Senators Down Blues

Tim Stutzle and Josh Norris each scored a power-play goal, sparking the Ottawa Senators to a 4-1 victory Tuesday over the St. Louis Blues.


St. Louis native Brady Tkachuk and Alex Formenton also scored for the Senators, and Anton Forsberg stopped 20 shots. The victory snapped a five-game losing streak for Ottawa.


David Perron scored the lone goal for St. Louis, which is 0-3-1 in the last four games - the Blues' longest losing streak of the season.


Blues goalie Jordan Binnington had 24 saves, but left the ice with 3:35 remaining.


Stutzle's power-play goal on a backhander at 11:35 of the first period gave Ottawa a 1-0 lead. Perron's turnover followed by a tripping penalty against Tkachuk gave the Senators a man advantage.


It was the fifth time in last six games the opposing team has scored first on the Blues.


St. Louis, which had won six of its previous seven games against the Senators, had just three shots on goal in the second period.


The Blues recalled forwards Mackenzie MacEachern and Alexei Toropchenko from AHL affiliate Springfield Thunderbirds. St. Louis also assigned forwards Dakota Joshua and Klim Kostin to Springfield.


The St. Louis host the New York Rangers on Thursday night.
