OTTAWA, March 23 (UPI) -- Brian Elliott stopped all 26 shots fired at him Tuesday, backstopping the Ottawa Senators to a 2-0 victory over Philadelphia.
With the win, Ottawa moved four points ahead of Philadelphia and the Habs, who are tied for sixth place in the Eastern Conference.
The Senators went up 2-0 in the opening seconds of the third period when Alfredsson connected on a Chris Phillips rebound. Elliott then had to come up big to weather a 7-minute Flyers power play.
Philadelphia, which dropped its third straight and six in eight games, got 24 saves from Brian Boucher.
