OTTAWA (CP) - Dany Heatley had a goal and an assist and Martin Gerber stopped 35 shots Tuesday as the Ottawa Senators beat the Washington Capitals 3-2.

Daniel Alfredsson and Jason Spezza also scored for Ottawa (30-21-2), which was coming off a 3-1 loss in Montreal a night earlier.

Alex Ovechkin and Donald Brashear replied for the Capitals (21-23-7), who have lost six of their past eight games.

Gerber was making just his sixth start for the Senators since Nov. 28 and first since Jan. 7, when he recorded a 6-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

His 35 saves on Tuesday included 13 in the final period, when the Capitals pressed to tie the game in front of 19,178 at Scotiabank Place.

The closest they could get though was 3-2 after Brashear's second goal of the season at 3:02 of the third.

Olaf Kolzig made 35 saves in the Washington net.

Ovechkin extended his point-scoring streak to 12 games when he scored his 32nd goal of the season at 9:04 of the second period to pull the Capitals to within a goal at 2-1.

Heatley restored the two-goal advantage for the Senators after digging his own rebound loose and stuffing the puck past Kolzig on a power play at 16:31. The goal was the 31st of the season for Heatley who, leads Ottawa in scoring with 67 points.

The Senators finished the first period with a 2-0 lead on goals by Alfredsson at 9:04 and Spezza at 16:52. They could have had a third but Kolzig stopped Mike Comrie on a breakaway just prior to the Spezza goal.

Alfredsson scored his 18th of the season on a soft shot that went through the legs of Kolzig along the ice. As soon as the puck went in, Kolzig shook his head in disgust.
