Jan. 19, 2010 at 11:35 PM

OTTAWA, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Brian Elliott stood up to a 30-shot attack from Chicago Tuesday and led the Ottawa Senators to a 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Elliott limited the Hawks to a shorthanded breakaway goal by Marian Hossa but was otherwise perfect in leading Ottawa to its fourth consecutive victory -- and first win against Chicago since 2003.

Peter Regin had a goal and an assist for Ottawa. Mike Fisher, Ryan Shannon and Zack Smith accounted for the other Senators goals.

Cristobal Huet allowed four goals on 18 shots.

Smith was the first Senator to beat Huet, scoring off a turnover at 6:51 of the first period. Shannon made it 2-0 at 12:31 of the first period.

Hossa cut the deficit in half at 6:18 of the second with a breakaway slap shot.

Regin bumped the lead back to two goals with 1:55 left in the second period. Fisher added an insurance goal with 3:15 remaining in the game.
