Franzen's hat trick leads Red Wings over Sens
Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Johan Franzen registered a hat trick as the Detroit Red Wings posted a 6-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.
Riley Sheahan, Tomas Jurco and Tomas Tatar also scored for the Red Wings, who have won their first two games following the Olympic break and five of seven overall. Niklas Kronwall had three assists and Jonas Gustavsson made 37 saves.
Bobby Ryan supplied the lone Ottawa goal, while Robin Lehner was pulled in the second period after surrendering six goals on 15 shots. Andrew Hammond made his NHL debut in relief and stopped all 11 shots he faced.
Hammond was recalled from Binghamton of the American Hockey League to back up Lehner because Craig Anderson returned home to Florida to be with his pregnant wife.
The Senators had gone 2-2-1 this month before the Olympic break.
