At 4:09 of the third period, Josh Norris’ tip-in effort brought the Senators within a goal and increased the late-game pressure.Kings goalie Cam Talbot stopped 24 of 26 shots to earn his fifth win of the season.Kempe has eight points (two goals, six assists) over the course of a five-game points streak.The Senators are 1-4-0 in their last five games.Beyond the defeat, Ottawa also lost Ridly Greig and Mark Kastelic to apparent lower-body injuries.

Early in the second period, Kastelic was also favoring his right leg after slipping and crashing into the boards.
