It was the Islanders who scored first in this game but then the Senators scored the next five (including three in the second period) goals to cruise to a victory. Mark Streit had New York off on the right foot at the 7:55 mark on a snap shot goal assisted by John Tavares and Matt Moulson. The goal was held up after an official review.
The goal was the last good news for New York on the day. Ottawa tied the game at the 16:44 mark of the first period on a Kyle Turris wrist shot. Turris also scored the fifth Ottawa goal of the day in the third period. In between Turris' two markers were goals by Sergei Gonchar, Milan Michalek and Nick Foligno in the second period. Turris also assisted on Gonchar and Michalek's goals.
Al Montoya made 27 saves in net for the Islanders who have now dropped two games in a row after winning their previous three outings in a row.
