Yule never believe it.

There'll be no Blue Christmas in Ottawa this year.

The Senators played the role of Santa Claus by delivering the victory and the Pittsburgh Penguins must have felt like Santa dropped a bag of toys on their heads as Craig Anderson made 27 stops in a 5-0 pounding Monday night.

The Senators halted their three-game losing skid in fashion as Cory Conacher, Kyle Turris, Erik Karlsson, Bobby Ryan and Zack Smith scored while Anderson had his 24th career shutout in front of 19,838 at the Canadian Tire Centre.
