RALEIGH, North Carolina (Ticker) -- After some unexpected time off, the Ottawa Senators are ready to try and keep a good thing going.

The undefeated Senators look to tie the franchise record for longest winning streak when they meet the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.

Looking for its seventh consecutive victory, Ottawa has surrendered a league-low 11 goals and has joined Nashville as one of the two NHL teams without a loss this season.

After the Senators posted a 4-1 triumph over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday to extend the best start in franchise history, they did not play their scheduled game Saturday against the Florida Panthers because of Hurricane Wilma.

Daniel Alfredsson and Dany Heatley have scored in all six games for Ottawa. Alfredsson has six goals and 10 points this season and 11 goals and 15 assists in 28 career contests against Carolina.

The Hurricanes recorded their first shutout of the season Saturday in a 4-0 victory over the Washington Capitals.

Cory Stillman had a goal and an assist and goaltender Martin Gerber kept the Capitals off the scoreboard after replacing injured starter Cam Ward early in the first period.

Ottawa was 2-0-1-1 against the Hurricanes in 2003-2004 and has not lost in seven games at Carolina since December 3, 2000.
