Kyle Turris led the Senators with three points (two goals and one assist), was a solid +3, and won 11 of 17 faceoffs. Milan Michalek (two goals), Clarke MacArthur (one goal and one assist) and former Edmonton Oiler Ales Hemsky (two assists) also had multi-point games for the Senators. Senators defenseman Eric Gryba of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan also set a career game high of +4 on Sunday.
After an opening forty minutes where the game was even at three goals apiece, the Senators dominated the third period by scoring thrice. Jared Cowen scored the game winner at 1:12 of the third period.
Hemsky meanwhile is flourishing in his time in Ottawa and away from Edmonton who he was traded by at the trade deadline. The Czech Olympian now has two goals and nine assists for eleven points in twelve games.
With the win, Ottawa improves to 31-29-14 and are six points back of the Columbus Blue Jackets for a playoff spot. The Flames next game will be Tuesday night in Toronto.
