OTTAWA - The Senators were finally able to find the right recipe to score a shootout victory Monday night.

With the Cake Boss among the gathering of 15,786 at the Canadian Tire Centre, the Senators enjoyed some home cooking with a dramatic 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Captain Jason Spezza scored his first shootout goal of the season to beat Steve Mason and give the club its first win in five attempts in the skills competition and halted the club’s five-game losing streak at home with the first win since Nov. 15.

“You take pride in that stuff. It felt good. I was glad the coach stuck with me. I got the chance and put it in,” said Spezza. “We found a way to win. Our effort has been more consistent the last six or seven games and we got rewarded.”
