Day in the NHL: Senators end Capitals' streak
Ottawa • Kyle Turris scored twice and the Ottawa Senators ended Washington's winning streak at eight games with a 3-1 victory over the Capitals on Thursday night.
Cory Conacher also scored and Craig Anderson made 18 saves to help the Senators (23-14-6) win their fourth straight.
Mike Ribeiro scored and Braden Hotlby stopped 35 shots for the Southeast Division-leading Capitals (24-18-2).
While Anderson was rarely tested, he did make some timely saves to bail out his team in the third. With the Senators holding a 2-1 lead midway through the final period, Anderson made a huge save on Eric Fehr when he skated in on net all alone.
Turris scored an empty-net goal with 1:27 remaining to seal it.
