Ales Hemsky scored the winning goal in shootouts to lead the team to a third consecutive win for the Senators Monday night.
Hemsky was the only one to score in shootouts for both teams.
He also orchestrated a nice play in the first period that led to Mika Zibanejad’s 14th goal of the season. Patrick Wiercioch also had an assist on the play.
The celebrations didn’t last long when Jeff Skinner scored for the opposing team three minutes later.
This was also the tying goal that brought both teams to overtime as there were no other goals in the game.
After 65 minutes, the score was still tied at one on both sides.
Craig Anderson got his second win in a row with a good performance and 30 saves.
His opponent, Cam Ward, stopped 28 of 29 shots he faced.
Before the game, Ottawa announced that the names of Jason Spezza and Jared Cowen were put on the injury list with lower body injuries.
To replace captain Spezza, Bryan Murray called up last minute center man Jean-Gabriel Pageau from Binghamton (AHL)
The Sens seem to be holding on to the small chances they have of making the playoffs. With their three game win streak, they are closing on the Columbus Blue Jackets and eight place in the East. Do you believe in a miracle?
They will try to keep the fun going Wednesday night when the New York Islanders will make a second and last stop in Ottawa.
