VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Ryan Dzingel might have found a home on the Ottawa Senators' second line.

The second-year forward had the first two-goal game of his career and Craig Anderson made 22 saves Tuesday night as Ottawa defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-0.

Dzingel suited up alongside Derick Brassard and Bobby Ryan after spending the first five games of the season on the fourth line, and the speedy wing made the most of his opportunity.

"It was easy to play with those guys. They're great NHLers and great people," Dzingel said. "Two good friends, and to be honest I just had a lot of fun out there — just trying not to get in their way.

"I was proud to play with those two guys."

The 24-year-old split time between Ottawa and the AHL last season, registering three goals and six assists in 30 NHL games. He already has four goals and two assists through six games this season.
