If Buffalo fans were hoping for a big comeback game against the Ottawa Senators after losing 4-2 on Thursday night, they got that and much more as Buffalo put up nine goals on 41 shots in a huge victory at KeyBank Center on Saturday.

Jack Eichel’s line that consists of Jeff Skinner and Jason Pominville took the lead on the offensive side of the game putting up four goals and nine points combined.

“I’ll remember this for a long time. The atmosphere in the arena… Top notch. No better place for this happening than at home.” – Pominville

The win gets Buffalo back in the win column after dropping three straight. They now sit in 5th place in the Eastern Conference with a 7-5-2 record. Ottawa will stay in 12th place with a 5-6-2 record.

Buffalo came out of the gate a little slow, but it only took about five minutes for them to get rolling as Skinner knocked in the first goal of the game. 

All but three skaters recorded at least one point, and hopefully, this serves as a big confidence booster for many players on this team including Casey Mittelstadt. 

Mittelstadt has been absent from the score sheet in many games this year, but that should not reflect the level he has been playing at. He finally was able to get his 2nd goal of the season on a snipe from the top of the circle. He also recorded an assist on Skinner’s 2nd goal of the game.

Rasmus Dahlin exited the game and missed most of the 3rd period with an unknown injury. Let’s cross our fingers that it was just precautionary to keep him out. 

Buffalo will look to keep the momentum moving forward as they visit the New York Rangers tomorrow night at 7 p.m. at MSG.
