Senators 3, Devils 2, OT

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 02, 2012
Daniel Alfredsson scored his 401st goal on a power play 4 minutes into overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. Alfredsson, who scored his 400th in overtime Friday against Calgary, beat Martin Brodeur with 59.4 seconds left in the extra period after David Clarkson was called for hooking 2:58 into overtime. Ottawa's Erik Condra tied it at 2 with a short-handed goal 13:17 into the third. The Senators scored a pair in the third to erase a two-goal deficit. Jason Spezza scored 1:21 into the third to spoil Brodeur's bid for his first shutout of the season. Condra fooled Brodeur with a shot from the right faceoff circle that slipped in under the glove of the NHL's career leader in wins and shutouts. That tied it with 6:43 left in regulation and Spezza in the penalty box for tripping. Craig Anderson made 27 saves for Ottawa, which has won three in a row. Dainius Zubrus and David Clarkson scored in the second to put New Jersey up 2-0. The Devils had won two in a row and nine of 12. Brodeur made 29 saves, including a right pad stop to deny Zack Smith's shot in the first minute of overtime. Anderson flashed his right pad to rob Zach Parise moments later. The Senators goalie was helped by a video review in the first that kept the game scoreless despite referee Kyle Rehman signaling a goal for New Jersey's Travis Zajac. Zajac jumped on a terrible turnover by Ottawa defenseman Brian Lee at the edge of the crease and Rehman pointed repeatedly to the net after the Devils center snapped off a quick shot. Television replays showed that Zajac's shot struck the crossbar and the puck rolled along the goal line but did not enter the net. A loud cheer from the sold-out crowd of 19,573 greeted the referee's announcement that the goal did not count. Zubrus scored his first goal in six games 7:47 into the middle period off a faceoff immediately after Ilya Kovalchuk was denied by Anderson on a breakaway. Anderson squeezed his pads together to deny Kovalchuk, who jumped on Erik Karlsson's turnover to go in alone. Senators center Zenon Konopka turned over the puck to Petr Sykora off the ensuing faceoff. Anderson stopped Sykora's shot but Zubrus slipped the rebound under the goalie's pad for his 11th goal. New Jersey went up 2-0 on Clarkson's third goal in four games shortly after Spezza rang a shot off the left post during an Ottawa power play. Senators right wing Chris Neil and New Jersey's Eric Boulton squared off for a long fight immediately after the puck was dropped at center ice on the faceoff following Clarkson's goal. Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips left the game after Zubrus' goal. He sustained an upper-body injury and did not return. NOTES: Brodeur's last shutout - which extended his record to 116 - was on March 25, when he stopped 27 shots in a 1-0 shootout loss at Pittsburgh. ... Devils coach Peter DeBoer used his timeout with 6.5 seconds left in the third. ... Neil played his 690th regular-season game to move past Radek Bonk into fourth place on Ottawa's career list. ... The Senators have sold out 12 of 21 home games at Scotiabank Place.
