Dean McAmmond broke a 2-2 tie for the winning goal 14:23 into the second period. Jarkko Ruutu floated a pass up the ice for McAmmond, who scored on a breakaway ahead of trailing defenseman Ron Hainsey. Goalie Brian Elliot saved 29 of 31 shots on goal.

Mike Fisher scored Ottawa’s third goal of the third period with 1:47 remaining in regulation to tie it 4-4. Elliott stopped 28 shots in his fourth straight start. Dany Heatley scored twice, earlier in the period, drawing the Senators to within one each time. Chris Kelly also scored for Ottawa, which failed in its bid to win three games in a row for the first time this season
Washington came calling 3 days later and Ottawa won by a 3-2 margin. Heatley scored 2 goals again and Brendan Bell had the game winning power-play goal (3rd of the game) with 1:22 remaining to lift the Senators to a 3-2 win over the Capitals. In this game Ottawa’s Peter Regin made his NHL debut.
