NEW YORK -- The Ottawa Senators showed patience in waiting for their opportunities and taking advantage of them.Mark Stone had a goal and two assists, Zack Smith scored twice and the Senators beat the New York Islanders 6-2 Sunday night. Bobby Ryan, Derick Brassard and Tom Pyatt also scored to help Ottawa win for the second time in two nights.This is a back-to-back where we traveled, where we get to bed at 3:30 in the morning and we come here and we win, Senators coach Guy Boucher said. We were playing a very patient game.Andrew Hammond started and stopped all seven shots he faced before leaving with 3:15 left in the first period due to an apparent injury. Mike Condon replaced him and had 18 saves the rest of the way.Anders Lee and Anthony Beauvillier scored for New York, which has lost five straight and sits in last place in the Eastern Conference at 11-14-6. Only Colorado (23) and Arizona (27) have fewer points.Its a frustrating game, Travis Hamonic said. It needs to be a better effort through the end of the game. Right there for the taking again.Jean-Francois Berube made 27 saves in his second straight start for the Islanders. The third-string goalie was victimized by some bad fortune and some defensive breakdowns.Stone scored the tiebreaking goal to put the Senators up 3-2 with 4:57 left in the second period. It came just 56 seconds after Beauvillier had tied it and was the eighth power-play goal the Islanders have allowed in the last five games.When your special teams is at the bottom of the league and your goaltending is not kicking where it was last year, its a recipe for a losing streak, Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. Just look at the teams that were high in the standings at the start and look where they are now. Its all correlated. ... We have to fix (those units).New York captain John Tavares nearly tied it 4:30 into the third, but his shot hit the crossbar. Initially, the Barclays Center scoreboard reported the goal was good, but a review showed the puck hit the crossbar and did not cross the line.We have to continue to keep having a good work ethic, a good attitude and keep believing in ourselves. We have a great group in here, Tavares said. A lot of it starts with me, being a difference maker. I know for myself, try to be better and raise my game to another level.Brassards sixth goal of the year 1:15 later doubled the lead to 4-2. Smith and Pyatt had empty-net goals in the final minutes.Ottawa opened the scoring 10 1/2 minutes into the game when Kyle Turris shot ricocheted off of Ryans elbow and past Berube, who had angled his body to cut off the Ottawa centers shot. Ryans goal was his sixth of the season and his third in three games.New York had a chance to tie the game late in the period, as Shane Prince fired a slap shot that caused Hammond to contort his body before diving to knock the puck away. The Ottawa goaltender sustained a leg injury on the play and left the game. He returned to Ottawas bench early in the second period.Its never good to come in especially when a guy gets hurt and when I saw (Hammond) make that move, right away I knew that was something pretty serious, Condon said. Hopefully he can get back quick.Smith deflected Stones point shot to push the lead to 2-0 with 2:40 to go in the opening period.Thats where I need to go to score, screen and tips, stuff like that, Smith said. When the team is playing well and the puck is going well, if youre there, youre going to get chances.New York halved the lead 27 seconds into the second on Lees 10th goal of the season.The Islanders had a chance to tie the game five minutes later, but Tavares backhander was blocked by Cody Ceci while Condon dove to get back into position.Beauvillier then did tie it with 5:53 remaining in the period. The rookie left wing was sprung for the breakaway by Hamonics stretch pass, and he fired his third goal of the season low and to the stick side.Game notes New York LW Andrew Ladd played in his 800th NHL game. He started on a line with C Alan Quine and RW Jason Chimera. ...The Senators were 1 for 2 on the man advantage and killed all three New York power plays. ...

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas coach Charlie Strong took over his defense to get things fixed and save the season.He designed new coverages. He tried different ways to get pressure on the opposing quarterback. None of it worked.Strongs gamble on himself failed and the Longhorns have lost three straight, including an 0-2 start in the Big 12. Strong is facing open speculation that hell be out of a job after the season if he doesnt pull off a miracle run to the end of the season.So now what?With seven games left and a home game Saturday night against Iowa State (1-5, 0-3) Strong pleaded Monday for fans to not give up on his players.Weve been away for a month. We have seven games left. This is their football team, Strong said. You need support. You cant be fair-weather fans. Were not going to give up hope. We are going to continue to play hard, we will continue to fight .... I see what we have and know the direction its going.Strong, who is 13-17 in this third season, has no choice but to be the public optimist when everything about Texas is trending down.Even his efforts to shake up his defense fell painfully flat. The Longhorns (2-3, 0-2) surrendered nearly 700 yards in a 45-40 loss to Oklahoma with three touchdown plays of 47 yards or longer. Texas defensive backs were still getting beat on deep balls or missing tackles.Everything seems to work in practice, only to collapse at game time, Strong said.Everything is about fundamentals and technique. I told the guys its a simple game we make some complicated. We go out there and practice and knock every one of thhem down.dddddddddddd We cant complete one in practice, he said. You cant have mental lapses in big games.Senior safety Dylan Haines said Strong used last weeks practices to create some new coverage schemes and calls for rushing the passer. Haines did have Texas first two interceptions of the season but Texas rarely pressured Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, who wasnt sacked until late in the fourth quarter.Texas also got pushed around up front as Sooners running back Samaje Perine ran for 214 yards.Some guys kind of just get out there and bright lights kind of hit them and they lose focus, Haines said. Weve got a lot of young guys playing out there and thats going to happen. But for some of older guys, weve got to get that fixed. This cant be a continuing issue or those guys arent going to be playing anymore.Texas hasnt won a game or played at home since a Sept. 10 win over UTEP. That came on the heels of a thrilling double-overtime win over then-No. 10 Notre Dame that had college football thinking that Strong had Texas surging back among the nations elite.That Notre Dame win, Strong said Monday, now feels like three years ago.Strong was asked by reporters how hes handling the pressure to win among fading hopes.Im fine. As a competitor, you want more things to happen for you and its not happening, Strong said. All you can do is continue to coach, continue grind it out. Eventually its going to happen. Its going to turn. ' ' '
