OTTAWA - The Senators skated to centre ice to salute their fans as the final buzzer sounded Monday night.

No place like home.

The doors to Scotiabank Place were officially unlocked to welcome back the Senators and nobody looked more at home than centre Kyle Turris with two-goal effort in a 4-0 victory over the Florida Panthers.

Goaltender Craig Anderson, who upped his lifetime record to 8-0-1 vs. the Panthers, recorded the 20th shutout of his career. He didn't have a lot of tough saves on the 31 shots he faced, but he had to withstand a pushback in the third.
