Giroux waited out Quick for his ninth goal on the breakaway set up by Tim Stutzle’s stretch pass. Stutzle’s had two assists, while Giroux had an assist for his fifth multipoint game of the season.
The power play became a factor in the second period, with Kaliyev striking twice with the man advantage to tie it. His first came midway through the period, but DeBrincat had his own power-play goal less than two minutes later to give the Senators a 2-1 lead.
Kaliyev then unleashed a blistering wrist shot from the right circle to tie it with 2:25 left in the middle period. It was his first career game with multiple power-play goals, and his six tallies on special teams leads Los Angeles.
Tkachuk’s 99th career goal was the only scoring of the first period. He jammed the puck in at the near post after Thomas Chabot’s shot deflected wide and caromed off the boards to put Ottawa up 1-0 at 4:55.
It was Tkachuk’s second straight game with a goal.
Chabot picked up his second assist in two games in his return from a concussion. He missed five games because of the injury sustained Nov. 12 against Philadelphia.
Kings F Gabe Vilardi, the team’s leading scorer with 11 goals, did not play because of an upper-body injury. He is day to day.
Senators: Host the New York Rangers on Wednesday night.
Kings: Host Seattle on Tuesday night.
