"I don't know if they feel that we have an advantage on them," said Daniel Alfredsson, whose shorthanded goal with 5:54 left in the second made it 4-1.

"In today's NHL, we've just got to go out there and work hard for 60 minutes no matter who you play. You can't think, 'This is going to go our way.' "

Tied at 1 in the second, Ottawa got goals 2:06 apart from Milan Daugavins and Bobby Butler. Alfredsson's goal chased Scott Clemmensen.

"We had a decent first period," Florida coach Kevin Dineen said. "But in the second, bang-bang. A couple of goals against, and the rain kept falling from there. A very disappointing game in front of our home fans."

Game highlights: Teemu Selanne scored the winner 7:51 into the third as the Ducks ended the Penguins' home win streak at six, 2-1. The goal was his 656th, tying Brendan Shanahan for 12th all time. They sit three behind the Flyers' Jaromir Jagr and 12 behind Luc Robitaille.

Around the league: Carolina center Tuomo Ruutu, who has a team-high 17 goals, is expected to miss three weeks with an unspecified upper-body injury. He was hurt Monday against Montreal. … Calgary will induct Hall of Famer Al MacInnis into its "Forever a Flame" program. The defenseman played for the Flames from 1981-94, was an All-Star eight times for them and the playoff MVP when they won the Stanley Cup in 1988-89. His No. 2 will be raised to the rafters (but remain in circulation) before the Feb. 27 game against St. Louis, for whom he played his final 10 seasons in the league.
