TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) -- Dominik Hasek is one of the primary reasons why the Ottawa Senators are one of the two remaining unbeaten teams in the NHL.

The Senators, who lead the league in fewest goals allowed (10), look to extend their victory streak to six Friday when they meet the Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

After helping the Detroit Red Wings capture the Stanley Cup in 2002, the 40-year-old Hasek played just 14 NHL games in the next three seasons. However, the six-time Vezina Trophy winner is off to a 4-0 start with a 1.93 goals-against average.

Hasek recorded his 300th career victory and Chris Neil scored his third goal of the season Saturday to lead the Senators to a 5-1 triumph over the Boston Bruins.

Tampa Bay lost three of four before putting together its best effort of the season in Thursday's 6-0 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers.

John Grahame stopped 15 shots for his first shutout of the season, Fredrik Modin scored twice and Vincent Lecavalier added a goal and three assists for the Lightning.

The Senators won all four encounters against the Lightning in 2003-2004 and have 13 victories in their 16 meetings.
