Prince scores first 2 NHL goals, Senators top Avalanche 5-3

DENVER (AP) — Shane Prince had two goals and an assist for his first NHL points, and the Ottawa Senators held on to beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-3 Wednesday night.

Zack Smith, Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad each had a goal and an assist for Ottawa, which has won four straight.

Craig Anderson made 20 of his 40 saves in the third period when the Avalanche tried to overcome a three-goal deficit. The Senators have a chance to sweep their three-game Western Conference trip with a win at Arizona on Saturday.

Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog each had a goal and an assist, and Chris Wagner scored his first NHL goal for the Avalanche.
