Sabres fall short in Ottawa, 3-1

The Buffalo Sabres fired 44 shots Craig Anderson’s way, but they only one beat the Ottawa Senators goaltender once in a 3-1 loss to the Senators on Monday.

Zemgus Girgensons scored Buffalo’s lone goal and Linus Ullmark made 27 saves. Anderson was between the pipes for his first appearance for Ottawa since Dec. 7.

Evan Rodrigues led the team with six shots on goal.


Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the game’s first goal with 53.2 seconds remaining in the first period, just minutes after Ullmark stopped Connor Brown on a breakaway. On the goal, Brady Tkachuk won a battle in the corner and fed a one-timer to Pageau from the right faceoff circle, who was able to beat Ullmark.
