Spezza gets the Sens a shootout win - at last

--

OTTAWA - Jason Spezza always believed he could score in the shootout and on Monday he was finally able to prove it.

Spezza scored the lone goal in the shootout to give the Ottawa Senators a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

This was Ottawa's first shootout win of the season after losing their four previous attempts.

"I'd been good in the shootout historically," said Spezza. "You take pride in that stuff and especially when you're losing games. There was definitely a little extra fist pump and it felt good."

Spezza wasn't the only one feeling relief at winning in the shootout as Craig Anderson was clearly elated after stopping Sean Couturier to seal the win.

"It's about time," said Anderson, who made 25 saves. "I think we've been in this situation a few times and haven't been on the right side of that and (Monday) we find a way to get two points and that's really all that mattered. You've got to be excited about two points."

Clarke MacArthur struck twice for the Senators (12-14-5) in regulation time. Patrick Wiercioch and Kyle Turris also scored for Ottawa.

Michael Raffl, Jakub Voracek, Luke Schenn and Kimmo Timonen scored for the Flyers (13-14-3). Steve Mason stopped 30 shots.

With the win the Senators put an end to a five-game losing streak on home ice.

"Home ice has been a struggle and we want to give the people something to cheer about," said Spezza. "We've been frustrated with the fact we can't win and it was nice to finally send the fans home happy."

Turris gave the Senators a 4-3 lead with his first in eight games as he carried the puck from his own end, moved in along the side boards and fired a shot that went in off Luke Schenn at 8:21 of the third.

The lead was short lived as Timonen tied the game with his second of the season with a floater from just inside the blue-line.

Trailing 3-2, the Senators tied the game early in the third as a Bobby Ryan rebound went in off MacArthur for his second of the night.

"Anytime you go in the third period with a lead you want to keep it," said Flyers captain Claude Giroux. "You want to make sure everyone is accountable for what they do and they were able to get a couple of goals. We fought back and got a point, but it's tough to lose in a shootout."

MacArthur now has 11 points (seven goals, four assists) in his last ten games. …
