OTTAWA  - Martin Gerber made 24 saves for his first shutout of the season in the Ottawa Senators' 2-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.

Alexandre Picard opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 5:04 of the first period and Daniel Alfredsson added an empty-net goal with 45 seconds left.

The Lightning were coming off a 3-1 victory in Montreal on Thursday night that snapped their nine-game losing streak. Tampa Bay is 7-15-8 overall and 2-8-4 since interim coach Rick Tocchet took over for the fired Barry Melrose.

Tampa Bay star Martin St. Louis left the game after being hit in the face by linesman Derek Amell's skate in the final minute of the third period. St. Louis was bleeding profusely while being escorted to the dressing room.

"He got a cut pretty hard on the eye," Tampa coach Rick Tocchet said. "They're stitching him up right now. Pretty good gash."

On the opening goal, Picard got the puck at the left point, took a few strides toward the net and fired a shot over Smith's shoulder.

Notes: Mike Smith stopped 31 shots for Tampa Bay ... The Senators are back home again Tuesday against the Atlanta Thrashers (7:30 p.m., Rogers Sportsnet East, Team 1200). Fewer than 1,500 tickets remain for the game.
