The Buffalo Sabres may have been close to one of their best games of the season. But they still fell short of getting two points Thursday against the Ottawa Senators.

Concluding a home-and-home set with their Atlantic Division foes from Ottawa, the Sabres lost 2-1 on the road, with Zack Smith scoring the winning goal in the early stages of the second period.

Senators goalie Craig Anderson made 40 saves and was named the game’s First Star for his effortd. The Sabres got the one goal past Anderson, but couldn’t get any more in a game that was very much theirs to win.

“It was one of our better efforts, honestly. … We just couldn’t quite get it all to click,” said Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, as per John Vogl of the Buffalo News.

Miller wasn’t bad, either, making 30 saves.

That’s four losses in the last five games for the Sabres, who remain well down at the bottom of the Atlantic Division with seven wins and 16 points through 32 games.

    so sick of this hothead, timebomb and teammate basher. It has now come to the point where every hockey writer runs to Miller after every game to ask if he approves of the teams effort? Let him go to the KHL and bash his teammates there. All this punk does is whine. He whined his way onto Team USA now he can go whine his way to Russia and bash his money hungry teammates there.

      It appears that not many people agree with you (I didn’t vote).

    Good job Sabres! Play a fairly decent game and dominate most of the play, and still lose! Perfect. Entertain fans and at the same time, don’t screw up the best chance at #1 pick.
