Sens cap perfect pre-season
WASHINGTON - Brian Elliott made 34 saves and Patrick Eaves and Nick Foligno scored back-to-back first-period goals to help the Ottawa Senators finish pre-season play as the league's only undefeated team with a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Sunday.
Their edge didn't last for long, with Eaves scoring 26 seconds later. Ottawa (7-0-0) scored the game-winner midway through the period when Foligno flipped the rebound off Antoine Vermette's shot over the shoulder of Olaf Kolzig.
Washington outshot Ottawa 35-15, but Elliott kept the Capitals in check with several impressive stops, including a glove save on Kozlov's wrist shot in the slot with 33 seconds left. The Senators also killed off all five Capitals power plays.
