OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Craig Anderson stopped 40 shots in the Ottawa Senators' 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.

Bobby Ryan and Zack Smith scored for the Senators (13-14-6), who have earned at least a point in four straight games.

Tyler Ennis scored the lone goal for the Sabres (7-23-2), and Ryan Miller made 30 saves.

This was the second of back-to-back games between the teams. Buffalo earned a 2-1 shootout victory on Tuesday.

Anderson was solid in the third with the Senators holding a 2-1 lead. He made a big early save on Mark Pysyk, and another on Drew Stafford late to preserve the lead. He was called upon yet again in the final two minutes after Milan Michalek took a holding penalty.
