TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Martin Prusek made 29 saves for his third straight win and Jason Spezza scored twice Thursday night, giving Ottawa a 4-1 victory over Tampa Bay.
Since replacing the flu-ridden Patrick Lalime, Prusek has surrendered just two goals in three starts. He defeated Philadelphia, 4-1, on Monday night for his first win of the season. He then recorded his first career shutout Wednesday in a 4-0 blanking of Florida.
Spezza snapped a 1-1 tie with 4:29 left in the second period after teammate Bryan Smolinski and Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk traded power-play goals in the first.
Spezza gave the Senators a two-goal lead, scoring on a breakaway 6:34 into the third. It was the 10th goal of the season and fifth in four games for the 20-year-old.
