Dany Heatley scored two goals for the second night in a row and Jason Spezza also scored twice as the Ottawa Senators wrapped up a productive road trip, winning their fourth in a row by beating Pittsburgh last night, 4-1.
Spezza, coming off a three-point night in a 6-0 win at Carolina on Wednesday, scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period on a power play as the Senators rallied from a 1-0 deficit to close out a 4-0-1 road trip. Their four consecutive wins followed a seven-game losing streak.
Senators goalie Martin Gerber turned aside 26 of 27 shots.
The Penguins, coming off a long road trip that began with three victories in western Canada but ended with an 8-2 loss to the Flyers on Tuesday night, got a scare when star Sidney Crosby hobbled to the bench after a ricochet caught him in the left foot.
Crosby, who broke that foot late last season, was in pain on the bench, but returned and drew a high-sticking penalty that carried over to the third period.
