Craig Anderson made 34 saves for his first shutout of the season, Jason Spezza scored twice, and the Ottawa Senators beat the surging New York Rangers 3-0 on Thursday night. Milan Michalek also scored for the Senators, who have won five straight at Madison Square Garden and seven of eight there (7-0-1). New York (27-10-4), which entered with the most points in the NHL, had won five straight and 10 of 11. Anderson's seventh career shutout, and first since a 44-save effort against Washington on March 25, came nearly two years after Ottawa's winning streak began in New York with a 2-0 victory on Jan. 14, 2010.
