CALGARY--John Tavares scored his fifth goal of the game in overtime to push the Buffalo Bandits past the Calgary Roughnecks 13-12 Friday in front of 8,721 at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

Tavares, who has 31 points and 17 goals in five appearances this season, scored twice to help the Bandits salvage a 4-4 tie through the first quarter, and competed a hat trick 35 seconds before halftime as the Bandits took a 9-7 lead into the locker room.

Tavares and Calgary's Ben Prepchuk traded third-quarter tallies, and the Roughnecks battled back to a fourth-quarter tie with goals by Jason Wulder at 1:18, Chris Panos at 2:37 and John Kilbride at 7:40. Buffalo's Ryan Powell and Calgary's Matt Green scored within a 1:23 span to create a 12-12 deadlock that lasted through the final 4:11 of regulation.

Tavares, who also recorded two assists, was the game's high scorer with seven points. Powell added two goals and three assists, and Chris Driscoll assisted on five Buffalo tallies.
