NHL.com @NHL

NEWARK, N.J. - Craig Anderson made 34 saves, and Kyle Turris scored two goals as the Ottawa Senators beat the New Jersey Devils 2-0 on Wednesday night.

Anderson earned his third shutout of the season and 29th in his NHL career. He had struggled recently, going 2-6-2 in his previous 10 starts. New Senators coach Dave Cameron improved to 2-1-1 since he replaced the fired Paul MacLean.

The Devils, whose losing streak was extended to five games, went 0 for 5 on the power play ? stymied by Anderson throughout.

Turris gave the Senators a 1-0 lead with a power-play goal 2:47 in on Ottawa's first shot of the game. Turris was off balance as he deflected Erik Karlsson's point shot past Cory Schneider for his first goal in 11 games.

He added an empty-net goal in the final second of the game.

The Devils, lethargic at the start, picked up their game after falling behind. New Jersey outshot Ottawa 10-4 in the first period but couldn't beat Anderson.

Patrik Elias, activated from the injured list earlier Wednesday, came closest with a drive that rang off the post.

The frustration built for the Devils in the scoreless second period as they outshot the Senators 16-4.

Anderson came up with save after save and stopped Jaromir Jagr twice early in the period. The first was Jagr's power-play blast from the left circle. Anderson later stretched to make a skate stop on Jagr, denying a 2-on-1 break with Scott Gomez.

Anderson was on his toes throughout the period. One of his best stops was made with two minutes left when he turned aside a wrist shot by Elias.

New Jersey kept pressing in the third, and Anderson made early close-in stops on Elias and Adam Henrique.

Anderson almost scored in the final seconds into the empty Devils net, but his clearing shot rolled just wide.

NOTES: The Devils opened a four-game homestand following a stretch of 15 of 20 games on the road. ... The Senators concluded a three-game road trip. They will host Anaheim on Friday. ... The Devils scratched LW Dainius Zubrus (leg laceration), LW Mike Cammalleri (lower body) and D Damon Severson (lower body). Ottawa scratched LW Colin Greening and D Patrick Wiercioch.
