Ottawa Senators (11-11-1) at Tampa Bay Lightning (12-10-11), 5 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The surging Ottawa Senators seek their fifth consecutive win today when they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning at the St. Pete Times Forum.

On Friday the Sens posted a 6-4 win in Florida, as Dany Heatley notched his fifth-career hat trick and added an assist to lead the effort at the BankAtlantic Center.

Jason Spezza added a goal and an assist and Ray Emery stopped 33 shots for the Senators, who have won five of their last six games.

Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson extended his point streak to seven games (3g, 5a), while Mike Fisher checks in with a six-gamer (2g, 6a).

Emery continues to play well between the pipes, as he has been in net for all four games of the winning streak. He has won five of his six starts since missing over a week with a sprained wrist.

The Senators played the second portion of a four-game road trip and will visit Carolina on Tuesday. Ottawa is 7-5-1 away from home.

Tampa Bay, meanwhile, has won its last two contests. On Friday, Martin St. Louis scored the game-winner with 2:35 left in overtime to lead the Lightning to a come-from-behind 3-2 home victory over Atlanta.

St. Louis also had an assist and Dan Boyle added two goals for the Lightning, who have won six of their last nine games. Johan Holmqvist made 23 saves for Tampa Bay.

St. Louis leads the team with 14 goals and has three tallies and four assists in his last three games.

The Lightning will host Washington on Tuesday to finish a three-game homestand.

Ottawa swept four meetings with Tampa last season and has won eight consecutive meetings.
