I think that Sauron would have eventually allied himself with the Dragons in the North (had their been any left by the end of the Third Age). As Gandalf said (not the exact quote, but a paraphrase) "You might not have had a Queen in Gondor and you would have gone back to destroyed homes, but for that chance meeting in Bree." It was mere coincidence and sheer luck that Gandalf met Thorin in the Inn that day, and engineered the Quest of Erebor. Since they managed to get rid of Smaug, the last "big" dragon, Sauron couldn't ally himself with such a devastating force any more.
But Melkor also was there, and he came to the house of Fanor, and there he slew Finw King of the Noldor before his doors, and spilled the first blood in the Blessed Realm; for Finw alone had not fled from the horror of the Dark.
