COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ryan Miller stopped both Columbus shooters in the shootout as the Buffalo Sabres completed a rally and beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 in a preseason game on Sunday.

With just under five minutes remaining in regulation, the Sabres' Brian Campbell sent a pass to Jason Pominville at the back post for an easy tap-in to tie it.

Sergei Fedorov had scored from close range at 2:59 of the third period to give Columbus the lead.

Ales Kotalik also scored for the Sabres (1-1), who have faced only the Blue Jackets in the preseason.

Derek MacKenzie opened the scoring for the Blue Jackets (2-3) when he stole the puck from defenseman Nathan Paetsch and put it past Miller just 2:48 into the game.

Kotalik made it 1-1 on the power play at 5:13 of the second period, firing in a slap shot from the left circle.
