- Ryan Miller’s 45 saves tonight tied for second-most in his career and were the most he’s made since he stopped 48 of 50 shots on Jan. 8, 2010 in a 3-2 win vs. Toronto.
- Thomas Vanek’s nine shots tonight tied his career high, set four times before (last: 1/20/13 vs. PHI).
- The teams combined for 39 shots in the first period, two shy of the franchise record (41, 2/2/75 vs. Kansas City). According to Elias Sports Bureau, the 39 shots were the most by any two NHL teams in a scoreless period during the expansion era (1967-present).
- Prior to tonight’s loss, the Sabres had gotten points in seven home games against the Senators, going 4-0-3 in that span. Their last regulation home loss to the Senators was on Oct. 22, 2010.
