Dany Heatley set up Daniel Alfredsson's goal, then scored unassisted, leading the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils for a 3-1 edge in their NHL playoff series on Wesdnesday.
Heatley, Ottawa's two-time 50-goal scorer, took a shot from the right boards that struck Martin Brodeur's right skate and went between the goalie's pads late in the second period to give Ottawa a 2-1 edge. He also helped Alfredsson open the scoring 4:34 in with a centering pass from behind the net.
Mike Fisher added Ottawa's third goal in the third period and Ray Emery stopped 29 shots.
Jay Pandolfo tipped Paul Martin's point shot past Emery midway into the third period to draw New Jersey within one. Brian Gionta had tied it 1-1 on a power play in the second period with his eighth goal of the playoffs.
Gionta's goal ended a 153:33 home shutout streak by Emery, who made 25 saves for his second playoff shutout in Monday's 2-0 win.
Brodeur made 33 saves.
Ottawa moved within one win of reaching the Eastern Conference finals for the second time. Game 5 is on Saturday in New Jersey.
