OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Ryan Johansen, R.J. Umberger and Fedor Tyutin each had a power-play goal to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.
Derek MacKenzie also scored for Columbus (7-10-3), and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 30 shots.
Erik Karlsson scored the lone goal for the Senators (8-8-4) in the third period. Craig Anderson made 18 saves.
The ugly game got even uglier after Ottawa’s Mark Borowiecki caught Jared Boll with his head down in the third. James Wisniewski quickly came to his teammate’s defense and fought Borowiecki. The two were tossed from the game once the penalties were sorted out.

MacKenzie put the game away when he made it 4-0 with his second goal at the five-minute mark of the third.
The Senators finally solved Bobrovsky when Karlsson scored his seventh of the season with Ottawa enjoying a two-man advantage at 17:33 of the third.
