Trockeck also scored in regulation and beat Robin Lehner with a
nifty deke in the first round of the bonus format before Pirri
stuffed his shot under the Ottawa goalie. Sean Bergenheim recorded
his 15th goal and Roberto Luongo made 37 saves before stopping Milan
Michalek in the third round of the shootout to end it.
Mark Stone scored his second goal and Clarke MacArthur tallied his
career-best 22nd for the Senators, who have lost seven of their last
eight games (1-4-3). Kyle Turris added two assists and converted in
the first round of the shootout while Lehner turned aside 39 shots
Luongo made 20 saves in the opening 20 minutes, including a
sprawling stop on MacArthur, but Ottawa found a way to get two
behind him in the second. Stone knocked in a cross-ice pass from
defenseman Erik Karlsson at 11:34 and MacArthur deflected blue-liner
Patrick Wiercioch's shot on the power play at 16:11 for a 2-0 lead.
Bergenheim scored off a feed from defenseman Brian Campbell to cut
the lead in half with 2:28 left in the second and Trocheck converted
on a 2-on-1 only 23 seconds later for his third goal to tie it.
Luongo made a big stop on defenseman Marc Methot early in overtime
and Lehner denied Pirri on a Florida power play later in the extra
