OTTAWA - Daniel Alfredsson scored his second power-play goal of the game with 2:56 remaining to lift the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night in a matchup of the NHL's top two teams.

Alfredsson restored Ottawa's lead with his 28th goal of the season after the Senators blew a 2-0 advantage earlier in the period. He also scored on a slap shot from the point past ex-teammate Dominik Hasek to open the scoring just 1:04 in.

Mike Fisher also scored for Ottawa as he and Alfredsson extended their scoring streaks to nine games.

Detroit scored twice in the third, tying it with 7:54 remaining after Senators all-star Dany Heatley departed earlier in the period with an apparent right shoulder injury.

Brian Rafalski scored on a power play 7:46 into the third to cut it to 2-1. Jiri Hudler evened it at 2-2 when he jumped on a rebound of Nicklas Lidstrom's point shot off the end boards left of the net and drove a slap shot past Ottawa goalie Ray Emery.

Heatley left after he fell awkwardly into the boards while checking Detroit's Dallas Drake behind the Senators' net. He did not return.

Emery, Hasek's backup with Ottawa during the first half of the 2005-06 season, made 27 saves for his third straight win as the Senators extended their winning streak to four.

Hasek, who recorded shutouts in Dallas and against Colorado in each of his last two starts, was Ottawa's starting goalie two seasons ago until he suffered a season-ending groin injury while playing for the Czech Republic during the Olympics in Turin.

Alfredsson's first goal ended Hasek's shutout streak at 135 minutes, 22 seconds.

Steve Yzerman was honored by the Senators prior to the game for his Friday  induction into the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame. The Red Wings legend and Ottawa native dropped the puck in a ceremonial faceoff.

Heatley had his former teammate beaten twice earlier in the game but failed to convert both times. Heatley hit the right post 8:42 in with a delayed interference penalty signaled against Detroit's Dallas Drake. The all-star right wing hit the left post when he shot after he was sent in alone by Alfredsson on a breakaway in the second.

Notes: Rafalski's stick blade sailed high in the air into the left corner after it broke off when he took a slap shot from the right point during a first-period power play ... The Senators are back home again Sunday night against the New York Islanders (7 p.m., Rogers Sportsnet, Team 1200). Fewer than 300 tickets remain for the game ... The Senators will honour Gatineau Olympiques forward Claude Giroux, a member of Canada's gold-medal winning world junior team, in a pre-game ceremony.
