Senators extend perfect mark

OTTAWA  - Patrick Eaves assisted on two second-period power-play goals and the Ottawa Senators overcame a concussion suffered by forward Dean McAmmond to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Tuesday night.

McAmmond left the game with a concussion after he was sent to the ice by a flying body check from Philadelphia prospect Steve Downie.

The 13-year veteran did not move his hands or his feet while he was fully strapped onto the stretcher and taken off the ice. A team spokesman confirmed he had suffered a concussion, and subsequently moved his extremities, and was taken to a hospital for further evaluation.

McAmmond missed the final two games of last spring's Stanley Cup final against Anaheim after he suffered a concussion when he was elbowed in the head by Ducks defenceman Chris Pronger and knocked out of Game 3.

Eaves set up Joe Corvo's goal at 7:30, which tied it at 2-2, and then assisted on Jason Spezza's tally with 43 seconds left in the second period.

Ray Emery stopped 7-of-9 shots in his first appearance since Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final last spring. Emery, who started each of Ottawa's 20 playoff games, played the first two periods in his return from off-season surgery on his left wrist.

Daniel Alfredsson tied it at 1-1 when he scored a short-handed goal on a breakaway 11:42 in after he stripped the puck off Scottie Upshall. Shean Donovan scored Ottawa's fourth goal 3:22 into the third.

The Senators have won each of their five pre-season games, outscoring their opponents by a margin of 19-10 overall.

Martin Gerber, who started each of Ottawa's four previous pre-season games, made 10 saves in the third.

Stefan Ruzicka and Joffrey Lupul scored for Philadelphia.

The Senators play their final home game of the pre-season Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens. It's another 7 p.m. start at Scotiabank Place.
