Senators beat Islanders in shootout

OTTAWA - Ryan Shannon scored the deciding shootout goal to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 win over the Islanders last night.

Shannon delivered Ottawa's third straight shootout score after Alex Kovalev and Mike Fisher beat Dwayne Roloson with the Senators' first two shots.

After Frans Nielsen and Rob Schremp scored on the Islanders' first two shots, Pascal Leclaire stopped John Tavares on the Islanders' final attempt.

Schremp had given the Islanders a 1-0 lead with a power-play goal 7:55 into the second. But Chris Kelly and Peter Regin scored later in the period to give Ottawa the lead. It took a video review to confirm Regin's goal.

Jon Sim scored 56 seconds into the third period to draw the Islanders even at 2.

Schremp, who scored the only shootout goal in the Islanders' 2-1 win over Columbus on Tuesday, got his second goal of the season when he took Mark Streit's setup pass and snapped a shot past Leclaire from the right side.

Matt Carkner drew each of Ottawa's three penalties in the opening period, including a double-minor for roughing after he threw couple of quick punches in Tim Jackman's face following the buzzer.

Jackman, who had checked former Islander Chris Campoli into the end boards as time expired, was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons to have his eye checked, an Islanders spokesman said. - AP
