BUFFALO — The Senators decided to take a day of rest.
After arriving in the Queen City in the wee hours of Saturday morning, coach Cory Clouston cancelled practice and held a off-ice workout at the HSBC Arena.
"We've had a lot of work in a short period of time and a lot of travel," said Clouston Saturday.
The Senators have won a season-high four straight on the road and have won three on this trip — including a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning Friday. They can complete a sweep with a victory over the Sabres in the 4 p.m. start.
While Curtis McElhinney was solid with 34 stops vs. the Bolts, he likely won't get the start against the Sabres. The Senators are expected to go back to Craig Anderson.
