OTTAWA -- Nothing heals quite like a win streak. Jaylon Smith Jersey . Erik Karlsson and the Ottawa Senators felt good after their 3-1 defeat of the Washington Capitals on Monday, their first back-to-back victory in 51 days and their first three-game winning streak at the Canadian Tire Centre this season. "It feels really good I think," said Karlsson, who was on the ice for nearly 30 minutes. "We really wanted to win this game and they came out pretty hard in the first and had us at the backs for a while, but I think we stuck to it and we were confident that if we just did the things we needed to do we would come out successful." Once again the Senators gave up the first goal, but a couple of highlight-reel goals and strong goaltending was enough to earn the victory. Craig Anderson, now riding a three-game winning streak, was at his best on this night stopping 34 shots. "We battled all night," said Anderson. "We made some mistakes, but its what happened after that. We battled hard; we back-checked hard; we found ways to keep guys from getting to the net. Thats the difference in the game. "I liked our fight and I liked our work ethic and that went a long way to getting us two points." Kyle Turris, Mika Zibanejad and Clarke MacArthur, with an empty-net goal, scored for Ottawa (17-18-7). Joel Ward scored the lone goal for the Capitals (20-15-5), who have now lost back-to-back games. Phillip Grubauer, making his fourth straight start, faced 38 shots. Ottawa took a 2-1 lead on Turriss tenth goal of the season. He cut through the Washington defence and deked Grubauer for a wide open left side, leaving the 20,193 on hand stunned. "I knew I got hooked, but I think it helped me fake the goalie out," said Turris. "I dont think (Grubauer) thought I would be able to get it to my forehand so it kind of faked him at the same time delaying it." Anderson was solid stopping all 14 shots he faced in the second as the Capitals did all they could to tie things up. Ottawa held on to its 2-1 lead with solid play in the third period. With just over two minutes remaining Anderson made a great glove save on Eric Fehr to preserve the lead. "We had great chances to score goals, but we didnt," said Washingtons Alexander Ovechkin, who is now pointless in his last four games. "We hit crossbars, posts and he makes a good save and of course when you make a goalie hot hes going to play hot." This was easily one of Andersons better performances of the season, but he was quick to point out the play of his teammates as a factor in his success. Anderson talked about the teams penalty kill, shot blocking and play along the boards as keys to the victory. "Its stuff that doesnt always show up on the scoresheet like goals and assists do," said Anderson. "Its those little things that make a difference in a game and a lot of people dont realize that, but we definitely recognize it in the room here." MacArthur added an empty-net goal with 34 seconds remaining after Erik Karlsson gave him the wide open net to put an end to a 10-game scoring drought. "I saw he was there and he hasnt scored in a couple games so I knew it was the right thing to do," said Karlsson of the passing play. The Senators got off to a rough start in the first period as Ward opened the scoring on Washingtons second shot of the game 2:11 into the game. Ward put a shot on net and -- unfortunately for Anderson -- the puck went off the goaltenders stick and in. It was the only downside to an otherwise outstanding performance by Anderson. Ottawa lost Chris Neil midway through the first after a collision with Ovechkin. The play looked innocent enough, but left Neil with a lower body injury. Senators head coach Paul MacLean said the injury appears to be something more serious than day-to-day, but Neil will need to undergo further evaluation before a timeline can be set. Ovechkin felt he took the worst of the collision and feels the league should review the incident. He was disappointed that nothing was called on the play. "I think four guys out there didnt do their job. I think they started celebrating New Years too early, right before the game," said Ovechkin. "They didnt see headshots on Neil against me. "I felt like he going to hit me shoulder to shoulder. I was ready for it, but he hit right in my head, right in chin. Ottawa tied the game 1-1 at the 13-minute mark of the first as Zibanejad and Cory Conacher put together a passing play. The two broke in on a 2-on-1 and had a give-and-go before Zibanejad had the easy tap in. Zibanejad has played at centre as Jason Spezza has been sidelined the last two games with a lower body injury and the 20-year-old is making the most of the opportunity. "Mika has come in and played centre and given us some big minutes and played very well," said Senators coach Paul MacLean. Notes: C Jason Spezza and D Chris Phillips missed a second straight game with a lower body injury. D Eric Gryba was a healthy scratch for the Senators. a The Capitals continue to deal with trade demands from a number of players, including goalie Michal Neuvirth who was a healthy scratch. C Brooks Laich missed his third straight game with a strained groin. D Alexander Urbom was a healthy scratch. Andrew Gachkar Jersey .

