Heatley, Spezza and the Ottawa Senators square off against the
struggling Panthers on Thursday.
Last Friday, Spezza scored the decisive goal and Heatley
recorded his second hat trick of the season as the Senators
posted a 6-4 victory over the Panthers in Florida.
Ottawa posted its fifth win in six tries after a 4-1 triumph
over Carolina on Tuesday. Patrick Eaves and defenseman Christoph
Schubert both scored a goal while goaltender Martin Gerber made
29 saves for the Senators, who killed all five of the
Hurricanes' power-play opportunities.
Meanwhile, Florida is riding a four-game losing streak. The
Panthers fell, 1-0, in a shootout against the Montreal Canadiens
on Tuesday, enduring back-to-back shutouts for the first time
Netminder Alex Auld finished with 39 saves for Florida.
