The Senators had a nice bounce back game after the regulation loss in Florida. Tampa is a bit of a mess right now and they took advantage of it. All three of the Sens' top goal getters scored, leading to a three way tie at 18 between Turris, Hoffman and Stone (who added an assist to his two goals for a three point night). Karlsson had three assists in a bit of a statement game, after calling out his team's effort against Florida. The power play was clicking with two goals in five opportunities. Kelly celebrated his 800th game with an empty net marker. Boucher got a win in his first game against the team that fired him.
Sabres lost a heart breaker against the Rangers. Tied it up late, killed a penalty in OT, only to lose shortly after. Are they done? Eight points out of a playoff spot with two games in hand. So close yet, with seven teams to pass to get there it is extremely unlikely at this point. Still, they always play the Sens hard and this is far from a gimme.
