Anderson makes 34 saves and Senators hand Capitals 6th straight loss, 2-0

WASHINGTON - Kyle Turris and Jason Spezza scored, Craig Anderson made 34 saves and the Ottawa Senators beat Washington 2-0 Tuesday night to hand the Alex Ovechkin-less Capitals their sixth straight loss.

With NHL scoring leader Ovechkin sidelined with an unspecified lower-body injury, Washington generated few quality scoring chances, failing to convert on four power plays.

During their six-game skid, the Capitals have scored just seven goals. It was the fourth time Washington has been shut out this year, with all the games at home.

Ottawa improved to 7-1-2 in its last 10 games, vaulting Washington in the Eastern Conference standings.

Turris scored his 15th of the year with just over 7 minutes left in the second period and Spezza scored his 13th goal on a power play midway through the third period.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
