NHL: Ottawa 4, Columbus 3

Oct. 22, 2011 at 11:18 PM   |   Comments

OTTAWA, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek each scored in the closing seconds Saturday, rallying the Ottawa Senators to a 4-3 win over Columbus.

Holding a 3-2 lead with only 36 seconds remaining, it appeared the Blue Jackets (0-7-1) would wrap up their first victory of the season.

But it wasn't to be as the Senators pulled their goalie to add an attacker and Spezza notched the equalizer after a scramble in front of the net.

Michalek then redirected a Sergei Gonchar shot from the point past Columbus goalie Steve Mason with only 5 seconds left in regulation, stunning the Blue Jackets and handing Ottawa a second straight win for the first time this season.

Craig Anderson stopped 18-of-21 shots to earn the victory.

Aaron Johnson, Rick Nash and Kris Russell scored, and Mason finished with 23 saves for Columbus.
