SUNRISE, Fla. - All-Star Tomas Vokoun stopped 43 shots, Tanner Glass scored his first NHL goal and Nathan Horton had four assists as the Florida Panthers beat the slumping Ottawa Senators 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Jay Bouwmeester, Stephen Weiss, David Booth and Gregory Campbell also scored for the Panthers, who snapped a six-game losing streak against the Senators.
Ottawa played its sixth consecutive game without second-leading scorer Dany Heatley, out with a separated shoulder. Leading scorer and captain Daniel Alfredsson was back in the lineup after missing two games with a hip injury, but he was held pointless.
The Senators still lead the Eastern Conference with 64 points, but have lost five of their last six. The victory was only the third in 11 meetings against his former team for Florida coach Jacques Martin.
Ottawa's Ray Emery stopped 35 shots.
Weiss broke a 2-2 tie at 18:32 on a 4-on-3, when he beat Emery on the stick side with a slap shot from the off wing. His goal came in a wide-open second period when the teams each scored twice and combined for 39 shots.
Florida came into the period leading 1-0 on Bouwmeester's goal, but McAmmond tied it 13 seconds in when his routine wrist shot from a sharp angle trickled under Vokoun's blocker.
Glass, who had played in 21 games without scoring a point, gave Florida the lead again at 6:42 when he one-timed Horton's pass on a 2-on-2 rush.
Neil tied it again when he tipped Fisher's turnaround wrist shot from the top of the faceoff circle.
Booth increased Florida's lead to 4-2 at 1:08 of the third with a wrist shot from the high slot through Emery's legs. Campbell made it 5-2 at 11:18 when he put home his own rebound from the goal mouth.
Notes: Martin moved past Toe Blake and tied Pat Burns for eighth place on the career coaching victories list with 501 ... Florida's last victory over Ottawa had come on April 13, 2006 ... Ottawa RW Brian McGrattan missed the game because of a shoulder injury ... The Senators now travel to Tampa, Fla., where they'll face the Lightning on Thursday night (7:30 p.m., A-Channel, Team 1200).
