Napean, ONT - The Ottawa Senators came into Saturday night's matchup with the league's top offense and they showed why. Andrew Raycroft played well in the game, stopping 36 of 40 shots, but the Senators top line was too much. Jason Spezza had two goals and two assists, and linemates Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson each had a goal and two assists, powering the Ottawa Senators to a 4-2 victory over the Bruins at the Corel Centre. Brad Isbister and Nick Boynton each scored for the Bruins in the loss.

"We've got to be smarter off the get go and those critical moments in the game, the first minutes of the periods," said Head Coach Mike Sullivan. "We've got to do a better job, especially against a team as fast skating as Ottawa.

"Obviously, they're a top team in the league and they've given a lot of teams trouble, but we've got to be better," continued the coach. "I don't think we can point the finger at anyone personally. We as a group must be better."

Just 0:34 seconds after the drop of the puck, Ottawa's Jason Spezza scored his ninth goal of the season on a rebound over a sprawling Andrew Raycroft.

With just over six minutes left in the period, Bruins forward Brad Boyes forced a turnover and headed up ice. Upon entering the offensive zone, Boyes slid the puck over to fellow linemate Brad Isbister, who stuffed it home for his fourth of the season, tying the game at 1-1.

"(Boysie) made a good pass, and I just tried to go to the net and make a little move there. Fortunately, it went in," said Bruins forward Brad Isbister.

Raycroft came up big, making 15 saves in the period and the teams skated into the first intermission tied at one. In the second period though, the Senators took control.

Only 0:09 seconds into the second period, Jason Spezza capitalized on the power play. Spezza tipped a slap shot from the point by Andrej Meszaros that beat Raycroft for a 2-1 lead.

Ottawa added another power play goal at 15:41 of the second to take a 3-1 lead. Dany Heatley collected a loose puck behind the net, swung around and scored on a wraparound for his 17th of the season.

Ottawa made it 4-1 on a goal by Daniel Alfredsson at 6:21 of the third. With a turnover in the neutral zone, Jason Spezza was able to get the puck over to Dany Heatley, who fed it to Alfredsson for the goal.

Nick Boynton scored a late goal with just 0:19 seconds remaining in the game to cut the lead to 4-2, but it was too little, too late.

The B's next travel to New Jersey to play the Devils in East Rutherford, NJ on Tuesday, November 29 at 7:30 p.m. (OLN).
