BUFFALO - The Senators' longest road trip of the season is off to a bumpy start.

Most recently, because they had far too many passengers.

Ottawa lost its second of the six-in-12 days journey by a 4-2 score Friday at First Niagara Center to a Buffalo Sabres team that was a seller at the trade deadline and has very little hope of making the playoffs.

The Senators have now failed to take a point out of three straight games, officially making it their longest slump of the season.

In the latest, the Senators played down to their opponent's level, despite outshooting the Sabres 37-30.
