Sabres center Ryan O’Reilly can complain all he wants about how frustrated he felt over the first two periods against the Detroit Red Wings. The only thing that mattered to coach Dan Bylsma was how his top-line forward made a difference over the final 25 minutes in rallying Buffalo to a 3-2 overtime win Friday night. O’Reilly tied the game with 4:09 left in regulation and then made a nifty flip pass to set up Kyle Okposo’s game-winner 4:34 into overtime.
