Sabres hold off Senators

(TSX / STATS) -- BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Slowly but surely, things are beginning to turn around for the Buffalo Sabres.

In a battle between the bottom two teams in the Atlantic Division, the Sabres topped the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night in a 3-2 victory. It was a complete effort from start to finish from the Sabres, who have enjoyed better performances of late after a dreadful month of November.

Buffalo has points in its last four games (2-0-2) after losing 11 of 12 games (1-9-2).
