April 12, 2013 at 10:03 PM

NEWARK, N.J., April 12 (UPI) -- Craig Anderson made 33 saves Friday to pick up his third shutout of the season and carry Ottawa to a 2-0 triumph over New Jersey.

The Senators won their second in a row and moved two points in front of the New York Islanders for the No. 6 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

Anderson, who has spent the last three seasons of his decade-long NHL career as Ottawa's No. 1 goaltender, has 22 shutouts overall.

The game's two goals came less than 4 minutes apart in the second period with Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Milan Michalek scoring for the Senators.

Those two goals came on a total of just 11 shots faced by Martin Brodeur. The Devils remained four points out of a playoff position.
