(Newser) – Ottawa Senators coach John Paddock shuffled his lines after his team's shutout loss versus Toronto on Saturday. The Sens' 4-2 win might mean those new lines stay intact, as Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley each picked up three points, backing goalie Martin Gerber for his league-leading 13th victory. "It was a good bounce-back game for us," Paddock tells CanWest.

Part of that bounce-back was from Heatley, who had his first goal in seven games while Spezza posted his first points since returning from a groin injury.  Montreal got goals from Christopher Higgins and Guillaume Latendresse on a night when one of the team's all-time greats, Larry Robinson, had his number raised to the rafters.
