Flames-Senators


KANATA, Ontario (AP) - Daniel Alfredsson scored with 30 seconds remaining in regulation to spoil a spectacular effort by Calgary goaltender Trevor Kidd and earn the Ottawa Senators a 2-2 tie with the Flames on Friday night.

The Senators had pulled goalie Damian Rhodes for an extra skater when Alfredsson defelected Wade Redden's wrist shot from the point past Kidd.

Calgary, outshot 33-25, got a pair of goals from Corey Millen, but relied on Kidd for the latter half of the game.

Alexei Yashin, with his 20th goal of the season and 200th NHL career point, also scored for the Senators.

A crowd of 13,306 at the Corel Centre roared with frustration as Kidd thwarted a host of point-blank Ottawa scoring chances in the third period as the Senators outshot Calgary 14-5.

Kidd also helped hold the Senators scoreless during six power plays. Calgary was 0-for-3 with the man advantage.

Calgary rookie Jarome Iginla hit the crossbar behind Rhodes in overtime, the only scoring chance for either team in the extra period.

The Flames, who head home from a three-game road trip with two losses and the tie, have a 17-25-6 record. The Senators are 14-22-9.
