(Sports Network) - A pair of resurgent teams will take the ice this evening at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place, where the Senators attempt to push their season- high win streak to six games in a matchup with the Vancouver Canucks.

Ottawa kept up its winning ways, as well as its recent scoring explosion, with Tuesday's 5-2 home victory over Washington. Mike Comrie netted a pair of goals for the Senators, while Daniel Alfredsson and Peter Schaefer each scored once and assisted on another.

The Senators improved to 10-1-1 over their last 12 games and have piled up 30 goals during this five-game win streak, tallying at least five times in each of those outings.

Ottawa has also won four straight and seven of its last nine as the host. The club is 13-10-1 on home ice this season.

Alfredsson was credited with the game-winning goal for the fourth consecutive game, becoming only the second player to do so in NHL history. Newsy Lalonde of the Montreal Canadiens had five straight game-winners during February of 1921.

The Ottawa captain has amassed 14 points (five goals, nine assists) during a current five-game scoring streak and has recorded a goal in each of those contests. Linemate Dany Heatley (five goals, seven assists) is also on a five- game run, while defenseman Wade Redden has compiled two goals and eight assists during a seven-game tear.

Vancouver has vaulted to the front of the topsy-turvy Northwest Division by winning nine of its 10 most recent games, including the first two of the club's current four-game road trip. The Canucks lead second-place Calgary by one point and Minnesota by two in the crowded division.

2-1 Final.

Luongo stood on his head and stopped 34 of 35 shots.

Ottawa came close in the third, but it wasn't enough. The end result was what you'd expect between these two teams: tight-checking, close score, great goaltending, and some gritty play here and there.
