Sunday's NHL Capsules

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Jonas Gustavsson made 21 saves, and the Detroit Red Wings handed the Buffalo Sabres their fourth straight loss with a 3-1 win on Sunday.

Johan Franzen, Daniel Alfredsson and Darren Helm scored for the Red Wings. Henrik Zetterberg had an assist for his 700th career point.

Cody Hodgson scored Buffalo's only goal. The Sabres are winless since a victory in interim coach Ted Nolan's first game on Nov. 15.

Detroit improved to 7-3-1 on the road. Buffalo has lost 11 of 13 home games.

Ryan Miller made 32 saves for the Sabres. He is 2-8-2 against Detroit in his career.

HURRICANES 4, SENATORS 1

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Eric Staal had a goal and two assists for Carolina, and Cam Ward stopped 35 shots.

Jason Spezza put Ottawa in front with his 10th goal just 67 seconds into the game, but Carolina scored three times in the second period.

Patrick Dwyer, Tuomo Ruutu and rookie Elias Lindholm scored for the Hurricanes, who have won 10 of 11 at home against Ottawa. Staal had an empty-net goal with 2:29 left.

Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner was solid except for a costly 6-minute stretch in the second period, finishing with 33 saves.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
