OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Milan Michalek and Kyle Turris had two goals apiece to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 6-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday.

Jared Cowen gave Ottawa a lift with a tiebreaking goal on a wrist shot 1:12 into the third period, and Clarke MacArthur made it 5-3 with a tip-in at 12:22. Turris then scored his 25th goal into an empty net.

Robin Lehner made 37 saves as the Senators (31-29-14) won back-to-back games on home ice for the first time since they won three straight in late December and early January.

Matt Stajan, Paul Byron and Sean Monahan scored for the Flames (31-37-7), and Karri Ramo made 31 saves.

Calgary outplayed Ottawa in the second, outshooting the Senators 21-9, but it was tied at 3 heading into the final period.

Byron, an Ottawa native, tied it at 2 when he corralled a rebound in the slot and put a shot into the top corner four minutes into the second.

It was Byron's third career game in his hometown, and he has a goal in two of them. He scored his first goal in his second NHL game for Buffalo at the Senators on Jan. 25, 2011.

Monahan then gave Calgary its first lead when he picked the corner over Lehner's left shoulder at 7:05.
