DETROIT (AP) — Lucas Raymond scored 26 seconds into overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

“Our line was all over it tonight,” Larkin said. “He got one when it counted.”

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said of Raymond: “He’s got talent and confidence for sure. He’s got a really good shot.”

Pius Suter and Carter Rowney scored in regulation for Detroit, which won its second straight. Alex Nedeljkovic finished with 26 saves.

Dylan Cozens and Jeff Skinner scored for Buffalo. Dustin Tokarski made 38 saves.
