OTTAWA, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Bergeron and Andrei Kostitsyn scored power-play goals Tuesday, fueling the Montreal Canadiens' 4-1 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Scott Gomez followed 67 seconds later with an empty-netter after stripping Ottawa defenseman Filip Kuba of the puck.

Michael Cammalleri got the other goal for Montreal, which won its third straight game. Tomas Plekanec picked up three assists. Jaroslav Halak stopped 15 shots in the crucial third period.

Mike Fisher picked up Ottawa's only goal while Elliott stopped 23-of-26 shots in the loss.
