Senators 3, Kings 2: Ryan Smyth Tying Goal Disallowed In Final Seconds

Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - Jason Spezza scored the game-winning goal in the third period to lift Ottawa to a 3-2 win over Los Angeles in the only meeting of the season between the two teams at Scotiabank Place.

Alexei Kovalev added a goal and an assist to surpass the 1,000-career point mark while Milan Michalek supplied the other goal for the Senators, who halted a stretch of three straight losses and defeats in four out of five games.

Pascal Leclaire turned away 28 shots to earn the victory for Ottawa, which had dropped three in a row and six out of seven to the visitors entering Monday's game.

Anze Kopitar and Ryan Smyth netted the goals for the Kings, who have lost four of their last five contests following a six-game winning streak. Jonathan Quick suffered the defeat after yielding three goals on only 19 shots.

Smyth tipped in a Jack Johnson shot from inside the left point with three seconds to play that was ruled no goal on the ice and upheld after a lengthy review process confirmed that he used a high stick to direct the puck past Leclaire.
