Canadiens Drop Senators 4-1
Artturi Lehkonen broke out of a 24-game scoring slump with a pair of goals as the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-1.
Lehkonen had not scored since he had two goals on Oct. 30 in an 8-3 win over the Senators in Ottawa.
Jeff Petry, with his third goal in two games, and Tomas Plekanec also scored for the Canadiens, who were coming off a win over Anaheim on Saturday.
Very quietly, Tomas Plekanec has moved up the Canadiens' all-time scoring list. A goal and an assist in a 4-1 victory over the Senators gave the 35-year-old 601 career points.
He sits 13th in scoring in a lineup of mostly all-time greats. Plekanec was a third-round draft pick in 2001 who became a Canadiens regular in 2005.
Mike Hoffman scored for the Senators, who had won their previous two games.
