Post-game report: Ottawa 5 Pittsburgh 2

OTTAWA (AP) - Peter Schaefer had two goals and an assist, backup goalie Ray Emery got his first win in more than a month and the Ottawa Senators extended Pittsburgh's losing streak to six games with a 5-2 win over the plummeting Penguins on Monday night.

Christoph Schubert, Zdeno Chara and Bryan Smolinski also scored for Ottawa, which had lost three of four, including a 2-1 shootout loss Saturday in Buffalo.

Ryan Malone and Eric Boguniecki scored for Pittsburgh, which lost 7-2 to Ottawa at home Wednesday. The Penguins have dropped 16 of 17.

Schaefer assisted on Smolinski's 5-on-3 goal 10:33 into the second which put Ottawa up 3-1 before adding his own power-play goal at 11:39 to increase the lead to three.

Boguniecki, who assisted on Malone's opening goal 1:14 in, scored his third 15:34 into the second to draw Pittsburgh to 4-2.

Schaefer restored the Senators' three-goal lead 51 seconds into the third when he put a nifty move on goalie Marc-Andre Fleury before beating him with a well-placed backhand for his second goal of the game, an unassisted effort for his 13th of the season.

Emery made 22 saves for his first victory since a 4-3 win over the New York Islanders on Dec. 30. Emery, who set an NHL record Nov. 29 with his ninth straight win to begin his career, had allowed 17 goals while being pulled from two of his last three starts, all losses.

Malone was in the right place to open the scoring just more than a minute in. Emery got his glove on Boguniecki's shot and the puck dropped into the crease behind him where Malone swatted a backhand into a wide-open net.

Schubert tied it at 8:57 and Chara put the Senators ahead to stay at 2-1 with his 11th goal 7:46 into the second.

Ottawa center Chris Kelly left with an unspecified upper body injury 15:17 into the second after he caught the brunt of an open-ice collision with Pittsburgh's Brooks Orpik.

Penguins rookie Michel Ouellet fell heavily into the boards early in the third period after he was checked by Senators defenseman Chris Phillips. Assistant trainer Scott Johnson came onto the ice to attend to Ouellet, who leaned on teammate Tomas Surovy for support as he skated off the ice.

Notes: Penguins rookie C Sidney Crosby made his Ottawa regular-season debut. Crosby, who didn't skate with the team earlier in the day, was interviewed by about a dozen members of the media - including TV reporters from both of Canada's national sports networks - two hours before the game. ... C Steve Martins dressed for the Senators after he was recalled from Binghamton of the AHL earlier in the day. ... The crowd of 19,877 was Ottawa's 17th straight sellout. The Senators have sold out 23 of their 27 home games.
