Recap: Ottawa vs. Anaheim

Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Hoffman scored twice as the Ottawa Senators roughed up the Anaheim Ducks, 6-2, on Friday.

Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad each posted a goal and an assist, while Milan Michalek and Mark Stone also scored for the Senators, who have won four of their last six.

Craig Anderson allowed just two goals on 32 shots in the win.

"Things went real good for everyone today," said Ottawa head coach Dave Cameron. "When they're all on their games they all bring different dimensions to the game."

Ryan Getzlaf scored both goals while Ilya Bryzgalov gave up all six goals on 31 shots for the Ducks, who came into the game having won eight of their last nine.

Ottawa scored just 2:03 in on an early power play as Erik Karlsson sent a one- timed pass from the right point to the slot where Michalek redirected it in for his third of the year.

Just over six minutes later, the Senators took a 2-0 lead after Mark Borowiecki's slap shot from the left point was stopped, and Stone snapped in the rebound from down low.

"We didn't give ourselves much of a chance when we give up two goals in the first 10 minutes," said Getzlaf. "None of us played well, myself included. I expect better out of our group come Monday."

Skating shorthanded, the Sens made it a 3-0 game as Turris skated through the neutral zone and down the middle before cutting to the left circle and snapping the puck into the right corner at 16:18 of the second.

Hoffman scored his first goal just 41 seconds later to give his team a four- goal edge.

Getzlaf scored with just 44 seconds left in the second as he knocked in a one- timer in front, and made it a two-goal game 1:49 into the third when he flew down the left wing and bulled his way to the side of the net before lifting it in.

Ottawa, though, got one back four minutes later on Hoffman's low shot between the pads of Bryzgalov off a feed from Bobby Ryan, and Zibanejad put the finishing touches on the game with his ninth of the year at 16:32.
