OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Robin Lehner stopped 33 shots to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 4-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

Bobby Ryan, Marc Methot, Mark Borowiecki and Kyle Turris, scored for the Senators (6-6-4), who posted back-to-back wins for just the second time this season.

Andrei Markov scored for the Canadiens (8-8-1) as Carey Price faced 23 shots. Montreal is winless in its past four games.

The game kicked off a five-game homestand for the Senators, who have struggled at home with a 2-3-2 record.

With Ottawa holding a two-goal lead, Lehner was instrumental holding off the Canadiens in the third, stopping all 11 shots he faced.

Despite being outshot 14-6 in the second, the Senators managed to take a 3-1 lead on goals by two Ottawa natives.

Methot made it 2-1 midway through the period as he picked up Markov's clearing attempt and beat Price high.

Just 37 seconds later, Borowiecki scored his first NHL goal as his shot from just inside the blue line made it through traffic.

The Senators didn't get off to a great start in their own end, forcing Lehner to make a number of big saves.

The Canadiens opened the scoring with Markov's power-play goal midway through the first period.

Montreal's lead was short-lived as the Senators tied it less than 30 seconds later. Ryan, with his team-leading ninth of the season, beat Price with Turris creating a screen.

This was the first of five games between the teams this season. Thursday's game also marked the first meeting between the teams since Ottawa eliminated Montreal in five games during last spring's Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

Notes: There was a scary moment for the Senators after RW Chris Neil took a puck to the face early in the third period. He did return to the game. ... D Patrick Wiercioch and D Joe Corvo were a healthy scratch for the Senators. RW Erik Condra missed the game with a sprained muscle in his right leg and G Craig Anderson is day to day with a stiff neck. ... The Canadiens were without Daniel Briere (concussion), Brandon Prust (shoulder), Alexei Emelin (knee) and Davis Drewiske (shoulder). D Greg Pateryn was a healthy scratch.
