MONTREAL, Quebec, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Wade Redden, Mike Comrie, Chris Kelly, Mike Fisher and Jason Spezza scored goals Saturday night as the Ottawa Senators beat the Montreal Canadiens, 5-3.

Antoine Vermette, Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson each had two assists, and Ray Emery stopped 37-of-40 shots for Ottawa.

Steve Begin, Michael Ryder and Andrei Markov scored, Sheldon Souray had two assists, and David Aebischer blocked 25-of-30 shots for the Canadiens, who lost for the fifth time in their last six games.

Comrie opened the scoring, giving Ottawa a 1-0 lead at 2:10 of the first. Kelly made it 2-0 midway through the period.

Montreal cut the lead to 2-1 when Begin scored on a feed from Mike Johnson just over five minutes into the second, and Ryder tied it at 2-2 on a power-play goal at 9:14 of the second.

Ottawa scored on a power play of its own to go back up, 3-2, with 3:23 left in the second -- and the Senators scored twice in the first four minutes of the final period to take control.
