Sabres stop Senators

Posted: Tuesday, November 18, 2003

OTTAWA (AP) J.P. Dumont and James Patrick scored 14 seconds apart early in the third and Martin Biron made 23 saves in the Buffalo Sabres' 2-1 victory over Ottawa on Monday night.

Dumont scored from the slot 1:52 into the third to break a scoreless tie, and Patrick added his third of the season at 2:06.

Ottawa defenseman Wade Redden scored for the third straight game, pulling the Senators within one with a power-play goal at 4:10. Ottawa's last eight goals have come with the man advantage, including a team-record five Thursday night against Columbus. Buffalo ended a three-game winless streak. The Sabres have won just twice in their last seven games (2-2-2-1).

The Senators, who fell to 0-6 in one-goal games, lost their second in a row. Ottawa is 2-5-2 since collecting 11 of 14 points while winning five of its first seven games.

Biron came up with a stop on Vaclav Varada early in the second, and made a pad save moments later on Daniel Alfredsson's shot.
