Senators Vs. Lightning: Tampa Bay Drops Second In A Row With 3-0 Loss To Ottawa

The Ottawa Senators visited the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Tuesday and dominated the Lightning on their way to a convincing 4-0 shutout of the Bolts. Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson pitched the shutout, stopping all 28 shots that came his way. Just one week ago, Anderson was yanked less than four minutes into the game but he came up huge against Steven Stamkos and the Bolts.

Jason Spezza led the Ottawa attack, adding a late empty-net goal for a hat trick. Spezza took feeds from Bobby Butler and Filipe Kuba to beat Mathieu Garon twice. In addition to Spezza, the young and dynamic Erik Karlsson, a fellow All-Star, opened the scoring in the first period to give the Sens a 1-0 lead.

Tampa Bay now hosts the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night. The Sharks are one of the league's best teams and are coming off a whipping of the Washington Capitals.
