Ottawa, Canada (4E Sports) - Mike Hoffman scored twice while Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad recorded a goal and an assist apiece to carry the Ottawa Senators to a 6-2 triumph over the Anaheim Ducks Friday at Canadian Tire Centre.

Ryan Getzlaf scored both goals while Ilya Bryzgalov tallied 25 saves for the Ducks (22-8-5), who suffered just their second loss in the last 10 games.

Michalek put the Senators ahead just 2:03 into the game after redirecting Erik Karlsson's one-timer for his third goal of the year.

Six minutes later, Stone gave the Senators a 2-0 lead after snapping a rebound past Ilya Bryzgalov .

In the second, the shorthanded Senators made it a 3-0 game after Turris snapped the puck into the right corner before Hoffman scored his first goal just 41 seconds later to take a 4-0 lead.

Getzlaf put the Ducks on the board with 44 seconds left in the second, knocking down a one-timer in front. He further cut the deficit 1:49 into the third with his second goal of the game.

Hoffman's low shot went past Bryzgalov's pads and Zibanejad recorded his ninth goal of the year to seal the win for the Senators.
