The Sabres had the day off on Wednesday and will be back on the ice Thursday as they prepare for Friday night's game against the Boston Bruins at First Niagara Center. After Tuesday's loss at Ottawa, Sabres coach Lindy Ruff called out his team for a lack of discipline after Buffalo took nine penalties in the 2-0 loss to the Senators.
OTTAWA (AP) - Craig Anderson made 42 saves and Erik Karlsson and Erik Condra scored goals less than two minutes apart in the second period as the Ottawa Senators defeated the Buffalo Sabres 2-0 on Tuesday night.
Anderson, who picked up his second shutout of the season, was especially sharp in the third period with the Sabres pressing for the tie as the Senators snapped a mini two-game slide. The Sabres have now dropped two straight. They return to action Friday night at the First Niagara Center against the Boston Bruins.
Ryan Miller made 29 saves in taking the loss for Buffalo.
