The Senators had a quiet day at the office Saturday.

After arriving in Buffalo at 2 a.m. following a 2-1 victory over the Lightning Friday night, the Senators cancelled practice and went to the HSBC Arena for an off-ice workout.

Coach Cory Clouston felt it was more important to give the players rest than have them take a 45-minute skate.

Theres a lot of hockey in a short period of time and a lot of travel, said Clouston. Were more worried about rest and recuperation than getting on the ice right now.

Clouston also said he will hold one-on-one meetings with the players to make sure their effort level stays strong.

Empty-net impact

Senators assistant Greg Carvel took issue with a report that D Erik Karlsson wasnt on the ice Thursday against the Panthers with Tomas Vokoun out of the net. Carvel said Karlsson did see a shift while Vokoun was gone. Karlsson wasnt on the ice late in the game after Ottawa took a timeout.
