If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Tuesday when the Ottawa Senators and the Buffalo Sabres meet at KeyBank Center.

ABOUT THE SENATORS (9-12-7): Rumors of potential trades are swirling around Ottawa — even superstar captain Erik Karlsson’s name has been floated about — but leading goal scorer Mark Stone doesn’t think making a deal is a cure-all. “I think the changes have to come with the guys in the locker room,” Stone said. “We have to change either the way we’re preparing or we have to change the way we’re playing and commit to a strategy.” Stone has been held held off the scoresheet in the last four games and is minus-10 in that span.

ABOUT THE SABRES (7-17-6): Evan Rodrigues scored his first two goals of the season to help Buffalo erase a two-goal deficit and force overtime versus St. Louis. Rodrigues was appearing in his third game since his promotion from the minors. “He’s got a good nose to where to be in the right position at the right time,” coach Phil Housley said. “The puck, sometimes in games, follows you. It was following him tonight. He has some good speed, he has really good lateral movement and he gets into those areas to score. It was good to see him get on the board.”

Oddsmakers opened the Senators as -115-moneyline favorites versus the Sabres, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The two worst teams in the Eastern Conference are mired in horrendous tailspins, but one of them will get back in the win column when the reeling Ottawa Senators visit the skidding Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night. Ottawa, which reached the Eastern Conference finals last season, has dropped 11 of its last 12 while Buffalo has lost 13 of 15.

The Senators have lost four straight — three by shutout — entering the final stop of a season-high seven-game road trip against the only team below them in the East. “When things don’t go well for an extended period of time, it’s not a great situation,” Ottawa defenseman Dion Phaneuf said. “It’s not about the coaching staff. It’s not about one aspect here or one aspect there, it’s about us collectively as a team. We haven’t played well enough as a team to get out of it.” Neither have the Sabres, who came close at the end of their four-game trip by dropping a pair of 3-2 overtime decisions in Chicago and St. Louis. Buffalo has had the upper hand in the series of late, riding an eight-game point streak (6-0-2) against the Senators after winning four of five meetings last season.

The Sabres were a 3-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Blues. That made winners of bettors who got St. Louis at -183 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Ottawa lost its last outing, a 5-0 result against the Sharks on December 09. Bettors who backed the Sharks at -150 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
