The Ottawa Senators have been anything but dull to begin the 2011-12 NHL season.

The Senators, under new head coach Paul MacLean (he of mustachioed fame), are scoring and allowing goals in bunches so far this season. After a dreadful start, Ottawa won six in a row.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo Sabres' combination of speed and goaltending, along with a few off-season additions, makes for a challenging opponent most nights.

The two clubs have their first Northeast Division meeting of the season Saturday on Hockey Night in Canada (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 7 p.m. ET).

Join us at 3 p.m. ET on Friday as fans of both the Senators and Sabres praise and criticize their teams online.
