NEWARK, N.J. - Jakob Silfverberg scored in a shootout and goalie Ben Bishop turned aside 30 shots for his first victory of the season as the Ottawa Senators beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 Monday.

Silfverberg, who set up the Senators' regulation goal, skated in on Martin Brodeur in the shootout and fired a right-handed wrist shot that caught the NHL's all-time win-leading goalkeeper by surprise.

Stephen Gionta scored his second goal of the season in the opening minutes of the game, but the Devils were silenced the rest of the way by Bishop.

Daniel Alfredsson scored for Ottawa in the third period.

Anaheim's Peter Holland and Ryan Getzlaf scored 21 seconds apart in the first period to lead the Ducks past the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 for their fifth straight win.

The Pacific Division-leading Ducks' winning streak is currently the longest in the NHL and they've also won their last five home games.

Corey Perry added a goal in the third and Jonas Hiller made 25 saves for his first win since Feb. 2 against Los Angeles.

Vinny Prospal and Derick Brassard scored for Columbus.

At Sunrise, Florida, Ben Scrivens notched his second consecutive shutout as the Toronto Maple Leafs downed the Panthers 3-0.

Clarke MacArthur and Nazem Kadri each had a goal and an assist to lead Toronto. Scrivens, who got his first shutout last Saturday, stopped 37 shots.

Phil Kessel also scored for the Maple Leafs.

Claude Giroux, Matt Read and Jakub Voracek combined for three goals for Philadelphia as the Flyers trounced the New York Islanders 7-0.

Giroux scored two goals and added an assist, Read had a goal and two assists and Voracek had four assists. Ilya Bryzgalov made 19 saves for his first shutout of the season and 30th in the NHL.

In other games, Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty scored 18 seconds apart in the third period to seal a Montreal's fourth straight win 3-0 over the Carolina Hurricanes, the Colorado Avalanche edged the Nashville Predators 6-5 and the Phoenix Coyotes defeated the Calgary Flames 4-0.
