Recap


SENATORS 5, ISLANDERS 1: Kyle Turris collected two goals and two assists and Craig Anderson turned aside 29 shots as visiting Ottawa clinched a playoff berth for the second time in three seasons.

The Senators, who were playing without leading scorer Jason Spezza and captain Daniel Alfredsson, netted three second-period goals to earn their fourth straight win.

Spezza’s wife gave birth to the couple’s second child early Sunday morning and Alfredsson was a late scratch because of an illness.

Turris became the primary offensive option, scoring Ottawa’s first and last goals of the contest. He also assisted on two second-period markers.

After veteran defenseman Sergei Gonchar’s one-timer put the Senators up 2-1 in the second frame, All-Star Milan Michalek notched his 35th goal just 2:51 later. Michalek added two assists for a three-point outing.

Captain Mark Streit scored the lone goal for the Islanders, who have lost back-to-back contests.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Senators center Jesse Winchester notched an assist in his return to the lineup after being out since Dec. 20 with concussion issues. ... Islanders forward Kyle Okposo’s five-game goal-scoring streak came to an end.
