Hoffman was awarded a penalty shot early in the third period, but lost the puck and never challenged Andersen. From that point on it was all Anaheim.

Getzlaf opened the scoring for the Ducks, tucking one under the crossbar at the five-minute mark, and Silfverberg made it a one-goal deficit after scoring at 11:31. Lindholm tied the game in the final minute of the third.

Coming off back-to-back losses, the Senators looked for a strong start and got that off a couple great chances by Mika Zibanejad early in the game.

The Senators finally got on the board with 47 seconds remaining in the first when Bobby Ryan made a great backhand pass to Hoffman, who beat Andersen short side.

The Senators made it 2-0 when Karlsson scored 39 seconds into the second period. Pageau found the captain with a nice pass through the crease.

Nick Paul did a great job beating Josh Manson in a puck battle and then slid a great pass to Neil, who scored his fourth of the season to make it 3-0 at 16:28.

The Senators power play continues to sputter and is now 0 for 32 with the man advantage in their past 12 games.
