BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) -- Sooner or later, injuries are going to catch up to the Buffalo Sabres.

The Sabres continue to fight through a host of injuries when they take on the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Rookie left wing Daniel Paille became the latest Buffalo player to land on the injured list, suffering a broken left index finger in a 6-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

The league-leading Sabres learned Monday that right wing Ales Kotalik will be sidelined for four to six weeks with a right knee injury. He was injured in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Maxim Afinogenov, the team's second-leading scorer, heads the list. Jiri Novotny, Paul Gaustad and defenseman Jaroslav Spacek are also sidelined with various injuries as well.

Despite the injuries, the Sabres continue to win. They are 5-0-1 after the triumph over the Flyers. Daniel Briere had a goal and two assists, and has goals in four straight games.

The Senators, 12 points behind Buffalo in the Northeast Division, have won five straight. Dean McAmmond and Mike Comrie scored in the shootout of a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.
