TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Alex Killorn and Ryan Callahan each had a goal and an assist as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay also got goals from Brenden Morrow and Nikita Kucherov. Goalie Ben Bishop improved to 14-3-2.

David Legwand scored for the Senators, who have lost five of seven. Ottawa right wing Bobby Ryan didn’t play due to a broken finger. He was hurt in Friday night’s 3-2 loss at Florida.

Tampa Bay went ahead 2-1 on Killorn’s redirection in the low slot of Anton Stralman’s shot at 1:16 of the third. Killorn has five goals and eight points during a career-best seven-game point streak.

After Morrow scored his first goal in 25 games off a nice backhand pass from behind the net by Cedric Paquette at 8:09, Kucherov’s power-play goal made it 4-1 with 6:07 remaining.
