Ward, Harrison lift Hurricanes past Senators, 3-2
CAROLINA 3, OTTAWA 2 (OT)

OTTAWA (AP) -- Jay Harrison scored the overtime winner for the
Carolina Hurricanes, and was quick to credit Cam Ward for the
victory.



The Hurricanes' goalie made 45 saves on Thursday night as
Carolina escaped Ottawa with a 3-2 victory over the Senators.



Ward's heroics, which included 16 saves in a chaotic second
period in which Carolina was outshot 17-3, helped set up
Harrison's winner at 2:19 of overtime



"Cam's a great goaltender and he keeps us in games," said
Harrison, who banged home the deciding goal off a scramble in
front of Senators goalie Craig Anderson. "He's a huge part of
our success and we owe that to him.



"The fact we were able to get back on the horse in the third
period and have a few big penalty kills, score a big power-play
goal and then an overtime goal demonstrated we played a pretty
solid road game."



Chad LaRose and Alexander Semin scored in regulation for the
Hurricanes, who have won five of their last seven.



Erik Karlsson and Daniel Alfredsson replied for the Senators,
while Anderson stopped 23 shots in taking the loss.



"We played such a good game, but credit to their goalie as he
kept them in the game and gave them a chance to tie it up and
win it in overtime," Alfredsson said. "We had our opportunities
to put it away and couldn't."



Senators coach Paul MacLean says he can't ask for much more from
his team.



"We want to come back and reproduce that game again and again
and again and again," he said. "We feel we'll get a much better
result if we reproduce that game at that level and at that
tempo."



Ottawa led 2-1 in the third period, but Semin tied it with a
one-timer that beat Anderson stick side on the power play at
12:26.



"Anything can happen in a one-goal game and you just need a
bounce or a break and we got that opportunity on the power
play," Ward said. "We've been stressing special teams all season
long and that we need to get better and the power play was able
to come up with a big goal to tie the game."



Both teams had a number of great chances in the first, but it
was the Senators who took the early lead on Karlsson's
team-leading fifth goal of the season on a great pass from
rookie Jakob Silfverberg.



Ottawa dominated the second period on the shot clock, but Ward
kept his team in it with a number of big saves, including one in
close on Silfverberg.



"(Ward) was real solid," said Eric Staal. "He's really stepped
back into his game and we're going to need him and he helped us
get the win."



The Hurricanes tied it 1-1 on their third shot of the second
when Drayson Bowman made a cross-ice pass to LaRose, who snapped
a shot from the faceoff circle to beat Anderson glove side.



"This was one of those nights (when) you win the game, but lose
on the scoreboard," Anderson said. "We outplayed them, but just
didn't get the results we were looking for. We deserved a better
fate."



The Senators finally solved Ward in the second when Alfredsson
gave Ottawa a 2-1 edge at 16:04, roofing a shot from a
near-impossible angle that fooled the Carolina goalie.



"I was looking for (Senators forward Mika Zibanejad), but saw he
was covered up so thought I'd try a shot," Alfredsson said.
"I've tried it a lot of times and it usually doesn't work, but
it came off perfect."



Mike Lundin made his debut for the Senators after missing the
first 10 games with a broken finger, while fellow defenseman
Sergei Gonchar returned to the lineup after missing the last two
games with the flu.



Notes: Staal extended his point streak (seven goals, four
assists) to seven games with an assist on Semin's goal. ... LW
