Senators 2, Flyers 0

Brian Elliott made 22 saves in his second NHL shutout and Nick

Foligno and Jesse Winchester scored third-period goals to give the

Ottawa Senators a 2-0 victory over the slumping Philadelphia Flyers

on Thursday night.

With 9:30 minutes left, Foligno took a wrist shot from just

above the circle and then put his rebound past diving goalie Brian

Boucher, who had smothered another drive by Foligno a few minutes


Winchester sealed the victory with a short-handed, empty-net

goal in the final minute.

It was the first shutout this season for the Senators, who have

two wins in their past six games.

The Flyers were blanked for the third time in six games. They

are 1-3 under new coach Peter Laviolette, who replaced the fired

John Stevens a week ago after Philadelphia’s two consecutive

shutout losses.
