COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Jason Spezza tallied the go-ahead goal on a power play late in the third period Tuesday, lifting the Ottawa Senators over Columbus 3-2.

Just before the man-advantage expired, Spezza joined a crowd in front of the net a sent the puck past Curtis McElhinney for the decisive score.

Stephane Da Costa netted a pair of goals for Sens, who completed a 2-1-1 road trip.

Craig Anderson earned the win with 34 saves.

Cam Atkinson and Wisniewski each had a goal and an assist as Columbus dropped a third straight following a club-record eight-game winning streak.

McElhinney ended with 25 stops.
