FINAL: Canes 4, Ottawa 1: The Carolina Hurricanes got three goals in the second period and a three point night from captain Eric Staal Sunday as they ended a recent skid and defeated Ottawa, 4-1, at PNC Arena in Raleigh.

2:23 3rd: Canes 4, Ottawa 1: Eric Staal tracked down a loose puck and found an empty net as the Canes have secured a 4-1 lead and seemingly will end a recent skid.

End of 2: Canes 3, Ottawa 1: Carolina scored three times in the second period as they take a 3-1 lead into the second intermission against Ottawa in Raleigh.

10:57 2nd: Canes 3, Ottawa 1: After his recent recall, Canes top-pick Elias Lindholm scored his second career NHL goal as he worked in and beat Robin Lehner 1-on-1 with a top-shelf shot and the Canes lead 3-1.

13:51 2nd: Canes 2, Ottawa 1: After winning a draw in their own zone, the Canes broke out and Eric Staal found a streaking Tuomo Ruutu who netted his first of the year to give the Canes a 2-1 lead midway through the second period.

16:50 2nd: Canes 1, Ottawa 1: Patrick Dwyer has his second goal in as many games as he took advantage of a loose puck in the slot and fired high of the far post and in to even the game at 1 early in the 2nd.

Justin Faulk and Jordan Staal will get credit for assists on the goal that was a two-line effort.

End of 1: Ottawa 1, Canes 0: Carolina gave up an early goal, followed with some good chances, but the game is 1-0 after 1. Ottawa added a late shot on goal to lead that mark, 12-11.

18:54 1st: Ottawa 1, Canes 0: Jason Spezza scored his 10th goal of the year just over a minute into the game as the Senators have grabbed a quick 1-0 lead.

20:00 1st: Canes vs. Ottawa: Ottawa will play the second of a back-to-back and the middle game of a 3-game road stretch and will face Cam Ward in net for the Canes. Tim Gleason and Jay Harrison will each be Carolina scratches.


PREGAME

The Ottawa Senators aim for a second straight win at the start of a three-game road trip, as they visit the sliding Carolina Hurricanes for Sunday's battle at PNC Arena.

Ottawa had lost three in a row heading into the opener of its current swing on Saturday, but the Senators used a pair of late power-play goals to end the slide and defeat the Detroit Red Wings, 4-2.

Clarke MacArthur scored twice for the Senators, giving him three goals over the past three games and six on the season. Bobby Ryan posted a goal and an assist while Chris Neil also scored for the Senators. Robin Lehner made 34 saves in the win.

With the score tied at 2-2 early in the third period, the Senators regained the lead when Ryan scored on a two-man advantage with over 16 minutes remaining. The score stayed 3-2 until MacArthur provided insurance with a power-play marker with 4:02 left in the third.

"When your special teams can win you hockey games, it's a good sign," said Ottawa forward Jason Spezza said. "It shows that we were organized and focused, and those are all things that are good."

Ottawa improved to 5-4-2 on the road and the Sens can post victories in consecutive away games for just the second time this season with another win tonight. The Sens, who will complete this trek Wednesday in Washington, previously won in Phoenix and Detroit from Oct. 15-23.

The Senators had lost four straight in the series with Carolina before notching a 3-2 regulation win in Ottawa on April 16 of last season. However, the Hurricanes have claimed seven of 10 in this series overall and also have recorded wins in two straight and nine of the past 10 encounters in North Carolina.

Craig Anderson is expected to start Sunday's game for Ottawa. The veteran goaltender is 5-2-4 with a 2.58 goals against average in 11 career outings against Carolina.

The Hurricanes enter Sunday on a four-game slide, but they did record their first point of the skid with Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss at Boston. David Krejci notched the game-winner 1:28 into OT for the Bruins.

On the deciding goal, Jarome Iginla split two defenders between the circles and got goaltender Cam Ward to commit before dishing to the slot for Krejci, who waited for Ward to dive back to the net before roofing the disc to send Boston to its seventh win in its last nine games. Ward posted 35 saves in defeat.

Patrick Dwyer tied the game with a short-handed tally at 11:10 of the third, while Andrej Sekera added his fifth of the season for the Hurricanes.

"Patty (Dwyer) made a great play to get the opportunity to skate in there," Carolina head coach Kirk Muller said of Dwyer's short-handed goal. "Obviously a huge goal at the right time."

Carolina has lost five straight games once already this season, suffering through an 0-5-0 stretch from Oct. 24-Nov. 2.

Beginning with Sunday's test, the Hurricanes are playing three of their next four games at home. Carolina is 5-4-4 at PNC Arena this season and 3-6-1 on the road.

With Carolina playing on consecutive days, backup goaltender Justin Peters could give Ward a rest on Sunday. Peters has faced the Sens just once in his career, as he took a loss despite making 31 saves in the 3-2 road setback on April 16 of last season.

Ward is 11-7-1 with a 2.51 GAA in 20 lifetime outings versus the Senators.

    Was it 3-1 or 4-1?

  • Luv2Camp Nov 24, 2013

    I disagree wlcat609. The Canes have spent alot of money on players. I may be wrong, but I believe they are pushing the salary cap. If so, the problem is spending money on the wrong players.

  • wlcat609 Nov 24, 2013

    It should have been obvious for a few years now that the Cane's management doesn't want a winner, they just want to 'make money'.

    Things need a 'shake up' at the GM level and also player personnel on the current roster (I feel the coaches are doing a good job with what they have to work with but the player personnel needs improved else it will be same old, same old once again). The Canes WERE in second place in their division earlier in the season but look where they are now and the Metro division is the weaker division of the four.

  • Luv2Camp Nov 24, 2013

    I applaued Karmanos for all he has done for bringing hockey to this area. However, until he gets a new captain, the CAnes will continue to flounder in the league.
