Buffalo (WKBW.com) No matter what they do, or who they play the Buffalo Sabres simply can't get it going at home. The Sabres dropped to 0-4-1 at the HSBC Arena with a 4-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.



The Sabres played from behind the entire night. Daniel Alfredsson opened the scoring for the Senators in the first period on the power play. Alfredsson tipped home a shot from Erik Karlsson for his first of the night. Tim Connolly would tie things for the Sabres at the 13:58 mark of the first when he put a wrister by Brian Elliott.



The Sabres trailed 2-1 in the second when Connolly would score his second of the game, also on a wrister past Elliott. Ottawa would retake the lead at 10:44 in the second when Alfredsson beat Ryan Miller finishing off a two-on-one to put the Senators up 3-2.



The Sabres had their chances in the third, they outshot the Senators 20-5 but couldn't beat Elliott for the equalizer. Alfredsson would finish off his hattrick scoring on the empty net for his 1,000th career point.



The Sabres play their next four games on the road starting Saturday in New Jersey.
