Sabres score nine in win against Senators

Sabres score nine in win against Senators

Jeff Skinner and Jason Pominville each had two goals as the Buffalo Sabres steamrolled the Ottawa Senators 9-2 on Saturday afternoon at KeyBank Center.

Any nine-goal outburst will be warmly greeted of course, but the Sabres were particularly pleased to bust out at home on the same afternoon the team honored Jason Pominville for playing in 1,000 National Hockey League games. "Just a lot of people that meant a lot to me throughout my career and a lot of great players and a lot of great memories with all of them. Yeah, it was pretty emotional at times".

Linus Ullmark made 27 saves in the Buffalo net while improving to 3-0-1 on the season.

Buffalo scored nine goals in a game for the first time since a 10-2 win over at Edmonton on January 27, 2009.

Pominville extended his point streak to seven games, his longest since 2014, when he played for the Minnesota Wild.

The Senators trimmed the deficit to 5-1 in the second on Max McCormick's goal, but it was short-lived. He has faced 162 shots in the club's past four games and has allowed only 14 goals in that stretch.

Negotiations are still continuing, and therefore we are 95 per cent of the way there in relation to the Withdrawal Agreement". Junior minister Damien English dismissed the suggestion that Ireland was "going to be shafted", insisting it was "not true".

Almost a minute and a half later, the blue and gold used a faceoff win to create the second goal of the game and extend the lead to 2-0. The forward was able to settle down a bouncing puck as he skated along the right wing side in the offensive zone, and beat Craig Anderson with a slap shot from the faceoff dot.

Skinner knocked in the rebound off Eichel's shot from the point less than two minutes later.

The loss to the Kings marked the first of three straight games in which the Rangers gave up the tying or go-ahead goal in the final seconds of regulation. The first two came in a span of 13 seconds.

Kyle Okposo, Zemgus Girgensons, Conor Sheary, Patrik Berglund and Casey Mittelstadt added a goal apiece for the Sabres, and Sam Reinhart chipped in with two assists. Skinner's eighth goal of the season was assisted by Jack Eichel and Jason Pominville.

Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar scored short-handed goals on the same third-period power play to lead Los Angeles Kings past visiting Columbus.

The only negative from today's game was the injury to defenseman Rasmus Dahlin. Coach Phil Housley said Dahlin will be evaluated Sunday and is expected to make the trip for Sunday's game against the New York Rangers. Senators rookie F Brady Tkachuk skated Friday for the first time since injuring his leg on October 15. The wins over the San Jose Sharks and the Ducks salvaged what could have been a discouraging road trip for NY, which opened the Western Conference swing by dropping two in a row to the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings.
