Panthers Beat Senators For Fifth Straight Win
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) ? Tom Gilbert and Tomas Kopecky scored in the final three minutes, and the Florida Panthers topped the Ottawa Senators 4-2 on Thursday night for their fifth straight win.
Gilbert beat Craig Anderson with a one-timer off a pass from Tomas Fleischmann with 2:32 left and only two seconds remaining in a high-sticking penalty to Senators forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau.
One minute later, with the Senators on a power play, Erik Karlsson fell in the Panthers' zone, allowing Kopecky to break out on a 2-on-1 rush. He elected to shoot, and beat Anderson with 1:41 remaining.
Jimmy Hayes, in the first period, and Aleksander Barkov, in the second, also scored for the Panthers (14-17-50), who got 32 saves from Scott Clemmensen.
Chris Neil and Jason Spezza scored for the Senators (14-17-6), who have lost two straight and three of four.
