NHL: Ottawa Senators Beat Tampa Bay Lightning

The Ottawa Senators beat the defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 to remain one of only two undefeated teams in the National Hockey League.

Daniel Alfredsson scored a short-handed goal in the second period to lift the Senators in Tampa Friday. Goalie Dominik Hasek made 23 saves for a win in his 600th career NHL game. The victory gives Ottawa a 6-0 record for the new NHL season. The Nashville Predators are the league's other unbeaten team (6-0).

Detroit scored all of its goals on power plays, as the Red Wings edged the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 3-2 in a rematch of their 2003 first round playoff series. Detroit's Robert Lang, Pavel Datsyuk and Mikael Samuelsson each scored with the man advantage on their home ice to avenge the Red Wings' 2003 post season loss to the Ducks.

In other NHL games Friday, the Columbus Blue Jackets triumphed 4-1 over the San Jose Sharks, and the Colorado Avalanche ended a three-game skid, crushing the Edmonton Oilers 7-1.
