OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) – Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves, Vladislav Namestnikov and Steven Stamkos scored early in the second period, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 Saturday night.

Alex Killorn and Valtteri Filppula also scored for the Lightning, who were playing their first road game of the season.

Chris Neil scored the lone goal for the Senators, and Craig Anderson stopped 31 shots.

Anderson was solid for much of the game for the Senators, but Killorn was able to sneak one through his right arm to give the Lightning a 3-1 lead midway through the third. It was Killorn’s fourth goal of the season.

Filppula made it 4-1 late in the third.
