WASHINGTON -- Alex Ovechkins absence added to the Washington Capitals offensive woes and the Ottawa Senators were only too glad to take advantage. Nike Juvenate Australia . Kyle Turris and Jason Spezza scored, Craig Anderson made 34 saves and the Senators beat the Capitals 2-0 Tuesday night to hand Washington its sixth straight loss. With NHL scoring leader Ovechkin out with an unspecified lower-body injury, Washington failed to convert on five power plays. During their six-game skid, the Capitals have scored just seven goals, three of them by Ovechkin. "Yeah, hes absolutely a dangerous goal scorer, leading our team and leading the league in goals," Washingtons Troy Brouwer said. "Wed love to have him out there, but we dont have him right now. Even when he was in the lineup the last few games we still havent been scoring goals." In Ovechkins absence, some of Washingtons other offensive threats were silent. Nicklas Backstrom and Mikhail Grabovski had one shot each. Defenceman John Carlson whiffed on a promising slap shot, fired high on another and was stymied by Anderson on a breakaway. "Their goalie played well, but we had a lot of guys with some really good looks, good chances," Washington coach Adam Oates said. "We have to score some goals. I would say the chances were good chances tonight, and we had a lot of them. It is a matter of finishing." It was the 12th loss in the last 15 games for the Capitals, while Ottawa improved to 7-1-2 in its last 10 games to vault Washington in the Eastern Conference standings. Turris scored his 15th of the year with just over 7 minutes left in the second period when he converted on a rush down the right side. Spezza scored his 13th goal on a power play midway through the third period, rifling a wrist shot from the left wing that went just inside the near post and past Capitals goalie Braden Holtby, who finished with 24 saves in first start since Jan. 4. As they tried to rally, the Capitals didnt get their customary boost from their fans. The Verizon Center, which regularly sells out, was less than half full because of a snowstorm that closed schools and shut down the government Tuesday. "Its a building where they are notorious for coming back and getting momentum," Spezza said. "So to get the two-goal lead lets us play a little different style and with a little more confidence. I thought we played better with the lead tonight in general." It was the 32-year-old Andersons third shutout this year and 25th in his career. He was at his best in the third period when he sprawled for a save to help the Senators kill a penalty and later kicked away a drive by Marcus Johansson. "We played really well for 60 minutes," Anderson said. "From the start of the game to the end of the game we did things we were supposed to do." Washingtons frustration appeared to spill over late in the game when Grabovski received a 10-minute misconduct penalty during a tussle with Zack Smith. "I want the guys to compete and be frustrated," Oates said. "But you cant live in the penalty box. Were not doing a good enough job killing penalties. So that doesnt make sense, either. But I want them to fight for everything we can." NOTES: The Capitals recalled Nate Schmidt to fortify the defence after Steve Oleksy was sent to Hershey and John Erskine sustained an upper-body injury. Schmidt, 22, opened the year in Washington, totalling six points in 28 games. ... The move came a day after Washington sent goalie Philipp Grubauer back to Hershey. The rookie had been pulled from his previous two starts. ... The Capitals play their next five games on the road.

TORONTO -- Never in his 20 years as a general manager has Jim Popp seen a CFL draft like it. Five first-round trades were made Tuesday night as well as another involving an early second-round selection. The fireworks began 30 minutes before the start of the draft when the expansion Ottawa Redblacks dealt the first overall pick to the Calgary Stampeders, who kicked off the frenzied first round by taking Laval centre Pierre Lavertu, the consensus top selection. Popp even got in on the action, swapping the Montreal Alouettes fourth overall pick with Ottawa after it obtained the No. 5 selection from the B.C. Lions for disgruntled veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn. "It was crazy," Popp said. "We even got slowed down by the time it was our pick flipping with Ottawa because they (CFL) couldnt even confirm the deal that was done with B.C. in order for us to do the flip. "Its the most Ive ever been called during a first round or even during a draft to try and trade. It was wild." Toronto Argonauts GM Jim Barker, another CFL draft veteran, was stunned by the flurry of activity. "Ive never seen anything like it," he said. "Everyone was trying to manoeuvre because there werent as many top players." However, Popp said the overall depth of the draft pool prompted the feeding frenzy as teams scrambled to land the players they coveted. "There may not be as many clear-cut guys as someone thinks can start now but theres a lot of guys who can help teams," Popp said. "I told our guys