Ottawa, ON, Canada (4E Sports) - The Ottawa Senators dominated the competition Saturday blasting the Arizona Coyotes at the Canadian Tire Centre, 7-2.
Coyotes defenseman Zbynek Michalek opened the scoring in the first period to take an early 1-0 lead but Senators' Mike Hoffman tied the game in the 1:09 mark.
Defenseman Marc Methot helped the Senators take the lead in the second period listing two of his total three assists.
The 29-year-old recorded a career high in points and assists in a single game.
"I guess it's not every night I get three points," Methot stated.
Methot with centerman David Legwand assisted in the goals scored by forward Milan Michalek and right wing Mark Stone in the second to establish a 3-1 lead for Ottawa.
The Senators never looked back in the third period outscoring the Coyotes 4-1.
Ottawa's Bobby Ryan started the scoring spree with a goal early in the third which was followed by another score from centerman Jean-Gabriel Pageau for a 5-1 advantage.
Coyotes centerman Sam Gagne scored the last goal for Arizona to trail by just three goals.
But Ottawa's Erik Karlsson and Mika Zibanejad scored the last two goals to ice the game.
Arizona had the edge with shots on the goal having 37 chances compared to 31 for Ottawa.
Senators goaltender Robin Lehner was happy getting his first win since December 13 and said, "It felt really good."
The Senators swept their two-game season series with the Coyotes with a total score of 12-3.
