Recap: Detroit vs. Ottawa

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Weiss scored a pair of goals as the Detroit Red Wings held on for a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Monday.

Gustav Nyquist and Riley Sheahan each had a goal for the Red Wings, who have won three of their last four. Jimmy Howard stopped 23 shots in the win.

"It felt good to be in the lineup and it was nice to get a couple of goals," said Weiss.

Kyle Turris and Erik Karlsson each posted a goal and an assist while Mike Hoffman scored late for the Senators, who have lost three of four. Craig Anderson allowed all four goals on 43 shots in the loss.

"We didn't play hard enough for two periods," Karlsson said. "We really can't let games slip away from us early."

Ottawa trailed by three goals entering the third period, but made it a 4-2 game just 2:43 in as Karlsson wristed home the puck from the slot for his sixth of the season.

With Anderson pulled for an extra attacker, Ottawa got several shots on Howard and he was able to turn most of them aside, but Hoffman snuck the puck in from the slot with 34.3 seconds to play.

The Senators were unable to net the equalizer, though, before time expired.

Ottawa drew first blood at 5:19 of the first on the power play thanks to a one-timer from Turris at the top of the left circle.

Detroit, though, tied the game with 3:15 to play in the first with a power play goal of its own as Nyquist slammed home a rebound down low for his 10th of the season.

A three-goal second period saw Detroit surge ahead and the team got it started 2:23 in on the power play when Tomas Tatar flew in down the left wing and cranked a shot that saw Anderson kick the rebound out to the right wing where Sheahan buried it.

It was a 3-1 game at 13:34 after Weiss jammed home a loose puck in front for his first of the season, and it was Weiss again just over four minutes later when he banged home a rebound.
