Found February 05, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
After jumping ahead of Buffalo by three goals on home ice, Ottawa went the risk aversion route through the majority of the third period, and almost paid dearly for it. In the end, though, the Senators were able to hold off a late Sabres surge, besting their division rival by a final score of 4-3. Erik Karlsson (31:21 TOI, 1G) and Peter Regin (0G/2A) led the way for the Ottawa Senators. Jordon L...

Da Thoughts On Da Costa

Stephane Da Costa has been recalled by the Ottawa Senators. For the second time in two seasons, it seems like Da Costa may be looked at as an internal candidate to fill that second line center role, after Regin failed to grasp it. At practice today Zack Smith was elevated to the second line, with Regin demoted to the third. Da Costa was practicing between Condra and JOB...

Senators 4, Sabres 3

Chris Neil scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal in the second period and Craig Anderson made 20 saves as the Ottawa Senators hung on for a 4-3 victory against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night. Erik Karlsson, Chris Phillips and Daniel Alfredsson scored for Ottawa, and Peter Regin picked up his first points of the season with two assists. The win snapped a two-game...

Sabres-Senators Preview

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean doesn't seem to be overly concerned about his team's faltering offense. Perhaps returning home has given him some extra confidence. The Senators go for their first season-opening five-game home point streak since the 2000-01 season when they renew their Northeast Division rivalry with the struggling Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night. With...

Hurricanes-Senators Preview

The Ottawa Senators survived a rare sub-par performance from goalie Craig Anderson in their last game to continue their winning ways at home. The Carolina Hurricanes, though, may threaten their streak now that it appears their starting netminder has returned to his elite form. The Senators will try to win their fourth straight on their home ice on Thursday night when they host...

Kevin Freiheit: Comeback falls short

The Sabres’ woes continued Tuesday night in Ottawa as they fell behind early and ended up losing 4-3 at Scotiabank Place. Down 4-1, the Sabres comeback attempt fell just short as they could not manage to tie the game late in the third period. Chris Neil was left all alone in front of the Sabres net in the second period and he capitalized on his opportunity to put his team...

Travis Yost: Love and Hate

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- LOVE -- Sunday's game between the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens, save one egregious penalty call on Jakob Silfverberg that almost certainly cost the road team a point. Beyond the penalty, I thought it was a pretty quality affair -- Montreal looked like the better team in the first-half of the game, but the usual affinity...

Travis Yost: Buffalo/Ottawa Zone Exit Data

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The first-period of last night's game between the Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres was quite interesting. It was probably the only twenty-minute window that wasn't directly influenced by score effects, and as such, provided us with a healthy amount of relevant data. Perhaps the most noticeable difference between the two sides...