beforehand this was going to be a bit of a crazy draft. "And Im not talking about the trades but just the different directions people were going to go because there wasnt a lot of real clear-cut guys that were going to go in the first round and you didnt know what everybody was going to do." In Lavertu, Calgary secured a player regarded as the most pro-ready prospect. That cost the Stampeders offensive lineman Jon Gott, a five-year CFL veteran who played previously for Redblacks offensive co-ordinator Mike Gibson in Alberta. Calgary also landed the rights to veteran centre Marwan Hage. He played 10 seasons with Hamilton before going to Ottawa in the CFL expansion draft, then retiring last month. The Redblacks will get a conditional pick if the Stampeders trade Hages rights. Calgarys selection of the six-foot-three, 300-pound Lavertu was surprising because starting centre Brett Jones was the CFLs top rookie last year after being a 2013 second-round pick. That could force Lavertu, of Quebec City, to play guard. "If they want to put me at right guard I am going to do it," he said. "Im going to go all out, do the best I can and play to my full potential and maybe have a starting spot." Lavertu, a three-time All-Canadian, watched the draft at a restaurant in Quebec City with family and friends and received a loud ovation when his name was called. "My mom cried but everybody was happy for me," he said. "It was a great moment. "I think Im pro ready for the CFL. Ive worked hard for this, Im physically ready and understand the game so I can learn the playbook really quick . . . I think I will be able to show my full potential." The Winnipeg Blue Bombers, as expected, selected Simon Fraser centre Matthias Goossen second overall. Like Lavertu, Goossen is regardeed as a pro-ready prospect and addresses a need with veteran Justin Sorensen signing this off-season with Edmonton as a free agent. Asics Gel Lyte v Black. Toronto acquired the No. 3 spot from the Edmonton Eskimos, using it on versatile Manitoba running back Anthony Coombs. Not only is Coombs an effective runner but a solid receiver who could also be returning kicks. "It was important for us to make this trade and move up in the draft to get the guy we wanted," Barker said. "We needed to be proactive and go after him. "We believe hell fit very well into what we do on the field." Ottawa dealt its way back into the first round at No. 4, making versatile Montreal Carabins defensive back Antoine Pruneau its first-ever draft pick. Lions GM Wally Buono dealt for Glenn after trying unsuccessfully to move up. With incumbent Travis Lulay coming off shoulder surgery and backup Thomas DeMarco now with Ottawa, the 34-year-old Glenn is a reliable insurance policy. "Hes a proven winner wherever hes been," Buono said of Glenn. "Hes been a tremendous quarterback, hes a great locker-room guy. "We know automatically he will come in here and compete very well and make this a very good football team." Glenn guided Calgary to a Grey Cup berth in 2012 and a CFL-best 14-4 record last year before going to Ottawa in the expansion draft. But the Detroit native asked to be traded after the Redblacks signed veteran Henry Burris as a free agent. "To be honest I didnt know if anything would actually happen," Glenn said. "To give up a first-round draft pick shows a team really wants you. "Thats what I was kind of excited about." Montreal followed at No. 5 and selected David Foucault of the Montreal Carabins, a towering six-foot-seven, 320-pound offensive tackle. Foucault is attending the Carolina Panthers rookie mini-camp this week but hasnt signed an NFL deal. If Foucault reports, hell have a chance to start in Montreal with the off-season retirements of Scott Flory and Andrew Woodruff and Michael Ola signing with the NFLs Miami Dolphins. Edmonton, taking Torontos pick at No. 6, picked St. Francis Xavier receiver Devon Bailey, a physical six-foot-five, 202-pound player who competes effectively for the football. Calgary, with its second first-round pick, took Concordia defensive lineman Quinn Smith at No. 7. The six-foot-two, 305-pound Smith impressed at the CFL combine on both sides of the ball before testing positive for Stanozolol, a synthetic anabolic steroid. Fittingly, the round ended with a deal as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats acquired Saskatchewans No. 8 selection to go with their ninth overall pick. The Ticats took All-Canadian linebacker Bo Landry of the Western Mustangs, then selected Manitoba defensive lineman Evan Gill, the drafts sixth-ranked prospect. The defending Grey Cup champions made their first selection in the second round, 11th overall, taking Western defensive end Dylan Ainsworth. The Riders also sent the No. 17 pick to Winnipeg for its third-round picks (20th and 26th overall). McGill offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, the top-ranked draft prospect, was selected in the third round by Calgary. That wasnt surprising because the six-foot-five, 315-pound native of Mont-St-Hilaire, Que., went to Kansas City in the sixth round of the NFL draft Saturday.
