in March, now that the surging Sabres have climbed back in the hunt for a playoff spot. Buffalo allowed the tying goal with 5 seconds left in regulation, but Myers scored 2:01 into overtime to secure a 3-2 win over the visiting Montreal Canadiens last night. "Two months ago, I would say it would've been very tough with our group," Myers said, noting how the Sabres might have allowed frustration to settle in after Montreal's David Desharnais forced overtime by scoring during a wild scramble in front.

A PERSON familiar with the NHL's plan said the Detroit Red Wings will play the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2013 Winter Classic. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity yesterday because the league isn't expected to announce the matchup until today. Earlier yesterday, the University of Michigan Board of Regents authorized the athletic department to seek a contract with the NHL that would allow the league to hold next year's showcase at Michigan Stadium. The recommendation also said the Winter Classic would be scheduled for Jan. 1, 2013, with an alternate date of Jan. 2. Buffalo, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia have all hosted the Winter Classic, but a game at Michigan Stadium could draw the league's largest crowd.
