It's time to get off this ride. The Buffalo Sabres have had a roller coaster season so far. Recently, however, they have been on the downhill swing. Saturday night in Ottawa, the Sabres played a very sloppy game and it cost them a crucial two points as the Senators beat them 3-0.

'"I thought it was one of the better games we played in this building, and Lalime stole the show."'
'The Senators used their own version of the French Connection to knock off the Buffalo Sabres last night. Led by goaltender Patrick Lalime and a two-point night from tough guy Andre Roy, the Senators stretched their winning streak to four games with a 3-0 victory over the Sabres in front of 15,942 at the Corel Centre.'
'"We came out and played hard,'' Sabres captain Stu Barnes said. "We had chances and didn't score. We faced a very good hockey club and came up short — that's the bottom line. We worked hard and it just wasn't quite enough."'
'The Senators improved to 6-0-1 when scoring first and have outscored opponents, 20-6, in the last four games.'
