The Buffalo Sabres may have been close to one of their best games of the season. But they still fell short of getting two points Thursday against the Ottawa Senators.
Concluding a home-and-home set with their Atlantic Division foes from Ottawa, the Sabres lost 2-1 on the road, with Zack Smith scoring the winning goal in the early stages of the second period.
Senators goalie Craig Anderson made 40 saves and was named the game’s First Star for his effortd. The Sabres got the one goal past Anderson, but couldn’t get any more in a game that was very much theirs to win.
