Senators hand Islanders another setback

OTTAWA (AP) - Andre Benoit and Dave Dziurzynski scored their first NHL goals and Craig Anderson made 37 saves and the Ottawa Senators defeated the New York Islanders 3-1 on Tuesday.

Colin Greening also scored for Ottawa.

Travis Hamonic scored for the Islanders, who got 23 saves from Rick DiPietro in his third start of the season.

Benoit's goal at 8:37 of the second period made it 2-0 for Ottawa and came a little more than two weeks after he thought he originally had his first back on Feb. 3 in Montreal. But a goaltender interference penalty that day on Jakob Silfverberg negated the goal.

On Tuesday, Silfverberg made a nice pass to Benoit for a one-time goal past DiPietro.

Hamonic's wrist shot at 2:44 of the third period cut the Ottawa lead to 2-1 and ended a scoreless streak of 103:19 for the Islanders.

Dziurzynski gave the Senators a 3-1 lead at 17:25 of the third with his first NHL goal in just his third game.

DiPietro couldn't handle the initial shot and Dziurzynski poked the rebound home. Senators rookie defenseman Eric Gryba picked up an assist for his first NHL point.

Greening opened the scoring in the second period for a struggling Ottawa power play that came in on an 0-for-24 slump.

With five Islanders, including DiPietro, around him, Greening jammed in a loose puck home for his second of the season at 6:01.

Benoit then added his first in the NHL off a pass from Silfverberg just 2:36 later.

The Islanders put on the pressure, but Anderson held them off until Harmonic scored early in the third.

Notes: The Senators were 1 for 5 on the power play, while the Islanders went 0 for 4. ... Chris Neil reached 1,900 penalty minutes for his career, all with the Senators, in Monday's win at New Jersey ... Islanders defenseman Matt Carkner missed his homecoming Tuesday as he sat out the game with a groin injury. Carkner, a native of Winchester, just outside Ottawa, spent three seasons with the Senators before signing with the Islanders in the offseason. ... Matt Moulson has played in 262 consecutive games, which is the fourth-longest streak in Islanders' history.
