OTTAWA (AP) - Peter Schaefer and Bryan Smolinski each had a goal and an assist and the Ottawa Senators beat Buffalo 4-2 on Saturday night to tie Carolina for the Eastern Conference lead and end the Sabres' winning streak at eight games.

Zdeno Chara added a power-play goal and Chris Kelly scored into an empty net to help Ottawa win for the fourth time in five games and improve to 9-1-1 in its last 11.

Ottawa held off the Sabres' challenge for first place in the Northeast Division and moved into a tie for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with Carolina, a 4-2 loser on Saturday in Boston.

The Senators outshot Buffalo 49-22, the most shots Ottawa has had in a game this season and also the most the Sabres have allowed.

Ray Emery, starting his 10th straight game in the absence of the injured Dominik Hasek, made 20 saves to improve to 8-1-1 since the Olympic break.
