Another one of those rare occasions when the Buffalo Sabres are on a winning streak.  They battled back from down a goal in the third period to beat the Ottawa Senators Friday night at First Niagara Center 4-2.  After Ottawa scored an early third period goal to take a 2-1 lead, Steve Ott scored for Buffalo to tie it.  Then Brian Flynn and Jochen Hecht scored back to back goals 12 seconds apart to put the Sabres up by two leading Buffalo to its second straight win.  

Defenseman Adam Pardy had a pair of assists and after the game he reflected on the trade of Jason Pominville that sent the former captain to the Minnesota Wild.

With Pominville now gone from the team, forward Steve Ott was named an assistant captain and said he was honored

The Sabres have only 10 games left to play.  They host New Jersey on Sunday night.
