Warren Fügele (46.) and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins with a hit in subnumber (56) provided the final score.
Unusual: None of the two Topstars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl contributed to the list of scorers.
Through the success, the team of Leon Draisaitl built the lead to the Golden Knights in nine of the Conference on seven points – with six outstanding games.
Vegas, on the other hand, is a hard fight in particular with the Los Angeles Kings for the last free space in the west before. The team of Co-Trainer Marco Storm ranks at the same number of games (76) a single point in front of the Golden Knights in third place of the Pacific Division.
Stützle meets again
Meanwhile, Tim Support extended its points series on eight games and once again scored a double pack. At 4: 5 after extension of the Ottawa Senators against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Stützle met for 1: 0 and 4: 3 and thus stands with 20 saisons. In four past five games, the 20-year-old met foursen, of which in each of the past three games.
Already against the Detroit Red Wings he had succeeded on Tuesday a double pack. In the past eight games he was involved in at least one goal of the Senators. Opportunities on the play-offs Ottawa has no more.
