OTTAWA - Daniel Alfredsson had two goals and an assist, helping the Ottawa Senators snap a three-game skid with a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.

Antoine Vermette, Martin Lapointe and Dany Heatley also scored for the Senators, and goalie Martin Gerber made 25 saves. Alfredsson had just one goal in his previous nine games.

Evgeni Malkin had a goal and two assists for Pittsburgh. Ryan Malone and Petr Sykora also scored, and Ty Conklin stopped 25 shots.

After winning six of eight, the Penguins have now lost four of their last five. The Senators won for just the third time in 10 games.

Malkin scored the only goal of the third period as he beat Gerber with a hard shot from the top of the faceoff circle with six minutes to play.

Malone opened the scoring, but goals by Vermette and Alfredsson late in the period gave the Senators a 2-1 lead.

Sykora's power-play goal with just 12 seconds to play in the period pulled the Penguins even heading into the first intermission.

Alfredsson scored a short-handed goal just 90 seconds into the second but Malone tied it at 3-3 a minute later.

Sergei Gonchar took a double-minor for cross-checking midway through the second period and it proved costly as the Senators scored on both ends of the man advantage to take a 5-3 lead.

Lapointe scored his first goal as a Senator when his pass in front of the net deflected off Penguins defenceman Darryl Sydor and in. On the second power play, Heatley scored for just the third time in his past 10 games. His one-timer went off the crossbar and in behind Conklin to give the Senators the 5-3 lead they took into the second intermission.

Notes: Penguins rookie Alex Goligoski recorded a second-period assist Saturday for his first career NHL point in just his second career game ... Lapointe took three straight minors and now has 1,400 career penalty minutes ... With an attendance of 20,153, the Senators recorded a sellout at Scotiabank Place for the 28th straight game.
