BUFFALO, N.Y., Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Erik Karlsson scored with 1:35 remaining Friday and Craig Anderson posted his 23rd career shutout in bringing Ottawa a 1-0 decision over Buffalo.

It was the first game of the season for the Senators, who gave the Sabres their second loss in as many outings.

A double shutout was working between Anderson and Ryan Miller before Karlsson sent a slap shot zipping past the Buffalo goaltender. Clarke MacArthur set up Karlsson with a cross-ice pass.

Miller had a tremendous effort in defeat, stopping 45 shots.

Anderson made 35 saves and opened his campaign with a shutout after having recorded three of them during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. His career high for shutouts in a season has been seven, established four years ago while with Colorado.
