Tim Stützle and the Senators bring the Sabers back to earth

The Ottawa Senators snapped the Buffalo Sabers’ six-game winning streak with a 3-1 win.

Tim Stützle scored twice in the win, while Jacob Luchini scored his first career NHL goal. Anton Forsberg was solid, giving up only once on 34 shots.

With only 47 seconds left in the first period, Tim Stützle jumped on a return from Craig Anderson to open the score 1-0 in favor of the locals in Ottawa.

In the second period, the Sabers responded to a quick goal from their rivals. Zemgus Girgensons took advantage of a long pass from Mattias Samuelsson to break away and make it 1-1 with his fourth goal of the season.

Dylan Cozens then gave the Senators their first power play by hooking Shane Pinto midway through the game. Jacob Luchini jumped at the chance to score his first NHL goal in his fifth game and restore the Sens to a one-goal lead.

Tim Stützle completed the scoring in an empty net to end the game with a brace.
