Senators Beat Red Wings, 3-1

DETROIT (AP) -- Kyle Turris and Matt Puempel scored in the first two periods and Bobby Ryan added an empty-net goal in the final minute, helping the Ottawa Senators beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-1 on Friday night.
   Andrew Hammond made 29 saves for the Senators.
   Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg scored on the second of two power plays with a two-man advantage late in the second period. Jimmy Howard stopped 32 shots for the Red Wings.
   The Senators limited Detroit's quality scoring chances in the third, helping them improve to 4-1 on the road this season.
   The offensively challenged Red Wings pulled Howard to add an extra skater with 2-plus minutes left, but couldn't score to send the game to overtime before Ryan restored Ottawa's two-goal lead with 55 seconds left.
   Detroit has been held to one goal four times over its last six games.
   Both teams have been struggling lately after a strong start.
   Ottawa had won only one of its previous five games after opening the season 3-1. Since starting 3-0, Detroit is 1-5-1.
   Ottawa was in control early and looked like it was going to take a 1-0 lead early in the game, but Max McCormick's apparent goal that would've been the first of his career was waved off by a Detroit penalty. The Senators kept pressuring and were rewarded when Turris scored with 1:14 left in the first after defenseman Danny DeKeyser whiffed on a chance to clear the puck away from the front of the net.
   Hammond, who played his second game of the season, made a glove save to stop Zetterberg's slap shot on the first of Detroit's two 5-on-3 power plays in the second.
   Ottawa took a two-goal lead on Puempel's goal in front of the net off Ryan's no-look pass.
   Zetterberg scored from the right circle off a redirected shot with 3 minutes left in the second period, pulling the Red Wings within goal.
   NOTES: Ottawa forwards Mike Hoffman (lower body) and Curtis Lazar (upper body) along with Detroit defensemen Mike Green (upper body) and Kyle Quincey (concussion), were scratched with injuries. ... Zetterberg ended a six-game skid without a goal after scoring twice during the team's 3-0 start. ... Turris has scored five of his six goals on the road this season. ... Ottawa hosts Detroit on Saturday night.
