OTTAWA – Mika Zibanejad scored 3:17 into overtime Wednesday night to give the Ottawa Senators a 2-1 exhibition victory over the Boston Bruins.

The sixth overall pick in this year’s draft, Zibanejad took a cross-ice feed from Brian Lee and fired a slap shot past Boston goalie Tuukka Rask.

Lee scored the other goal and Nick Foligno had two assists for Ottawa.

Lane MacDermid scored for the Bruins, who got 34 saves from Rask.

Craig Anderson, making his preseason debut, allowed one goal on 11 shots for Ottawa. Alex Auld played the second half of the game for the Senators, stopping all 14 shots he faced.

MacDermid scored at the seven-minute mark of the second period and the Senators tied it just over a minute later when Lee beat Rask through a screen.

SABRES 2, CANADIENS 1: Christian Ehrhoff had a goal and an assist for Buffalo at Montreal.

DEVILS 2, RANGERS 1: Patrik Elias scored 45 seconds into overtime to lift New Jersey at Albany, N.Y.

BLUE JACKETS 4, CAPITALS 3: Alexandre Giroux got a power-play goal with 2:24 left in overtime for Columbus at home.

BLUES 4, LIGHTNING 2: Adam Cracknell scored a tiebreaking goal with 2:20 to play for St. Louis at Orlando, Fla.


MIKE MODANO, 41, retired after 21 seasons in the NHL, a career that includes a Stanley Cup along with 561 goals and 1,374 points, both records for U.S.-born players.

“It’s just time,” he said. “I didn’t get any calls after July 1 and I figured that was it.”

BLUE JACKETS: Forward R.J. Umberger, starting his fourth season with Columbus, signed a five-year contract extension that takes effect next year and will take him through the 2016-17 season.

The Columbus Dispatch reported the contract was worth $23 million.
