Senators Win 5-3 Over Lightning

A bit closer than they would’ve liked but a big win for the Ottawa Senators Saturday afternoon over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

After Ottawa took a 4-0 lead in the first period, the Lightning rallied for 3 goals in the third to bring it to within 1.  Luckily for the Senators, time was on their side and Daniel Alfredsson’s empty netter sealed it for a big 2 points.

Jakob Silfverberg, Eric Gryba, Guillaume Latendresse & Daniel Alfredsson all scored in a dominant first period for the Senators as they chased starting goaltender Mathieu Garon in favour of Cedric Desjardins.

Tyler Johnson scored twice just over 2 minutes apart in the third period with Teddy Purcell adding the other to close the gap to 1 with just 1:59 to go.

Notes: Sergei Gonchar extended his point streak to 10 games with an assist on Daniel Alfredsson’s power-play goal in the first.  He also extended his franchise record for most consecutive games with an assist to 10 games.

The goal for Eric Gryba was his first in the National Hockey League.
