NHL Scores & More: Zack Smith Scores Twice, Senators Rally Against Tampa Bay

The Ottawa Senators scored three times in the final period on Monday, rallying to win 4-2 against the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning, who have now lost four in a row.

Zack Smith scored twice for the Senators, giving him eight goals for the year and five in the last five games. Daniel Alfredsson and Nick Foligno also found the back of the net for Ottawa.

"We've been putting the work in at practice and it's starting to show," said Foligno after the game. "We had the energy and desire out there in the third period and that was big tonight."

Over at the Senators blog Silver Seven, Adnan described Ottawa's comeback:

Midway through the third period, Paul MacLean put the trio of Milan Michalek, Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson on the ice. It paid instant dividends, with Alfredsson slamming home his classic slap shot. Alfredsson wasn't done yet. With less than five minutes remaining, Alfredsson won the puck along the boards, passed it to Jesse Winchester and after Alfredsson shot the return pass wide, Nick Foligno put it into the net at the side of the net to give Ottawa its first lead. Zack Smith iced the game with his second goal after a beautiful breakaway pass by Sergei Gonchar.
