I think it helps a little bit when youre able to get a couple points on the power play at the beginning of the game. It kind of settles you down.Ryan OReilly had two goals and an assist for Buffalo, and Kyle Okposo and Sam Reinhart also scored.Its a momentum thing, OReilly said. You go out there and you watch (Eichels) line and theyre possessing and hes making plays and creating and coming on right after that its the same thing, you kind of feed off that.The power play too, once he gets the puck its so tough for people to get it off him.Robin Lehner started and gave up one goal on six shots before leaving late in the first period. Anders Nilsson replaced him and stopped 26 shots for Buffalo.Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said Lehner is day to day with a hip injury.Mike Hoffman had three goals and an assist for the Senators, and Mark Stone also scored in his 200th NHL game.

At the end of the day youve got to win the special teams battle or tie it to give yourself a chance. Usually were pretty good, but we just werent able to shut those guys down for some reason.Senators coach Guy Boucher said his teams slow start was the difference.Thats what killed us, thats what sank us, Boucher said. I think our guys showed, like usual, a resiliency in coming back and we wanted it to be a one-goal game coming into the third so we did that. So we were only one goal behind, but then we didnt get the goal.OReilly extended Buffalos lead to 5-3 with a power-play goal with 3:17 left.Hoffman got the Senators within one on the games fifth power-play goal with 1:31 remaining to complete his hat trick with his seventh of the season, but that was as close as Ottawa got.Trailing 3-1, Stone got the Senators within one on a power-play goal at 8:20 of the second after pouncing on a loose puck.
