SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Erik Karlsson scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and the Ottawa Senators won their third straight game to start the season, beating the Florida Panthers 3-1 on Thursday night.

Chris Phillips also scored for Ottawa, and Craig Anderson made 25 saves. Jason Spezza added an empty-net goal with 1:16 remaining.

Tomas Fleischmann scored and Jose Theodore stopped 34 of 36 shots for Florida. The defending Southeast Division champions fell to 1-3.
