Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - Cory Conacher scored the go-ahead goal in the second period and Craig Anderson made 18 saves as the Ottawa Senators ended the Washington Capitals' eight-game winning streak with a 3-1 victory at Scotiabank Place.
Kyle Turris scored twice for the Senators, who are currently the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race after winning four straight on the heels of a five-game slide.
Braden Holtby was much busier in net than Anderson and stopped 35 shots, but his turnover led to Conacher's tally and Washington's first regulation loss since March 26 against the Islanders.
Mike Ribeiro lit the lamp for the Capitals, who still lead the Southeast Division with four games remaining.
