Senators score twice in four seconds, top Hurricanes


  • Vladislav Namestnikov and Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored four seconds apart in the first period, and the Ottawa Senators defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday.

  • Namestnikov made it 2-0 at 16:47 when Tyler Ennis’ shot went in off his body, and Pageau extended the lead to 3-0 at 16:51 when he took the puck off the ensuing face-off and scored from the left circle.
  • It was the 10th time in NHL history that a team has scored two goals in four seconds or less.
  • The Montreal Canadiens hold the record, scoring twice in two seconds against the Washington Capitals on Nov. 1, 2018.

“We weren’t ready to play, to a man. The first period was a joke,” Hurricanes captain Jordan Staal said. “We gave them three goals and that was it.”

  • Anders Nilsson made 38 saves, and Filip Chlapik scored his first goal of the season for Ottawa (6-9-1), which has won two straight and five of its past eight.

“I think that we just showed that we can beat the top teams in the League,” Chlapik said. “Obviously, it builds confidence. Everyone’s hungry, everyone wants to win, everyone wants to play, and it’s really fun right now.”

  • Andrei Svechnikov scored, and James Reimer made 26 saves for Carolina (9-7-1), which has lost four games in a row.

“It’s soul-searching time for our group,” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “We’re better than what we’re showing right now, for sure, but tonight, that was not acceptable.”
