Barkov scores winner in shootout, Panthers top Senators 2-1

It was Stone's first goal in nine games.

Corban Knight's first goal of the season came in the second period and gave Florida a 1-0 lead at the time. Knight picked up two assists late last week. "There's games where they might get shut down and you got to step up and have third- or fourth-line guys score goals".

For the Panthers, Reilly Smith scored his 7th goal of the season in that game against the Senators, starting a hot streak that now sees him with a team leading 11.

"I overheard Chaser [Sens team-mate Alex Chiasson] say he's a legend, and he really is".

Anderson was the sole reason the Senators were down only 1-0 after two periods.

"You're in the moment, you're just kind of blacking out and playing the game and you're giving your team a chance to win the game", said Anderson.

Coach Gerard Gallant, one of those staying in town for the holiday, said he would have liked to have gotten two points and left the Senators with none on Tuesday but is real pleased with what he has been seeing lately.

Jagr kept the play alive by controlling the puck along the Florida boards and allowing Knight and Howden to hop over the boards for a line change.

When asked about the big role Anderson played, Cameron said, "he has been for five years I've been here, it was just another great night by Andy". Chiasson lifted his stick and hit Jagr in the mouth, and while the act was not penalized, it did leave Jagr lying on the ice, spitting out blood and teeth.

Jagr's never been a physical player and he's the oldest player in the league at 43, but he sure showed his tough side by returning to the game after missing just 3:20 of action. "Good teams do that", Luongo said.

These teams met in Florida less than 2 weeks ago on the last Senators extended road trip, and the Senators got away with a 4-2 win.

Injuries sustained in Sunday's loss to the Lightning are a bit of a concern, as both Bobby Ryan and Cody Ceci will be game day decisions.

NOTES: Ottawa called up LW Ryan Dzingel from its AHL affiliate in Binghamton on Monday.
