Spezza scores in SO, Senators beat playoff-bound Penguins 3-2

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Jason Spezza scored in the shootout to help the Ottawa Senators beat the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night and finish the season on a five-game winning streak.

The teams were tied 2-2 after two periods and didn't score in the third or overtime.

Spezza, who scored the lone goal in Ottawa's win Saturday against Toronto, stopped at the circle during his shootout attempt, stickhandled around goalie Jeff Zatkoff, and scored. Kyle Turris added a goal in the shootout for the Senators.

Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner stopped Beau Bennett and Jussi Jokinen to seal the win.

Turris scored his 26th goal in regulation, and Mark Stone had his fourth for Ottawa, which will miss the playoffs for the second time in six years and first since 2011.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
