Sens salvage some respect, complete season sweep of Panthers

Apr 1, 2011 - 6:23 AM
Sunrise, FL (Sports Network) - Colin Greening scored twice and Craig Anderson made 37 saves, as the Ottawa Senators completed a season sweep of the Florida Panthers with a 4-1 victory at BankAtlantic Center.

Nick Foligno and Filip Kuba also lit the lamp for the Sens, who snapped a two- game slide.

Michal Repik scored the lone goal for Florida, which dropped its season-high seventh straight game. Scott Clemmensen yielded four goals on 23 shots in the loss.

Both teams are now at the bottom of the Eastern Conference with 70 points apiece.

Foligno intercepted a failed clear by Clemmensen and slipped in a backhand for a 1-0 lead 5 1/2 minutes into the game, and Greening's wrister out front made it a two-goal lead 2:30 into the second.

Repik got the Panthers on the board at the 6:02 mark of the middle stanza, but Greening restored the two-goal margin just 34 seconds later thanks to a nifty pass from Marek Svatos.

"We got some momentum and they got one right back. It's hard coming back after that," Repik said.

Kuba tacked on his first foal of the season with 5:36 remaining in the period on a slap shot from the top of the right circle, and Anderson made the lead stand up with 12 saves in the final frame.

"It was a good win for us," Kuba said. "Everyone stepped up and did their job."
