After the previous shootout loss to the same team, which also saw a lot of fisticuffs, Ottawa dished out a similarly tight 6-5 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. Thursday night saw the divisional rivals go at each other in a shoot-out win in Buffalo. This time, in the Canadian capital, the Sens came out winners when Jason Spezza scored his second goal of the night on a power play with 4:07 remaining in the third period. The match also saw Dany Heatley score his team leading 36th goal and goals by Christoph Schubert, Chris Kelly & Daniel Alfredsson. The Sens’ Mike Comrie had a shoving fight with Sabre’s forward Derek Roy (who ironically is a native of Ottawa), while Chris Neil duked it out with Adam Mair. Ray Emery came out the winner against the tandem goalkeeping of Buffalo’s Martin Biron & Ryan Miller, who came on in the 9th minute of the second Period. The standings in the East after the match were Buffalo 1st with 87 points and Ottawa 4th on 76 points.
