Win a game, lose a game.  That's the way it's been for the Buffalo Sabres during the first eight games in February, but on Tuesday night in Ottawa it was their turn to put one in the winning column with a come from behind victory over the Senators.  Justin Bailey's tip of a shot by Jake McCabe in the third period put the Sabres on top 3-2 and the Sabres held on to beat Ottawa for the fourth time in five games this season. 

The Sabres got on the board early when Ryan O'Reilly scored just 24 seconds into the game.  The Senators got that one back later in the first and took the lead during a sloppily played second period by the Sabres.

The Sabres responded early in the third when Matt Moulson jabbed home a loose puck to score the tying goal.  That set the stage for Bailey to win it.  Meanwhile, Robin Lehner stopped 39 of 41 shots.

The victory gives the Sabres seven third-period comebacks this season.  And it also gives the Sabres points in eight straight games against the Senators dating back to last season going 6-0-2 during that span.

An odd stat; it's the first time the Senators have lost on Valentine's Day in franchise history.

The Sabres are back home for three in row, hosting Colorado on Thursday, St. Louis on Saturday afternoon and Chicago on Sunday.
