Spezza, Fisher help Senators beat Lightning @NHL

REGINA, Saskatchewan (AP) -Jason Spezza and Mike Fisher each had a goal and an assist to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night.

Fisher opened the scoring early in the first when he put a wrister past Lightning goalie Antero Nittymaki. It was Fisher's fourth goal in his last two exhibition games.

Alex Kovalev made it 2-0 for the Senators as he converted a nifty feed from Spezza midway through the second.

Spezza added a goal in the third when he picked up his own rebound and put it in to make it 3-1.

Carter Ashton scored Tampa Bay's lone goal in the second period when he took a pass from Steve Downie and tipped it in.
