NHL Playoffs: Senators Beat Sabres

In the National Hockey League playoff semifinals, the Ottawa Senators scored five minutes into the second overtime Saturday to beat the Buffalo Sabres, 4-3.

The visiting Senators were about to win in regulation time when Buffalo's Daniel Briere tied the game with just six seconds remaining.

Joseph Corvo finally scored the game-winner with a bouncing 13-meter shot. Ottawa also had goals from Daniel Alfredsson, Wade Redden and Mike Fisher.

The Senators rallied after trailing 2-0 just seven minutes into the game.

Ottawa now has a two-games-to-none lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals. The Senators host the next two games against the top-seeded Sabres with a chance to advance to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time.

In the Western Conference finals, the Detroit Red Wings host the Anaheim Ducks Sunday, with Detroit looking for its second win in as many games in the series.
