MacArthur sends Senators over Red Wings

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Clarke MacArthur scored twice as the Ottawa Senators took a 4-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.

Bobby Ryan posted a goal and an assist while Chris Neil also scored for the Senators, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Robin Lehner made 34 saves in the win.

Pavel Datsyuk and Darren Helm scored for the Red Wings, who had broken a seven-game losing streak, their longest in almost 23 years, with a 4-3 win over Carolina on Thursday.

Jimmy Howard allowed all four goals on 29 shots for Detroit, which had also snapped an eight-game home losing streak, its longest in 27 years, with the win against Carolina.

Detroit tied the game on a 5-on-3 1:08 into the third period as Datsyuk threw the puck out front from the left side and it went off a Senator and into the net.

Ottawa, though, later found itself with a 5-on-3 after penalties to Helm and Kyle Quincey.

On the advantage, the Senators took a 3-2 lead when Erik Karlsson fired a pass from the slot to the low left side where Ryan one-timed it home for his 11th of the year at 3:51.

The Senators took a 4-2 lead on yet another power-play goal as Patrick Wiercioch blasted a shot on net that saw MacArthur jam home the rebound with 4:02 to play.

Detroit opened the scoring in the game at 13:23 of the first with a power-play marker as Tomas Tatar fired a shot on goal from the right circle that Helm re- directed into the net.

Ottawa tied the game just over a minute later on MacArthur's first of the game after he grabbed a rebound and put it in from the left side.

The Senators then took a 2-1 lead at 15:44 of the first period thanks to a turnover in the Detroit end that saw Chris Neil get credit for his fourth of the season after his shot bounced in off a Red Wing.

Howard stopped 11 shots in the second period, while Lehner made six saves in the frame to keep it a one-goal game.
