Martin Havlat and Daniel Alfredsson made history with their four-goal performances against the Sabres on Wednesday.

The Senators wingers became only the fourth duo in NHL history to have four goals each in one game when they accomplished the feat in the club's 10-4 victory at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo.

The last duo to turn the trick was the Devils' John Madden and Randy McKay, who combined for all of New Jersey's goals in an 8-0 win over Pittsburgh on Oct. 28, 2000.

Before that, Odie Cleghorn and Sprague Cleghorn scored four each for Montreal on Jan. 14, 1922 in a win over Hamilton. Newsy Lalonde and Harry Cameron also did it for Montreal on March 3, 1920.

"The puck was just going in for us," said Alfredsson. "You don't go out there thinking that something like this is going to happen."

Naturally, they'd love to do it again.

"I don't know if that would happen," said Havlat. "We played well as a team and we had a lot of chances. I think what happens is you get some confidence and there's no question when you get that many goals, you've got to be able to get a little luck."
