OTTAWA -- Marcus Hogberg won his NHL first game when Anthony Duclair scored 2:40 into overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 5-4 victory against the Nashville Predators at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday.
"It was amazing," said Hogberg, who made 33 saves and was 0-3-2 in seven NHL games prior. "I was really happy in that moment. Really happy. ... I just said to myself, 'Just be patient.' I tried to play my game and just focus on the next save. Today, it was my first win, so I'm really happy about that."
Duclair one-timed a pass from Thomas Chabot on the power play for his 20th goal of the season, tying his NHL career high set in 2015-16 with the Arizona Coyotes.

"It's a good feeling," Duclair said. "I'm just happy the way things have been going this year. I want to keep going. I think I've obviously got a lot of hockey left. … Personally, I think the confidence is pretty high. Highest it's ever been, for sure."

Brady Tkachuk, Artem Anisimov and Vladislav Namestnikov scored, and Jean-Gabriel Pageau had three assists for the Senators (15-18-3).
Rocco Grimaldi, Ryan Johansen and Roman Josi each scored in the third period, and Juuse Saros made 19 saves for the Predators (16-12-6).
"I just didn't like the way we dropped our intensity in the second period," Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "We didn't generate anything and didn't have any attack in our game. I didn't like to see that. It was a good response in the third, but it shouldn't get to that. We shouldn't need that."
Craig Smith scored with a backhand to give the Predators a 1-0 lead at 11:16 of the first.
Colin White tied it 1-1 at 3:02 of the second with his first goal in 19 games. Namestnikov scored shorthanded on a Pageau rebound 50 seconds later to make it 2-1 at 3:52.
"When our mentality is to work, we can stay in the games," Senators coach D.J. Smith said. "We get opportunities and we work for opportunities. When we cheat the game a little bit, which I thought we did a little bit in the first, they could've put a number on us there. I thought we bounced back hard in the second period. We don't lay down; we work. You're not going to win every game, but tonight I thought in the second period certainly we pushed back."

Anisimov took a pass in front of the net from Namestnikov and scored with a wrist shot to make it 3-1 at 18:41 of the second.
"Especially in the second, I thought we kind of just left a couple guys right in front," Josi said. "That's how they scored their goals. They were all alone in front of [Saros] and we've got to be better in front of our net."
Tkachuk scored a power-play goal with a wrist shot off the right post to make it 4-1 at 1:20 of the third. Grimaldi got the Predators within 4-2 15 seconds later at 1:35.
Ryan Ellis' pass deflected in off Johansen's skate on the power play at 9:39 to make it 4-3. Josi went end-to-end, deked Senators defenseman Cody Goloubef and beat Hogberg with a backhand to tie it 4-4 at 13:07.
"I was just kind of skating down the wing and I was just kind of waiting for the [defenseman] to make a move," Josi said. "Once he made his move, I tried to go to the middle."
The Senators went 2-for-4 on the power play.
"Our power play wins us the game tonight," D.J. Smith said. "We've struggled in spurts, but it's been a lot better [as] of late. It gets two tonight, so it's good for them."

They said it
"It's a huge point for us. But at the same time, we've got to realize that we've got to play for 60 minutes and we can't take periods off. I thought we did in the second. It's just not going to get you a lot of wins in this league." -- Predators defenseman Roman Josi
"I didn't really have any expectations coming into this year. Only stat I'd like to have is 82 games. I had 81 my rookie year, missed one because I was sick, but stats-wise that's what I'm aiming for. If I'm in the lineup every night, that means I'm being consistent and helping the team win." -- Senators forward Anthony Duclair
