Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Jakob Silfverberg's goal in the second round of the shootout lifted the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday at Prudential Center.
After the first three shooters came up empty, Silfverberg skated in and ripped a wrister high over the glove of New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur.
Bobby Butler had a chance to keep the Devils alive at the other end, but his wrister missed the net and the Senators escaped with the victory.
Silfverberg added an assist on Daniel Alfredsson's game-tying goal in the third period, while Ben Bishop stopped 30-of-31 shots and all three shooters in the shootout to help Ottawa put the brakes on a two-game skid.
Stephen Gionta scored the lone New Jersey goal and Brodeur made 29 saves for the Devils, who have lost two straight and three of their last four.
