Heatley scores twice as Senators blast Sabres again

OTTAWA (AP) -- Dany Heatley scored twice to extend his club-record scoring streak to 15 games in the Ottawa Senators' 6-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

Heatley has at least one point in every game the Senators (13-2-0) have played this season. He has 15 goals and 13 assists.

Buffalo, coming off a 5-2 home win over Toronto on Friday night, has two wins in its last nine game.

Chris Neil, Daniel Alfredsson, Mike Fisher and Brian Pothier also scored for the Senators, who lead the NHL with 75 goals and have allowed a league-low 31.

Ray Emery made 24 saves and was just 5:39 away from his first career shutout before 19,414 fans at the Corel Centre.

Derek Roy scored his first goal of the season for Buffalo.

Neil opened the scoring when he beat Buffalo goalie Martin Biron with a second left in the first period. The play was reviewed and it was determined that the puck went in before the buzzer sounded.

Alfredsson scored 59 seconds into the second and Heatley made it 3-0 16 seconds later. Fisher had a power-play goal five minutes later and Heatley got his second of the game, this time with Ottawa short-handed, just shy of the 17-minute mark.

Pothier scored Ottawa's lone goal of the third before Roy ended Emery's shutout bid later in the period as the Sabres avoided being shut out for a second time by the Senators this season.

Ottawa has been especially tough on Buffalo this season, winning all three meetings between the two teams. The Senators have outscored the Sabres 21-5, including a 10-4 drubbing in Buffalo on Nov. 2.

Alfredsson has five goals and five assists against Buffalo this season.

Game notes

Wade Redden earned his 300th career point when he assisted on Alfredsson's second-period goal. In 644 career regular season games, the 28-year old defenseman has 81 goals and 219 assists . . . The Senators are 5-0 on Saturday nights this season and have outscored their opponents 30-2.
