Recap: New Jersey vs. Ottawa

Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Jakob Silfverberg's goal in the second round of the shootout lifted the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday at Prudential Center.

After the first three shooters came up empty, Silfverberg skated in and ripped a wrister high over the glove of New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur.

Bobby Butler had a chance to keep the Devils alive at the other end, but his wrister missed the net and the Senators escaped with the victory.

Silfverberg added an assist on Daniel Alfredsson's game-tying goal in the third period, while Ben Bishop stopped 30-of-31 shots and all three shooters in the shootout to help Ottawa put the brakes on a two-game skid.

"I thought Ben Bishop played very well for us in the first period to keep it 1-0," Ottawa coach Paul MacLean said. "After that I thought we came out and played hard and deserved the points."

Stephen Gionta scored the lone New Jersey goal and Brodeur made 29 saves for the Devils, who have lost two straight and three of their last four.

New Jersey jumped in front just over a minute in when Steve Bernier came up with a steal near the top of the left circle and ripped a quick shot that Bishop blocked, but Gionta was there on the doorstep to pound home the rebound for a 1-0 lead at the 1:19 mark.

After Brodeur blanked the Senators in the second, Ottawa found the equalizer just over eight minutes into the third.

Alfredsson took a pass in the slot from Silfverberg on the low right side and waited for Brodeur to drop to the ice before lifting a backhand high over a prone Brodeur to knot the game at the 8:12 mark.

An interference penalty against New Jersey center Andrei Loktionov with seven seconds left in regulation gave the Senators a power play heading into the extra session, but Brodeur and the Devils were able to kill off the penalty and force an extra session.

"We got a point regardless of how we got it," New Jersey captain Bryce Salvador said. "It would have been nice to get the extra one but it just wasn't meant to be."
