Turris, Anderson lead Sens past Panthers 4-0
OTTAWA 4, FLORIDA 0

OTTAWA (AP) -- Kyle Turris scored twice and Craig Anderson made
31 saves as the Ottawa Senators shut out the Florida Panthers
4-0 in their home opener Monday night.



Anderson, making his second straight start to open the season,
picked up his 20th career shutout. Jim O'Brien and Jakob
Silfverberg, with his first NHL goal, also scored for the
Senators.



Jose Theodore was strong in defeat for the Panthers, finishing
with 33 stops.



Ottawa opened the scoring with a power-play goal midway through
the first as rookie defenseman Patrick Wiercioch showed some
patience before finding Turris, who beat Theodore with a quick
one-timer.



Turris gave the Senators a 2-0 lead at the 12-minute mark of the
second on a great pass from Guillaume Latendresse. Turris skated
across center and fed the puck to Latendresse at the blue line.
Latendresse then waited just long enough to find Turris right in
front of Theodore's crease.



The Panthers struggled to create much of anything offensively
and Anderson, who is showing no signs of post-lockout rust,
easily handled what few chances they did have. The Senators
goalie was at his best in the third as the Panthers outshot
Ottawa 15-11.



With just over two minutes remaining, O'Brien broke through two
Panthers and beat Theodore through the five-hole to put the game
out of reach. Silfverberg then took a pass from Spezza to pick
up his first NHL goal just over a minute later to round out the
scoring.



Both teams were slow off the start, but the intensity picked up
throughout the game as they fed off the energy of the sellout
crowd of 19,952 at Scotiabank Place.



Monday's game marked the return of former Senators Filip Kuba
and Alex Kovalev, who were booed every time they touched the
puck.
