RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Marcus Foligno had two goals, Zemgus Girgensons scored on a backhand to end a long shootout, and the Buffalo Sabres beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 Tuesday night for their first victory of the season.

Girgensons was Buffalo's eighth shooter in the tiebreaker.

The two squads, which met in the 2006 Eastern Conference finals before the Hurricanes won their only Stanley Cup, came into the game as the only NHL teams without a point.

Buffalo led 3-1 early in the third period, but Chris Terry scored for Carolina (0-2-1) and then assisted on Zach Boychuk's goal that tied it at 18:12.

Foligno had his first two goals of the season, and Torrey Mitchell also scored for the Sabres (1-3).
