The Senators snapped their four-game losing skid with a 5-2 win on Saturday night in New Jersey.

Ottawa had five different goal scorers in the game and Joonas Korpisalo stooped 18 of the 20 shots he faced en route to the victory.

The game was a defensive battle from the get go despite the 7 goals that scored. The teams combined for only 45 total shots and there were no goals scored on a combined nine power plays.

" I really liked our game tonight and I like ourresiliency," said interim Head Coach Jacques Martin. "I thought we played the right way, we used the whole bench and our penatly kill did a great job."

Mathieu Joseph opened the scoring and gave the Senators a 1-0 lead early in the first period with a breakaway goal on Jake Allen. Ottawa played stingy defense for the rest of the period and Korpisalo was called on only four times including great chances by Erik Haula an Timo Meier.

“I thought we had a great first period and obviously Kasty (Mark Kastelic) got us going,” said Senators forward Ridly Greig. “But after that we kind of let them take over the game just a little bit.”

The Devils managed to tie the game only 23 seconds into the second period on a Jesper Bratt goal. Still in the first minute of the period Tomas Nosek gave the Devils the lead.

Ridly Greig tied the game at two goals a piece with a nifty move in close on Allen at 4:06 of the second period. Just under two minutes later, Angus Crookshank gave the Senators the lead back with a one-timer from the right face-off circle.

The second period scoring wasn’t done for the Senators yet, as Thomas Chabot scored just before the halfway mark of the period to give Ottawa a two-goal lead.

"The game that we saw tonight should be the standard of how we play the games for us all the time," explained Thomas Chabot after the game. "We've seen it at times this season but for some reason we kind of get away from it."

The Senators continued dominating into the third period allowing only eight shots to the Devils as they attempted to mount their comeback. Halfway through the period Drake Batherson powered toward the New Jersey net and lifted the puck off the crossbar and in to make the score 5.2.

The Senators will have a quick turnaround as they take on the Oilers at 6 pm tomorrow win Ottawa. The game is a sell out and will see Dr. Donald Chow inducted into the Senators Ring of Honour so fans are asked to arrive early and be in their seats at 5:45 pm so they can enjoy the ceremony.
