OTTAWA, April 5 (UPI) -- Jason Spezza racked up four points with a goal and three assists Tuesday, propelling the Ottawa Senators to a 5-2 victory over Philadelphia.

Philadelphia's loss, coupled with Pittsburgh's win over New Jersey, shaved the Flyers' divisional lead over the Pens to just one point with two games remaining.

Mike Richards recorded a pair of power-play goals and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 21 shots for the Flyers, who also dropped out of the Eastern Conference top spot with the setback and Washington's win over Toronto.

The Capitals, with 105 points, lead the Flyers by two points for the East's first seed.
