OTTAWA (AP) -Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson scored in a shootout to give the Ottawa Senators a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Spezza beat Vesa Toskala with a shot on Ottawa's first attempt. Alfredsson also shot and scored on the Senators' third attempt to give Ottawa its second straight win.

Alex Auld stopped Nikolai Kulemin and Lee Stempniak in the shootout after turning aside 25 shots during the game.

Mike Fisher returned to the Senators' lineup and opened the scoring early in the first. Kulemin drew Toronto even moments later.

Toskala stopped 34 shots as the Maple Leafs earned a standings point despite extending their losing streak to five (0-3-2).

Overshadowing the loss, the Maple Leafs reached a deal with Brian Burke to take over as president and general manager.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Michael Cammalleri scored three times, and Curtis Glencross added the winner on a breakaway with 6:31 left for Calgary.

Cammalleri's hat trick goal gave the Flames a 3-2 lead 1:18 into the third period.

Mason Raymond tied it with his first goal in 10 games on a 2-on-1 break on a delayed penalty, but Glencross intercepted a pass at the Vancouver blue line just over 2 minutes later and beat Curtis Sanford with a backhand shot.

Miikka Kiprusoff made 27 saves to help the Flames win for the fourth time in five games and move within three points of the Northwest Division-leading Canucks.

Darcy Hordichuk and Daniel Sedin also scored for the Canucks. They lost in regulation for the first time in 11 games (8-1-2).
