Robin Lehner makes 32 saves, gets plenty of support in Senators' 4-1 win over Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Erik Karlsson scored two goals, and backup goalie Robin Lehner made 32 saves to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 4-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night, ending a five-game losing streak.

Clarke MacArthur and Chris Neil also scored, and Jason Spezza had two assists.

Lehner earned his first win of the season while filling in for Craig Anderson, who was sidelined with a sore neck after a collision with Dallas rookie Valeri Nichushkin on Sunday.

R.J. Umberger scored a power-play goal from his knees for Columbus, which lost its fourth in a row.

The Senators are 4-3-2 on the road but just 1-3-2 at home.

Lehner became the second straight backup to stymie the Blue Jackets. Pittsburgh's Jeff Zatkoff beat them 3-0 on Saturday.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
