Andre Benoit and Dave Dziurzynski scored their first NHL goals and Craig Anderson made 37 saves and the Ottawa Senators defeated the New York Islanders 3-1 on Tuesday.

Colin Greening also scored for Ottawa.

Travis Hamonic scored for the Islanders, who got 23 saves from Rick DiPietro in his third start of the season.

Benoit's goal at 8:37 of the second period made it 2-0 for Ottawa and came a little more than two weeks after he thought he originally had his first back on Feb. 3 in Montreal. But a goaltender interference penalty that day on Jakob Silfverberg negated the goal.

On Tuesday, Silfverberg made a nice pass to Benoit for a one-time goal past DiPietro.

Hamonic's wrist shot at 2:44 of the third period cut the Ottawa lead to 2-1 and ended a scoreless streak of 103:19 for the Islanders.
