According to TSN, Flames center Matt Stajan scored the overtime winner 42 seconds into the extra period on Saturday afternoon as the Calgary Flames defeated the Buffalo Sabres 2-1.

With the victory, the Flames improved to 13-15-4 and are eleven points back of the Minnesota Wild for a playoff spot.

A major reason for the Flames' victory Saturday was the play of forward Paul Byron, who registered two points in his second consecutive game. According to Rob Kerr of Rogers Sportsnet, Flames head coach Bob Hartley has really been pleased with the play of Byron as of late, and told Kerr "he is playing like a player who is 6'3"", rather than his 5'7" height.

The game in Buffalo for the Flames was their first of a five game road trip. They will also visit the New York Rangers Sunday, the Boston Bruins Tuesday, the Detroit Red Wings Thursday and the Pittsburgh Penguins next Saturday.

The Flames also saw the return Saturday of rookie forward Sean Monahan, who had been out since November 28 with a broken foot. He had two shots on net and only won three of ten faceoffs in 15:20 of action.
