NEW YORK (AP) -Chris Campoli broke up a scoreless game with 1:14 remaining, and the Ottawa Senators snapped a five-game losing streak with a 2-0 victory over the punchless New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Mike Brodeur, a distant relative of New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur, made 32 saves in his second NHL appearance to earn his second career victory. The shutout came two days after Martin Brodeur beat the Rangers 1-0 in a shootout at Madison Square Garden.

Henrik Lundqvist also stopped 32 shots but was the hard-luck loser for the second straight game. He made 45 saves against the Devils on Tuesday and then but came out on the short end after New Jersey's Patrik Elias scored the only goal in the shootout. Lundqvist hadn't allowed a goal in a career-best 127 minutes, 30 seconds - dating to the Rangers' 3-1 win at Boston on Saturday.