EDMONTON -- What looked like an easy two-point evening ended up with the Boston Bruins hanging on for dear life. Jarome Iginla scored twice as the Eastern Conference-leading Bruins withstood a barrage in the third period to hold on and defeat the West cellar-dwelling Edmonton Oilers 4-2 on Thursday. Dennis Seidenberg and Brad Marchand also scored for the Bruins (22-8-2), who have won four in a row and eight of their last 10. The Bruins had a 3-0 lead after the first period, but found themselves under siege for much of the rest of the game. "I told the guys that they would come back hard on us," said Boston coach Claude Julien. "I didnt like the goals we gave up for what we expect of our team. They were sloppy, but credit to the Oilers. They skated and showed their skill level and gave us a really tough game. At the end we were just hanging on. Our bench is short and we have been struggling with the health of our team and you could see that it was a matter of winning it in regulation or I dont think we come out of here with a win." Marchand said all that mattered was the end result on the night. "Its a road win and we have to be happy with it," he said. "We know we are not going to put our best game on the ice every night, but we want to keep building. With all of the injuries we have right now, every win is huge." Bruins backup goalie Chad Johnson made 39 saves and was especially tested in a third period that saw his team outshot 13-3. "It was a tough game to hold on in," he said. "Sometimes it is like that. Sometimes you have to hold on. We battled really hard. I thought the guys did a good job killing penalties and battling defensively." David Perron replied with both goals for the Oilers (11-19-3), who have lost two of their last three and dropped to 6-10-2 on home ice. "I dont know if we won a battle in the first period," said Oilers coach Dallas Eakins. "I dont know if we were, The Bruins are in town, theyre one of the best teams in the league and we need to play cautious. You cant play cautious against anybody, youll get killed if you give them too much time and space. But even though we werent winning the battles, I didnt think the first period was as bad as the shot clock showed or the score was. I still felt we had a chance if we could get a goal." Perron felt his team might have deserved a different fate in the game. "I felt even after the first period the score wasnt reflective of the game," he said. "I thought they were outplaying us, but not by that much. Not by three goals anyway. We did our job in the second and were probably going to have nightmares about not scoring in the last minute and hitting the post." Edmonton has lost 11 straight games to the Bruins dating back to 2000. There was a ggood pace to the game in the early going before the Bruins started the scoring. Jay Novacek Jersey. Edmonton starter Devan Dubnyk whiffed on a long hopeful shot from the blue-line by Seidenberg, who was sending the puck in while his team made a line change just past the mid-mark of the first period. Boston made it 2-0 with four minutes left in the opening period on another long shot goal as Edmonton-area native Iginla scored on a slapshot with Milan Lucic providing a screen in front. It was Iginlas first game in Edmonton as a member of any team other than the rival Calgary Flames. The Bruins then took a dominating three-goal edge thanks to a short-handed goal with 1:43 left in the first. Philip Larsens shot was blocked at the point, allowing Boston to break away on a 2-on-1 that was capitalized on when Patrice Bergeron fed Marchand for his fifth goal of the season. The Oilers have allowed a league-high seven short-handed goals this season. Edmonton backup goaltender Jason LaBarbera came in to replace Dubnyk to start the second period. The Oilers finally got on the board three-and-a-half minutes into the second as Perron gained the zone and beat Johnson stick-side with a quick wrist shot for this team-leading 13th goal of the season. Edmonton cut Bostons lead to one goal with two-and-a-half minutes left in the second as Perron picked up a puck behind the net and fought off Bergeron with one hand while hooking the puck around and into the net with a highlight-reel move. The shots were an even 28-28 after 40 minutes. The Oilers pressed hard for the equalizer in the first 13 minutes of the third period - out-shooting the Bruins 10-0 - but were unable to get a shot past Johnson. Edmonton continued to be all over Bostons zone, but the Bruins were able to put it away when Iginla scored an empty-net goal in the final minute. The Oilers embark on a four-game road trip, beginning on Friday in Vancouver. The Bruins follow the Oilers out west to face the Canucks on Saturday.
