OTTAWA, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Jason Spezza scored the only goal in a shootout Monday, handing the Ottawa Senators a 5-4 decision over Philadelphia.

After Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson had stopped Matt Read and Claude Giroux in the tiebreaker's first two rounds, Spezza used a series of backhand-to-forehand fakes against Steve Mason before sliding a shot past his stick.

Sean Couturier hit the crossbar on the Flyers' final try.

Clarke MacArthur netted a pair of regulation goals for the Sens, who snapped a two-game losing streak.

Patrick Wiercioch and Kyle Turris also scored and Anderson finished with 25 saves.

Luke Schenn, Kimmo Timonen and Michael Raffl each supplied a goal and an assist and Jakub Voracek also scored for Philadelphia.

Mason turned aside 30 shots.
