|BUFFALO: LAST SEASON: 25-45-12, 62 points. Finished last in NHL standings for third time in five years.
COACH: Phil Housley (second season, second NHL season).
ADDED: LW Jeff Skinner, LW Conor Sheary, C Tage Thompson, C Patrik Berglund, C Vladimir Sobotka, rookie D Rasmus Dahlin, D Matt Hunwick, D Lawrence Pilut, G Carter Hutton.
LOST: C Ryan O'Reilly, G Robin Lehner, LW Benoit Pouliot, D Victor Antipin, D Josh Gorges, C Jordan Nolan, G Chad Johnson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: All eyes will be on Dahlin, the 18-year-old Swedish-born smooth-skating, play-making defenseman selected with the first pick in the draft. Dahlin has such potential, Hockey Hall of Fame
COACH and nine-time Stanley Cup-winner Scotty Bowman says the youngster has the potential to become the best defenseman in Sabres history. Dahlin has already roused a fan base, which jammed the Sabres 1,800-seat practice facility to see him perform during the team's rookie camp in June and a four-team prospects tournament earlier this month.
OUTLOOK: The Sabres can't get much worse than the over-priced and under-achieving squad that won three straight games just once, and endured losing streaks of four or more games seven times last season. Things became so grim, O'Reilly in April revealed he
LOST his passion for playing at times, and a losing mentality crept into the locker room. O'Reilly was traded to St. Louis in one of numerous moves GM Jason Botterill made to overhaul a roster that will feature anywhere between nine and 12 players not in the season-opening lineup a year ago. The question is how long it will take for the newcomers to find chemistry.
|OTTAWA: LAST SEASON: 28-43-11, 67 points. Finished seventh in Atlantic Division and missed playoffs.
COACH: Guy Boucher (Third season, sixth NHL season)
ADDED: F Mikkel Boedker, C Chris Tierney, D Dylan DeMelo
LOST: D Erik Karlsson, RW Mike Hoffman
PLAYER TO WATCH: Mark Stone. Karlsson is gone, Hoffman is gone and the high-scoring 26-year-old forward is one of the only stars left with the Senators as they go into what owner Eugene Melnyk is unafraid to call a rebuild. Stone had 20 goals and 42 assists last season for a team that finished well out of the playoff race and will have to produce at least that much with less talent around them.
OUTLOOK: Pain. It's going to be a rough season in Ottawa and likely several of them after trading two-time Norris Trophy-winning Karlsson to San Jose for spare parts, prospects and draft picks. The Senators are in for a lot of losing and more trades, including pending free agents like Matt Duchene and maybe even Stone to make way for more teenagers and young players.
|Sabres look to snap road skid at Ottawa|
While the Ottawa Senators have a chance to continue some modest home success Tuesday, the Buffalo Sabres again will try to end their longest road slide in four seasons.
The Senators will look to equal a season high with their third straight home victory and hand the Sabres a 13th consecutive road defeat.
Though Ottawa's 58 points are the fewest in the league and the club's season has been filled with drama and disappointment, the Senators are playing the better hockey at the moment. Rookie Brady Tkachuk scored his 19th goal of the season 2:09 into overtime to give the Senators a 4-3 overtime win at Edmonton on Saturday.
The victory salvaged a 1-2-0 trip for Ottawa, which has won three of five overall following a 1-10-1 stretch.
"(The win) was really satisfying," coach Marc Crawford told the Senators' official website. "You need success in order to keep the guys focused in on doing the right things."
Ottawa can focus on taking three in a row at home for just the second time in 2018-19. The other such run came Oct. 13-20.
Tkachuk, 19, scored twice Saturday, and has recorded five goals over the past eight games. Meanwhile, teammate Craig Anderson made 26 saves against the Oilers to snap an 0-13-1 slide for his first victory since Dec. 17.
"It's been a long time coming," said Anderson, who posted a 3.63 goals-against average during his winless rut. "Personally, it's been a tough stretch."
Anderson owns a 4.05 goals-against average in two meetings this season against Buffalo -- three days apart in November. He made 46 saves in a 4-2 home victory over the Sabres on Nov. 1 but was pulled after yielding seven goals in the first period of a 9-2 defeat at Buffalo two days later.
Buffalo last won on the road on Jan. 29, at Columbus. The Sabres' road skid sits at 0-10-2 following a 3-1 loss at New Jersey on Monday. It's the club's longest road losing streak since an 0-13-1 stretch during the 2014-15 campaign.
The Sabres threw 46 shots at the Devils' Cory Schneider, but only Sam Reinhart's 20th, amazingly from center ice in the first period, cleared the goal line. Buffalo has been held to two or fewer goals seven times during a 1-9-1 overall span.
"I thought we played the right way (Monday), but that doesn't make it any less frustrating," said Reinhart, who has a goal in two straight games after going 11 in a row without one.
Reinhart could have had another against the Devils, but his apparent equalizer with roughly 13 1/2 minutes left in regulation was overturned due to goaltender interference. Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark, meanwhile, stopped 18 shots Monday while losing his fifth consecutive start.
Carter Hutton could be back in the Buffalo net Tuesday after making 37 saves in a 7-4 loss at Montreal on Saturday. Hutton has a 3.50 goals-against average while going 0-4-2 over his last seven road starts. He stopped 28 shots at Ottawa in November.
Buffalo's Jason Pominville has gone seven straight games without a point, but he has recorded three goals and an assist versus Ottawa this season.
