Alfredsson gives Senators shootout win over Wild

OTTAWA (AP) -- Daniel Alfredsson scored Ottawa's third straight shootout goal and the Senators rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night in the home opener of their 20th season.

Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza also scored in the tiebreaker against Niklas Backstrom, who made 41 saves for Minnesota.

Craig Anderson stopped 23 shots and denied Minnesota captain Mikko Koivu's backhand in the shootout before Matt Cullen scored on the Wild's second attempt.

Colin Greening drew Ottawa even at 3 with a power-play goal 8:22 into the third period, moments after Ottawa buzzed the net on a 4-on-3 advantage.
