Flyers center Sam Gagner made a nice move towards the goal, moving Johnson to the right side of the net. Ganger was able to put a backhand shot on goal which looked like it could be the game-winner.
With the puck just inches away from the goal line, Johnson dropped his stick like it was hot in order to get a glove on the puck and batted it away.
Buffalo would capitalize off the momentum, as the Sabres skated down the ice on a breakaway and Zemgus Girgensons scored the game-winning goal to give Buffalo a 4–3 win.
