The Sabres improved to 2-0 under new owner Terry Pegula with a 4-2 victory over Ottawa on Friday. After a 47 save shutout performance in his debut with Ottawa, Craig Anderson earned his first loss as a Senator.
Mike Grier put Buffalo on the board six and a half minutes in, converting on a breakaway. The Sabres went up by two midway through the second period when Cody McCormick notched his eighth goal of the season.
After Buffalo failed on a 4-on-1 rush, Jason Spezza accepted a breakaway pass, and beat Ryan Miller to cut the lead in half.
Patrick Kaleta appeared to score the Sabres third goal of the game, but was called for an arguable goaltender interference penalty. Kaleta redirected the puck into the net, but after review, the call went against Buffalo.
