Recap: Buffalo vs. Ottawa

Buffalo, NY (Sports Network) - Brian Flynn and Jochen Hecht scored 12 seconds apart late in the third period, lifting the Buffalo Sabres over the Ottawa Senators, 4-2.

Luke Adam and Steve Ott also lit the lamp for the Sabres, who sit four points out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.

Ryan Miller made 35 saves for Buffalo, which has won two in a row since a four-game skid.

"Obviously there are a lot of great leaders in this dressing room and we lost a great one in Jason Pominville," Ott said. "I thought he showed up every single night and he was a tremendous hockey player. To throw the 'A' on the jersey and have that representation means a lot to myself, but like I said, a lot of guys in here lead in their own way and hopefully a few guys jump on my coattails and we can ride off and continue to collect points."

Marc Methot and Eric Gryba scored for the Senators, who remained tied for fifth place the East with idle Toronto. Robin Lehner stopped 26-of-30 shots in defeat.

With the score tied at two, Flynn tallied with 5:23 left in regulation. Mike Weber's shot from the point hit off the backboards and ended up on Hecht's stick. Hecht backhanded a pass across the crease to Flynn, whose backhander beat Lehner.

Just 12 seconds later, Hecht spun around with Senators forward Kyle Turris defending him and scored on a backhander from the left circle.

"I personally believe that it's even more important now to stay upbeat, stay confident in what we're doing. I don't think we're that far off at all because it's so close as it is in the League," Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson said. "We're not the only team that's gone through this and we're not going to be the last one either. We'll find a way to weather through this."

Adam's one-timer from the right circle at the 6:21 mark of the first period gave Buffalo a 1-0 lead.

Methot's shot from the top of the right circle at the 12:29 mark made it 1-1.

After a scoreless second period, Gryba tallied from the top of the right circle 1:41 into the third, making it 2-1 Ottawa.

The Sabres tied the game at the 3:15 mark. Mark Pysyk's shot from along the left boards was deflected in by Ott.
