The Senators this week

Buffalo has been decidedly mediocre — a 15-12-2 record, scoring and allowing 79 goals — barely clinging to a playoff position.

Sabres fans are still waiting for the rewards from the high priced offseason moves (adding Christian Erhoff and Ville Leino and re-signing Tyler Myers to a colossal extension). Buffalo has been decidedly mediocre — a 15-12-2 record, scoring and allowing 79 goals — barely clinging to a playoff position. The Sabres have struggled at home (7-9-2).

Nothing could slow down the Bruins during their November to remember – they’re fourth in the league in goals scored (94) and tops in goals against (59) – but star defenceman Zdeno Chara is out at least a week after he left Saturday’s game with a leg injury following a collision with Antoine Vermette. The Bruins have lost only three of 11 games on the road.

The Senators are hoping for a better start than when the teams met in Pittsburgh on Nov. 26. The Penguins exploded for four goals in the first 9: 11 en route to a 6-3 win. Even without Sidney Crosby in the lineup, the Penguins easily rolled to a 6-3 win over the New York Islanders on Saturday.
