Ducks Stop Sens in Shootout, 4-3

OTTAWA (AP) - Chris Kunitz scored the only shootout goal, lifting the Anaheim Mighty Ducks to a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

Kunitz deked Dominik Hasek and put a backhand over the Senators' veteran goalie on Anaheim's opening shot. Andy McDonald and Jonathan Hedstrom failed to beat Hasek, but Mighty Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside Dany Heatley, Daniel Alfredsson and Patrick Eaves to give Anaheim just its second win in 11 overtime games.

Trailing 3-2, Ottawa tied it when Heatley scored a short-handed goal with 2:28 remaining in the third. Alfredsson set up the scoring chance with a shot from the right boards, which was stopped by Giguere. Heatley drove the net and put the rebound in for his team-leading 30th goal.

Teemu Selanne had a goal and an assist as Anaheim scored three unanswered goals in the second after falling behind 2-0.

Selanne assisted on Kunitz's goal 24 seconds into the second during a two-man advantage before scoring his team-leading 20th goal at 8:20, an unassisted effort that tied it at 2.

Selanne reached 20 goals for the 12th time in 13 seasons. He had 16 goals and 16 assists for 32 points - all career lows - in 78 games with Colorado in 2003-04.

Todd Marchant scored his seventh midway through the period to put the Mighty Ducks up 3-2.

Bryan Smolinski and Eaves scored in the first for Ottawa.

Anaheim won for just the sixth time in 21 road games. The Mighty Ducks had lost four of five, including its last two games in overtime and another in a shootout.

The Senators, fresh from road wins in Edmonton and Minnesota, have lost five of nine, their worst stretch of the season. Ottawa lost for just the fifth time in 22 games in their home arena, the newly renamed Scotiabank Place.

Smolinski opened the scoring on a power play 2:22 in when he beat Giguere through the legs with a long shot along the ice from the left boards.

Both teams' enforcers, Anaheim's Todd Fedoruk and Ottawa's Brian McGrattan, squared off for a lengthy fight just 4 seconds after the goal.

Smolinski assisted on Eaves' 10th goal at 15:44 which put the Senators up 2-0.

Notes: The Mighty Ducks are 0-5 in overtime and 2-4 in shootouts. ... Eaves has three goals in two games. ... Ottawa, which has 19 home games remaining, tied a franchise record with its 18th sellout of the season. ... The Senators have scored an NHL-leading 13 short-handed goals, one more than Toronto.
