Hurricanes Fall To Senators In Shootout

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Ales Hemsky scored the only goal of the shootout, and the Ottawa Senators edged the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Monday night.

Hemsky fired a shot off the post and into the net behind Cam Ward in the second round to give the Senators their third straight win and fourth in fifth games.

Craig Anderson stopped all three Carolina shooters, including Elias Lindholm with the final attempt, to earn the victory.

Mika Zibanejad scored in regulation for the Senators, and Anderson made 30 saves.

Jeff Skinner had the lone goal for Carolina, which got 28 saves from Ward before the shootout.

Coincidental minor penalties in overtime had the teams playing 3-on-3 hockey for two minutes. Kyle Turris had the best opportunity for the Senators but his shot went over the net.

Carolina's Alex Semin had Anderson beaten on a 2 on 1 but his backhander went wide.
