Josh Anderson broke the equalizer early in the third half and defeated Montreal’s team 2–1 Ottawa Senators.
The Senators ended a nine-game losing streak by defeating Habs 3-2 on Thursday.
They continued to harass al-Kindy for long periods of time on Saturday. However, Anderson made the difference by defeating Matt Murray on a comeback after 1:35 in the third period. It was Anderson’s eighth goal this season.
Geoff Petrie also scored the Canadian goal (8-2-2), who has not yet lost two consecutive games this season. Jake Allen responded back 34 rounds.
The imprisonment of Claude Julian gave the team a 200th victory behind the team’s bench, 666 in his NHL coaching career.
Colin White was the only goalscorer for the Senators (2-9-1). Murray saved 30 balls. The Canadians will play their next game on Wednesday when they host the Toronto Maple Leaves.
Al-Kindi led Senators 19-8 in shots on target in the first period and caused several turns.
However, he needed a strong game to score at 6:10. Petrie defeated Murray, when his shot hit the stick of Connor Brown before it shot into the goal.
The Senators responded less than six minutes later, also to the power game. White took advantage of opponent Derek Stepan and was able to disperse the ball between Allen’s platforms.
The tide changed in the second period, as Al-Kindy received three minor penalties, including two for high sticks in the confrontation with Tim Stotzel.
Thomas Chabot confronted Allen at the end of the power game, but the Senators were also unlucky.
Nikita Zaitsev saw one of his shots hit the Petri stick before hitting the bar. For his part, Brady Tkachuk hit a shot from Josh Norris on the post to the left of Allen.
Al Kindy quickly regained the lead in the third half. The Habs defeated it three times to win over Murray after a long release from Petrie. Anderson finally frustrated Murray, relaying a small portion of his network at the end of the streak.
Senators stepped up their attacks on the Canadian network after that. But Allen reacted.
They also had a solid play a little over four minutes before the end, but Chabot, in turn, advanced into the penalty area after more than a minute.
