OTTAWA, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Derek Roy scored in the sixth round of a shootout Saturday and the Buffalo Sabres escaped with a 3-2 victory over Ottawa.

Jason Spezza found the net in the tie-breaker's second round, as did Buffalo's Brad Boyes. But Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth shut the door the rest of the way, and Roy finally ended it by putting a shot past Curtis Anderson in the sixth round.

Roy also scored in regulation time, as did Jordan Leopold.

Enroth finished with 25 saves for Buffalo, which won for a fifth straight time in Ottawa.

Milan Michalek and Erik Condra found the net for the streaky Senators, who dropped their third straight following a six-game winning streak.

Anderson ended with 31 saves for the Senators.
