OTTAWA (AP) – Jason Spezza had two goals and two assists and linemates Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson each had a goal and two assists, leading the Ottawa Senators to a 4-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

Heatley needed only 34 seconds to extend his points streak to 21 games, picking up an assist on Spezza’s goal on the opening shift. Alfredsson also got an assist on the play, with Spezza scoring off Heatley’s rebound.

Brad Isbister scored his fourth goal to tie it at 1 in the first, and Nick Boynton scored Boston’s other goal with 19.3 seconds remaining.

Spezza’s 10th goal, a power-play score nine seconds into the second period, put the Senators up 2-1. Heatley made it 3-1 when he scored his 17th goal on another power play at 15:41.

Alfredsson added his team-leading 19th goal 6:21 into the third, teaming up with Heatley and Spezza once again.

Heatley even displayed some goaltending skill moments later, backing up Hasek who was caught out of the nets after making a sprawling save on Eric Nickulas’ shot. Standing at the left post, Heatley had a follow up shot deflect off his skate and along the goal line.

Heatley has 17 goals and 19 assists and is the only NHL player to register a point in every one of his team’s games this season.

Spezza, who has scored a goal in each of his last four games, extended both his assist and point streaks to six games.

The Corel Centre crowd observed a moment of silence prior to the game in memory of Ottawa forward Chris Neil’s mother Bonnie She was killed in a car accident Tuesday.

Notes: Alexandre Daigle holds the Senators’ record for fastest goal from the start of a period. Daigle, now with Minnesota, scored 7 seconds into the second period of Ottawa’s 3-3 road tie against the New York Islanders on Jan. 22, 1995. … Neil has missed three games since learning of his mother’s death while he was with the team in Raleigh, N.C. Bonnie Neil’s funeral was held Saturday.
