Sens nip Caps, take No. 1 in Northeast

OTTAWA — The Senators outscored the high-powered Capitals to take the Northeast Division lead Thursday.

Chris Phillips and Alex Kovalev scored in the third period, and Jason Spezza had a goal and two assists in the first in the 6-5 victory. Ottawa won for the 13th time in 14 games and handed Washington its second straight loss after a team-record 14-game winning streak.

Ottawa moved into the division lead with 74 points, one ahead of the Sabres, who lost 4-3 in overtime at Carolina.

"It was a great test for us," Phillips said. "We didn't get intimidated by (Washington's) offensive ability. … We battled back, and that's what's so great about this team right now."

Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said his team put on an "ugly display."

"I thought our defense was horrible and our goaltending (Semyon Varlamov in his first NHL game in more than two months) was horrible," he said. "You're not going to win when you give up six goals and maybe five of them are bad ones and our 'D' can't make a play. It's awful."
