Alfredsson gives Senators shootout win

Daniel Alfredsson scored on Ottawa's third shootout attempt and the Senators extended their winning streak to four with a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Craig Anderson, who got his first shutout of the season Thursday night at the New York Rangers, was perfect after making 33 saves in regulation and overtime.

Kyle Turris and Jason Spezza scored in the third to give Ottawa a 2-1 lead.

Max Pacioretty scored with 38.9 seconds to tie it at 2 with Carey Price pulled for an extra attacker. Tomas Plekanec scored a short-handed goal on a breakaway early in the third to put Montreal up 1-0.

Price made 23 saves for Montreal, including a sprawling stick save to deny Bobby Butler's scoring chance moments after Plekanec's goal.

Newly acquired Montreal forward Rene Bourque sat out the final game of a five-game suspension for elbowing Washington's Nicklas Backstrom in the head on Jan 3.

Bourque, who is eligible to make his Canadiens debut on Sunday night against the New York Rangers, was acquired from Calgary on Thursday in a multiplayer deal that sent Michael Cammalleri to the Flames.

Scott Gomez returned to the Canadiens' lineup after missing 21 games because of a groin injury. A center throughout his 12-year NHL career, Gomez played left wing on center Tomas Plekanec's line.

NOTES: Senators D Brian Lee was left out of the lineup. ... Gomez, who missed nine games earlier in the season, had four assists in 14 games. ... Canadiens D Alexei Emelin did not dress for the game.
