SUNRISE, Florida (Ticker) -- After a slow start this season, the
Ottawa Senators have the .500 mark within their grasp.
The Senators aim for their season-high fourth straight win and
the .500 mark on Friday when they visit the Florida Panthers.
The reigning Northeast Division champs, Ottawa opened the
campaign with 12 losses in its first 19 games. But the Senators
have looked impressive during their three-game winning streak,
scoring a total of 12 goals over that stretch.
Defenseman Wade Redden scored the game-winning goal in overtime
Wednesday to lift Ottawa to a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia
Goaltender Ray Emery made his fifth straight start and turned
aside 24 shots while Peter Schaefer recorded three assists for
the Senators, who improved to 6-5-1 on the road this season.
