OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- Kyle Turris scored the shootout winner and Dion Phaneuf got his first goal with the Ottawa Senators in a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.
Zack Smith also scored for the Senators. Ottawa has won three straight games for the first time since Nov. 19-24. Craig Anderson turned away 29 shots.
Andreas Athanasiou and Brad Richards scored for the Red Wings, and Petr Mrazek made 25 saves.
The Senators have struggled when giving up the first goal this season but were able to change their fortune on this night thanks to their newest player.
Phaneuf tied it with 3:51 left in the third period when he ripped a shot through traffic to beat Mrazek.
