OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Kyle Turris scored his team-leading 10th goal to help the Ottawa Senators beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Saturday night.

Turris broke a tie with 3:32 left, beating goalie Cam Ward high to the stick side. The Hurricanes challenged the goal, asserting that it was offside, but it stood after a review.

Dion Phaneuf also scored, and Craig Anderson made 32 saves. The Senators have won three straight to improve to 13-7-1.

Sebastian Aho scored for Carolina, and Ward stopped 22 shots.

Phaneuf tied it at 1 at 6:15 of the second with his second goal of the season. Ryan Dzingel did some great work, was patient and found Phaneuf who stepped into the slot and buried it past Ward.

For the 11th straight game Ottawa gave up the first goal. Carolina opened the scoring at 11:24 of the first. Aho put a shot on goal, Anderson made the stop and the rebound went in off Ottawa’s Tom Pyatt.

NOTES: Carolina was 1-2 on its three-game trip. … Erik Karlsson played his 500th NHL game, all with the Senators.
