Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson scored in a shoot-out to give the Ottawa Senators a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs last night.

Alex Auld stopped Nikolai Kulemin and Lee Stempniak in the shoot-out after turning aside 25 shots during the game. Toronto's loss was its fifth in a row. Mike Fisher returned to the Senators' lineup and opened the scoring early in the first.

Brad Richards scored the go-ahead goal and Derek Stepan had a goal and two assists as the top-seeded New York Rangers staved off elimination with a 3-2 victory against Senators on Monday night in Ottawa. The series heads back to New York Thursday night for the first Game 7 in any sport at Madison Square Garden in 17 years. Not even the return of Daniel Alfredsson, who missed three games with a concussion, in front of the fired-up home crowd at Scotiabank Place could help the eighth-seeded Senators complete the upset.

The approach of Hurricane Wilma forced the NHL to postpone tonight's game in Sunrise, Fla., between the Ottawa Senators and Florida Panthers. They will make up the game on Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. The decision to postpone was made because of unpredictable weather conditions as the impending storm makes its way toward the United States. "We rescheduled this game because so many fans and Panthers employees have left the area, and because we want to ensure safe travels into and out of Florida for the teams and the officials," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a statement.

It was an unlikely outcome in so many ways. The playoff-bound Florida Panthers blew a third-period lead for just the fourth time this season. The offense-starved Ottawa Senators scored three goals late in the game. The two events combined were enough to give the Senators a 3-2 victory over visiting Florida last night. Ottawa's first win against the Panthers ended with a flourish, including a shorthanded, breakaway goal by rookie Daniel Alfredsson and a thwarted Panthers penalty shot.

FREE-AGENT FRENZY THREE BIG WINNERS Ottawa: The Senators lost their franchise cornerstone at noon when Daniel Alfredsson bolted.

When the Ottawa Senators ended their players-only meeting yesterday, Daniel Alfredsson couldn't wait to address the group of reporters gathered in the locker room. "You ready?" the Ottawa captain asked. Perhaps the question should have been: Are the Senators ready? Ottawa is facing elimination, trailing the New Jersey Devils, three games to one, in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals, with Game 5 at Ottawa tonight. Alfredsson has been held to one assist against the Devils and was in the penalty box when New Jersey scored twice in its 5-2 win Saturday.
