The Senators are in tough here, playing a divisional game on the tail end of a back-to-back. Fortunately, they’re coming off an impressive comeback that featured production from several lines and strong play from Craig Anderson in relief.

If only predicting the score was as easy as predicting a Ryan Miller complaint following a collision in the crease.

Buffalo loses another player in Ehrhoff last night, and they have just 2 wins in last 9 and just 7 in last 22.

The Sens must be flying high after that great come back win and Alfie’s 400th. Could there be a let down in a back to back game? Naaaaahhhhh. The Sens usually do well against the Slugs and they are ice cold right now.
Record: 26-12

Erik Condra and Kyle Turris had a pretty good night together the last time Ottawa faced Buffalo and now with 400-goal man Alfie on their line, Turris is well overdue to get his first as a Sen.
Record: 21-16
