OTTAWA – Daniel Alfredsson scored his 13th and 14th goals of the season and also had an assist, and Dominik Hasek made 28 saves for his third shutout in the Ottawa Senators’ 6-0 victory over the New York Islanders.

Alfredsson has seven goals and nine assists in his six-game scoring streak. The 40-year-old Hasek, in his first season with Ottawa, has 66 career shutouts.

Dany Heatley, Chris Neil, Martin Havlat and Brian Smolinski also scored to help the Senators improve to 11-2-0 with their third straight victory.

Heatley, who also had an assist, has points in all 13 games the Senators have played, tying him with Marian Hossa for the franchise record. Heatley, acquired from Atlanta during the offseason, has 11 goals and 13 assists this season.

Alfredsson opened the scoring at 9:22 of the first period just seconds after emerging from the penalty box and while the Senators were still killing off another minor penalty to Mike Fisher. A point shot deflected off Senators’ defenseman Chris Phillips leg and went to the neutral zone where Alfredsson had a breakaway from center ice and beat Rick DiPietro low.

Heatley extended his points streak at 15:14 of the first when he banked in a rebound on the power play. Chris Neil deflection a point shot from Brian Pothier past DiPietro 13 minutes into the second period to give Ottawa a 3-0 lead.

Havlat scored his sixth goal in his past three games to gave the Senators a 4-0 lead, wristing a shot past DiPietro three minutes into the third period.

Alfredsson picked up his second goal of the game after being pushed into DiPietro by Islanders’ defenseman Brent Sopel.

Smolinski scored the Senators’ third power-play goal at 13:19 of the third period.

The Senators set an attendance record with 19,776 tickets sold. The old record was 19,661, set during their 5-0 home opener win over the Buffalo Sabres on Oct. 8. Capacity at the Corel Centre until this season was 18,500.

Notes: Jason Spezza reached 100 career points when he assisted on Heatley’s first-period goal. Spezza finished the game with two assists, giving him 34 goals and 67 assists in 124 career games.
