RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Tuomo Ruutu tipped in Jay Harrison's slap shot in overtime, lifting the Carolina Hurricanes past the Ottawa Senators 2-1 on Friday night. Cam Ward made 22 saves for Carolina, which won its first overtime game of the season. The Hurricanes outshot the Senators 38-23, including 29-14 through the first two periods. Carolina dominated the early play but couldn't get much past Craig Anderson, who stopped 36 shots for Ottawa. The Hurricanes had a 5-on-3 power play for 1:52 just past the midway point of the first period, but Anderson saved all their chances. Andreas Nodl scored for Carolina less than 3 minutes in off the skate of an Ottawa defenseman. Nodl's goal was his second of the season -- both coming in the last two games. Filip Kuba countered for the Senators with 2:45 left in the first, sending a bouncing shot through the Ward's legs. The teams remained scoreless until overtime, when Ruutu got his stick on Harrison's blast 1:36 into the extra period. Carolina had not won an overtime game or one that went to a shootout this season, a total of six games. The last time Carolina won a game that was tied after regulation was a shootout win at the Washington Capitals on March 29. Before Ruutu's goal, the last time Carolina scored a 4-on-4 overtime goal to win was March 18 against the New York Islanders. Ottawa fell to 5-5 this season in overtime games. Notes: Tim Brent, Joni Pitkanen and Derek Joslin were scratches for Carolina. Ottawa's scratches were leading scorer Milan Michalek and defenseman Brian Lee. . Ottawa played its second of back-to-back games after beating Florida 4-3 at home Thursday night. . Ottawa won the previous two meetings this season, 3-2 in Raleigh in October and 4-3 in Ottawa in November. . Carolina's Riley Nash, playing his second NHL game, recorded his first point with an assist on Nodl's goal. Nash was originally credited with the goal before replays showed otherwise.
