PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Mike Fisher scored the second of his two
goals on a short-handed breakaway with 1:57 left in the third
period to give the Ottawa Senators a 4-3 exhibition victory over
the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.
Philadelphia's Simon Gagne had tied it with 3:54 to go with a
shot from in close on a power play after Ottawa's Denis Hamel and
Chris Neil scored power-play goals in a 1:53 span to give the
Senators (1-3) a 3-2 lead.
Forsberg, who missed 22 games during the 2005-06 season because
of groin injuries, had surgery to repair ligament damage on his
right foot on May 15. Initially, he was expected to miss about half
the 2006-07 season. He was selected the team captain when Keith
Primeau was forced to retire because of post concussion symptoms.
