OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Marc Methot, Erik Karlsson, Zack Smith, Kyle Turris and Bobby Ryan scored as the Ottawa Senators jumped out to a four-goal lead and beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-3 on Thursday night,
Craig Anderson stopped 35 shots for Ottawa.
Alex Killorn, Tyler Johnson and Victor Hedman scored for the Lightning, who have lost two straight. Anders Lindback faced 27 shots after replacing Ben Bishop.
Two minutes in, Bishop, who was playing his first game in Ottawa since being traded to the Lightning last April, came way out of his net to play the puck and ended up getting kicked in the head by teammate Nikita Kucherov. On the play, Methot scored into a wide-open net picking up his fifth of the season for a career high.
Later in the game, center Valtteri Filppula left the game with a lower body injury.
In the morning skate, Steven Stamkos wore a blue, full-contact jersey for the first time. If he wants to play in the Olympics, Stamkos will have to play in one of the Lightning's 4 games remaining before the Olympic break.
