Post-game report: Ottawa 5 Washington 2

WASHINGTON (AP) - Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza each had a goal and two assists to help the Ottawa Senators beat the Washington Capitals 5-2 on Sunday.

Ottawa, 7-0-1 in its last eight games with Washington, finished a five-game trip with a 4-1 record after also beating Toronto, Atlanta and Tampa Bay.

Wade Redden, Patrick Eaves and Chris Neil also scored for Ottawa, and Ray Emery made 25 saves as the Senators improved to 38-0 when scoring at least four goals.

Chris Clark and Jamie Heward scored for Washington.

Eaves gave Ottawa a 1-0 lead, beating goalie Olaf Kolzig off a rebound 4:54 into the game.

Washington appeared to have scored the first goal 1:25 seconds earlier when Alex Ovechkin batted a puck out of the air into the Ottawa goal. But officials ruled Ovechkin's stick was above the crossbar and disallowed the play.

Ovechkin went scoreless for the second straight game.

Redden added a power-play goal with 5:55 left in the period for a 2-0 lead, breaking Ottawa's 0-for-17 extra-man drought in road games.

Clark cut the lead to one later in the period, but the Senators made it 3-1 when Spezza scored on a breakaway 7:57 into the second period. Neil scored Ottawa's second power-play goal 41 seconds into the third period for a 4-1 lead.

Heatley scored the game's final goal late in the third period.

Notes: Clark's goal and assist gave him 100 career points. ... Washington's last win against Ottawa came on March 28, 2003. ... Spezza has 21 multipoint games this season. ... Redden's last two goals have come against the Capitals - after he scored only two goals in his first 31 career games versus Washington.
