BUFFALO, N.Y. - Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson scored late in the third period, and the Ottawa Senators beat Buffalo 5-3 on Friday night to hand the Sabres their season-worst fifth straight loss.

Heatley, Alfredsson, Jason Spezza and Andrej Meszaros each had a goal and assist for the Senators, who snapped a two-game skid and won for the fourth time in six games.

Ray Emery made 36 saves and Cody Bass scored his first NHL goal.

Ales Kotalik, Jochen Hecht and Michael Ryan scored for Buffalo, which erased a three-goal deficit before Heatley and Alfredsson scored. The Sabres played their first game since a 2-1 shootout loss to Pittsburgh in the NHL's Winter Classic outdoor game on New Year's Day.

The Senators are back home Saturday night to face the Tampa Bay Lightning at Scotiabank Place (7 p.m., CBC, Team 1200).

Fewer than 100 tickets remain for the game.
