Spezza also got a second goal as Ottawa won its third straight and four of five. Brian Lee and Chris Phillips also scored.

Craig Anderson backstopped the Senators' win, turning aside all 28 shots he faced for his third shutout this season.

Al Montoya gave up four goals on 27 shots in relief of Poulin.
