BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Sabres are trying to climb out of the Eastern Conference basement. While they are rising, the Ottawa Senators are headed in the opposite direction.

Rasmus Ristolainen had two assists as Buffalo extended its season-best point streak to four games at 2-0-2. Robin Lehner made 24 saves to improve to 7-0-2 against his former team.
