Flynn, Hecht score 12 seconds apart to rally Sabres to 4-2 win over Senators

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Brian Flynn and Jochen Hecht scored third-period goals 12 seconds apart, and the Buffalo Sabres rallied to beat the Ottawa Senators 4-2 on Friday night.

Steve Ott and Luke Adam also scored for Buffalo, and Ryan Miller stopped 35 shots. Defencemen Adam Pardy and Mike Weber each had two assists for the rebuilding Sabres, who are still trying to make a late push for a playoff spot.

Buffalo (15-17-6), now 12th in the Eastern Conference, was coming off a 4-1 victory at Pittsburgh on Tuesday that snapped the Penguins' 15-game winning streak.

Marc Methot and Eric Gryba scored for the Senators, who have lost three straight in regulation for the first time this season. Mika Zibanejad had two assists for Ottawa (19-12-6).

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
