Kotalik's slap shot from the left circle was stopped by goalie Andrew Raycroft, but Toronto defenseman Bryan McCabe inadvertently knocked the puck into his own net to give the Sabres the dramatic victory.
Chad Kilger had two goals and an assist, Nik Antropov added one of each, and Simon Gamache also scored for the Maple Leafs, who have dropped three of four.
Jocelyn Thibault made 21 saves in his season debut with the Sabres.
Raycroft, making his third start, finished with 37 saves for the Maple Leafs.
Gamache opened the scoring with his second goal of the season, netted with 4:27 left in the first period. Standing to the left of Thibault, Gamache scored on a one-timer off John Pohl's cross-ice pass.
Antropov made it 2-0 at 5:56 of the second period with his fifth goal. Antropov shoveled in a loose puck in the crease after Thibault made a save of Chad Kilger's shot.
Mair cut Buffalo's deficit to 2-1 when he tapped in Derek Roy's pass at the outer edge of the goal crease at 8:12 of the third.
Pominville tied it 37 seconds later when he one-timed Tim Connolly's pass past Raycroft.
The Maple Leafs grabbed the lead back 82 seconds later after Kilger redirected a nifty pass from the right corner by Antropov.
After Vanek made it 3-3 with just under 7 minutes left in regulation, Kilger again gave the Maple Leafs the lead with his second of the game 35 seconds later.
