NASHVILLE, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- Brian Elliott made 25 saves and won for the first time in almost a month Thursday, lifting the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 decision over Nashville.
The Senators won for only the third time in eight games, but Elliott has endured a more difficult stretch than that. He had appeared in seven straight games without a triumph, having last won Nov. 27 when he shut out Toronto.
Pekka Rinne suffered the loss while making 28 saves. It was his first start since Dec 1.
