Ottawa owned a 13-10 edge in shots on goal in the opening period and skated off down 2-1 after 20 minutes. Anthony Duclair opened the scoring with his eighth of the year at 3:08 off an assist from Thomas Chabot. Detroit tallied twice in the period to take a 2-1 lead. In the second period, Ottawa held a 17-12 edge in shots and a 3-0 edge on the scoreboard to take a 4-2 lead after two stanzas. Duclair tied the game with his second of the night and ninth of the year at the 5:00 mark off an assist from Logan Brown. Less than a minute later, Jean-Gabriel Pageau gave the Senators a 3-2 lead with his 12th of the year at the 5:57 mark. That goal was unassisted. Brady Tkachuk made it a 4-2 game with his seventh of the year at 10:22 with Duclair drawing the lone assist. In the third period, the Senators were outshot 16-3 but gave up only one goal to escape with the win. Anders Nilsson made 35 saves in the win for Ottawa, who was outshot 38-33 in the contest.
