SHUTOUTS
Ray Emery stopped just 15 shots for his third shutout this postseason, improving to a playoff-best 11-2 as Ottawa won its franchise-record sixth straight playoff game Monday night, 1-0 over Buffalo. The Senators are just one win away from their first Stanley Cup finals.

BLANKED
Buffalo's 1-0 loss to Ottawa on Monday night was the first time the Sabres were shut out since a 4-0 loss to Carolina in Game 4 of last year's East finals.

POWER OUTAGE
Buffalo is 0-for-18 on the power play in the first three games of its series with Ottawa following an 0-for-6 Monday night in a 1-0 loss. The Sabres, who had the league's best regular-season record, are one defeat from elimination.

He had 25 goals and 35 assists during the regular season.
