Senators vs. Sabres Prediction

I’m on the Sabres here. The Senators just can’t seem to figure out which way is up right now as the losses continue to pile up, especially on the road where they’ve been considerably weaker this season. Buffalo’s been inconsistent, but the one thing Ottawa does consistently is lose. I’m siding with Buffalo in this one.
