The Ottawa Senators have had an amazing drive for a playoff bid, beginning with the rise of Andrew Hammond, the fifth goalie in NHL history to earn a point in each of his first 10 career starts. 

The Senators' run continued on Tuesday against the Carolina Hurricanes, as Kyle Turris had maybe the best assist of his career to deliver an overtime win.

With less than a minute remaining in the extra period, Erik Karlsson sent the puck to Turris, who glided from the neutral zone toward the net and faked out two defenders before executing a drop pass to Mark Stone

Stone was in perfect position to send the puck past Carolina goalie Anton Khudobin for the game-winner.
