COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — 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.
