COLUMBUS, Ohio -- When the puck got past Robin Lehner to cut the Senators lead to one goal in the third period, Ottawas backup goalie started thinking the worst. "To be honest, I was, like, Here we go again," he said. Turns out, he was worrying over nothing. Instead of falling extending their five-game losing streak, the Senators took off and took care of Columbus. Erik Karlsson netted two goals, and Clarke MacArthur and Chris Neil also scored as the Senators topped the Blue Jackets 4-1 on Tuesday night. "Right after that (Columbus goal) we took the game over again," Lehner said after making 32 saves and earning his first win of the season. "We kept on grinding, and they werent in our zone for a while." Lehner more than filled in for Craig Anderson, who was sidelined with a sore neck after a collision with Dallas rookie Valeri Nichushkin on Sunday. He made several big stops that kept the Senators in the lead and helped give them confidence. "It was nice to get this one and, obviously, Robbie played unbelievable and made the stops we needed him to make," Karlsson said. "Hes done a good job covering for Andy so far." Jason Spezza added two assists as the Senators built some steam heading into the start a five-game homestand Thursday night against Montreal. "It was another good step for us," coach Paul MacLean said. "I thought we played a real solid 60 minutes. There were some times when the opposition had some good play, but we handled the momentum swings better. Our penalty-killers were outstanding." R.J. Umberger scored a power-play goal from his knees for Columbus, which lost its fourth in a row. The Blue Jackets failed on three other chances with a man advantage, including one in the final minutes before Karlsson closed the scoring with an empty-net goal. The Senators are 4-3-2 on the road but just 1-3-2 at home. Lehner became the second straight backup to stymie the Blue Jackets. Pittsburghs Jeff Zatkoff beat them 3-0 on Saturday. Down 2-0, the Blue Jackets cut the deficit in half 3:02 into the third period. Umberger ended up on his knees in the slot, stealing the puck off the stick of defenceman Chris Phillips and then whipping a shot past Lehner, who came in with an 0-2-2 record and a 2.73 goals-against average. The goal ended a drought of 103 minutes, 48 seconds for the Blue Jackets. Asked if his team was lacking confidence with the puck or was just frustrated, Columbus coach Todd Richards said both things are factors. "Its in our game right now," he said. "Its not just with the puck. (Lack of) confidence, and frustration. That comes with losing games. "What we have to do is find solutions to win hockey games. It was a 2-1 game in the third. There was an opportunity and we let it slip away." After the Senators killed off a penalty, Neil -- who had two fights in the third period -- pushed the lead to 3-1 with just 6:05 left. "It was kind of a broken play," Neil said. "Spez picked it off in the neutral zone, I came out on a line change, and it ended up being a 3-on-2. I called for the drop and used the defenceman as a screen." The Senators were outshot 13-9 in the first period, yet built a two-goal lead. The first came at 14:51 when Karlsson collected a turnover in the neutral zone, coasted to the right dot, and lifted a wrist shot that beat goalie Curtis McElhinney high on the glove side for his fifth of the season. Karlsson extended his point streak to five games (4 goals, 5 assists). With 3.9 seconds left in the opening period, Kyle Turris shot wide left on a rush. Bobby Ryan pulled the puck off the back wall and backhanded a blind centring pass to MacArthur, who was alone at the doorstep for a one-timer. "Id say its frustration," said McElhinney, who started his second game in a row to give 2012 Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky time to work on tweaking his game after a slow start. "Were getting opportunities (to score). Two of the last three games weve put tons of pucks on net, but Robin was terrific tonight."

. Right-hander Todd Redmond took the loss. Jose Bautista hit his second home run of the spring. Here are a handful of tidbits from around camp: Hutchison impressive The Blue Jays are being cautious when talking about their young arms but internally, excitement is building over the way Drew Hutchison is looking and performing this spring.The CFLs ninth franchise - the Ottawa Redblacks - completed their expansion draft on Monday in Ottawa. The first round of picks featured eight import players and was highlighted by Calgary Stampeders quarterback Kevin Glenn. Glenn, a Detroit native, has played 13 years in the league for the Stampeders, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He was a CFL East All-Star in 2007, and is currently 10th on leagues list of all-time leading passers with 36,666 yards. "Kevin has been a great contributor to our success the past two seasons and we wish him the best in Ottawa," said Stampeders head coach and general manager John Hufnagel in a statement. "Kevin was a true professional on and off the field and I thank him for all the great things he has done for us. "Were sad to see Kevin go, but were confident that our quarterback situation is in good hands with Drew Tate and Bo Levi Mitchell, who benefitted a great deal from having been Kevins teammate these past two years." The Redblacks also selected quarterback Thomas DeMarco, defensive linemen Moton Hopkins and Jonathan Williams, Receivers Wallace Miles and Carlton Mitchell, offenive lineman James Lee and running back Chevon Walker in the first round. DeMarco has played for the BC Lions the last two seasons. "Our philosophy getting into this is to take the best players, it wasnt going to be a function of offence or defence," Redblacks general manager Marcel Desjardins told reporters. "Really, were sticking to that philosophy." "It became a function of having two guys that we felt were the best quarterbaccks available that were not going to be free agents," Desjardins told reporters.dddddddddddd "Thats a key component for us. "Obviously Kevin is very familiar with what were going to want to do offensively, which is a bonus. And we also have a combination of veteran leadership and younger players so we have all the elements in place that we think are going to help us be a strong team, specifically at that position." Walker, who has played two seasons for the Tiger-Cats, will likely be the feature back in Ottawa. Hopkins spent three seasons in the league, two in Montreal and one in Winnipeg, and Williams spent his two seasons playing for the Lions and Toronto Argonauts. Miles spent his two seasons in Winnipeg and Mitchell spent his this past season, his first, in Edmonton. Lee played this past season, his only in the CFL, with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The second round allowed the team to select eight non-import players. The picks were: Offensive linemen Joe Eppelle (Toronto), Alexandre Kruasnick (Edmonton), JMichael Deane (Calgary), and Matt Albright (BC), as well as fullbacks John Delahunt (Hamilton) and Patrick Lavoie (Montreal), linebacker James Green (Winnipeg) and defensive lineman Keith Shologan (Saskatchewan). The third and final round allowed Ottawa to select eight more non-import: linebacker Jordan Verdone (Montreal), linebacker Jason Pottinger (Toronto), centre Marwan Hage (Hamilton), receiver Rory Kohlert (Winnipeg), defensive tackle Zack Evans (Saskatchewan), defensive end Justin Capicciotti (Edmonton), safety Eric Fraser (Calgary), and defensive tackle Andrew Marshall (BC).
