The Buffalo Sabres began a five-game homestand on Wednesday night, and it started with an embarrassing 6-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators, officially ending any chance at making the playoffs.

Buffalo (34-34-5) gave up five first-period goals, four of which came in the first nine minutes, and the game was over after that as Ottawa (31-36-4) cruised to victory.

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen gave up four goals on five shots before he was pulled for Devon Levi, who stopped 33-of-34 shots.


JJ Peterka and Connor Clifton scored for the Sabres, while Jacob Bryson tallied two assists.

Both teams went 0-for-2 on the power play, and Ottawa outshot Buffalo 44-38.

Box Score

The Sabres will try to bounce back Friday when they host the New Jersey Devils at 7 p.m.
