MONTREAL (AP) - Jochen Hecht scored on Buffalo's 10th shootout attempt to give the Sabres a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.

Rookie goalie Jhonas Enroth stopped seven of Montreal's final eight shooters in the tiebreaker. He made 32 saves during the game, his first with the Sabres since Nov. 24, when he had 28 saves in a 1-0 loss to Pittsburgh.

Ryan Miller's streak of 31 straight starts in goal for Buffalo ended. He was rested and did not dress.

Jason Pominville tied it at 2 for Buffalo with his 13th goal 6:08 into the third. The Sabres won the shootout 4-3.
