WASHINGTON -- Marian Hossa had two goals and two assists during a five-goal first period as the Ottawa Senators routed Washington 11-5 Tuesday night, spoiling Jaromir Jagr's return to the Capitals.
Daniel Alfredsson had three goals and Shawn McEachern a pair for the Senators, who recorded a franchise-record seventh consecutive victory.
Jagr had missed four games with a strained right knee.
The 11 goals were the most in the Senators' 10-year existence.
The record for most goals scored by one team is 16 by Montreal in a 16-3 victory over Quebec in 1920.
The most goals scored in a game by both teams is 21, last accomplished in Edmonton's 12-9 victory over Chicago in 1985.
Radek Bonk, Todd White and Martin Havlat also tallied for Ottawa.
Sergei Gonchar scored twice and Chris Simon and Matt Pettinger once for Washington.

Blue Jackets 3, Blues 2, OT
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ray Whitney scored a rare power-play goal for Columbus with five seconds remaining in overtime to beat St. Louis for its first home win.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Jarkko Ruutu scored his first two goals of the season and Ed Jovanovski was credited with the game-winner after a strange bounce as Vancouver beat Chicago.
