Brian Boyle gave the Blueshirts a 1-0 lead with a long left-side slapper off a rush that zipped past Brian Elliot's glove and Derek Stepan followed with a shorthanded goal on a rebound of a Fedotenko shot at 15:55 for a 2-0 lead.
But in the final minute, Jason Spezza, storming ahead of Marc Staal, cashed in a pass from Milan Michalek, unsuccessfully defended by Steve Eminger, with 24 seconds left.It was Spezza's third of the preseason.
Shots are 22-18 Ottawa.
Boyle, Stepan, and Fedotenko, if they weren't assured of making the team prior to tonight, may have that question answered if Vinny Prospal (right knee) is headed to IR.
On to the third....
