Jakob Silfverberg beat Martin Brodeur to his stick side in the shootout and goalie Ben Bishop turned aside 30 shots for his first victory of the season, giving the Ottawa Senators a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday.

Silfverberg, who also had an assist on the Senators' regulation goal, skated in on Brodeur in the shootout and fired a right-handed wrist shot which caught the NHL's all-time wins leader by surprise. When Bishop stopped former Senator Bobby Butler on the Devils' third shootout attempt, Ottawa (8-6-2) had its third road win of the season.

Stephen Gionta scored his second goal of the season in the opening minutes of the game and Brodeur made 29 saves for New Jersey.

Daniel Alfredsson scored in the third period for Ottawa.
