Pominville tribute lifts Sabres to 9-2 win over SenatorsMore

"We thought about it, we looked at it and we know it's a home game Sunday, it's Tampa, a high-end team and all that, but I just felt Andy played a great game against Buffalo".

Pominville was honored prior to the game for playing in his 1,000th National Hockey League game on Thursday and was presented with a silver sabre by Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula. Video tributes from current and former teammates, as well as Pominville's wife and two young children, were played throughout the game. He picked up the 316th win of his career, leaving him just three shy of countryman Miikka Kiprusoff's 319 - the most by a Finnish netminder in the National Hockey League.

The rout of the Senators marked the first time the Sabres (7-5-2) scored nine goals since January 27, 2009, when they beat the Edmonton Oilers 10-2.

Pominville would get a goal of his own for his second point of the night minutes later, making it 3-0 Sabres in the first period. The last time they scored nine goals at home was a 10-1 win over Atlanta on January 18, 2008.

"I think that's something we're trying to take more pride in, is playing better in front of our home fans, " Eichel said.

The Senators trimmed the deficit to 5-1 in the second on Max McCormick's goal, but it was short-lived.

The Senators have lost five of their last six and have allowed 30 goals during that stretch. Skinner put the Sabres up 2-0 less than a minute and a half later at 6:28, and Pominville extended the lead to 3-0 when he scored on a rebound at 14:25.

Prior to Houston, he spent time (2014-16) with the San Francisco 49ers, appearing in 26 games during his stint with the club. Ellington might be the Lions' new slot receiver after they traded Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles a week ago.

Okposo opened the scoring a little over five minutes in on rising slap shot from outside the right circle.

The Rangers (5-7-1) will be playing in front of their home fans for the first time since October 23, when they beat the Florida Panthers 5-2.

Don't fret, he'll be back to work Saturday afternoon in the Senators' net.

Sheary scored Buffalo's seventh goal on a breakaway 7:48 into the second period.

Patrik Berglund increased the lead to seven with a goal part way through the third period.

Sabres defenseman Rasmus Dahlin left in the second period and did not return. Dahlin was injured when blocking a shot by Matt Duchene but according to Phil Housley, Dahlin will be travelling with the team for the next game at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers tomorrow. Buffalo is in the midst of playing three of 12 games at home after opening the season with a four-game homestand.

Craig Anderson was given Friday off before the Ottawa Senators made their way here. Sabres F Sam Reinhart had two assists and now has eight points in Buffalo's seven wins and none in seven losses. 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.
