Tom Pyatt broke a tie with 3:05 left in the third period and Craig Anderson made 45 saves to help the Ottawa Senators to a 4-3 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Wednesday.
Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly pinched in at the Ottawa blue line, leading to a 3-on-1 for the Senators. Matt Duchene passed to Pyatt, who skated in alone and shot past goaltender Frederik Andersen’s blocker.
“To see that one go in felt good, and I haven’t scored in a while personally too, so that felt pretty good for me,” said Pyatt, who had gone 20 games without a goal. “Everyone was having some fun out there tonight and Anderson was terrific. We gave up too many shots tonight, they could have had a couple more but Anderson was big for us. It’s just nice to get a win here, we’re making a little bit of progress the last couple weeks.”
