Recap: Ottawa vs. Tampa Bay

Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Bobby Ryan and Kyle Turris each had a goal and an assist in the Ottawa Senators' 5-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Marc Methot, Erik Karlsson and Zack Smith also lit the lamp for the Senators, who have won two in a row. Craig Anderson made 35 saves.

"I really enjoyed the game. We got scoring from all three of our forward lines," said Senators coach Paul MacLean. "In the third period we gave them a shorthanded goal and they come back, get the goalie out -- took a lot of courage for them to do that -- and they got one more out of it. But I thought at the end of the day we were better."

Victor Hedman, Tyler Johnson and Alex Killorn scored for the Lightning, who lost No. 1 goaltender Ben Bishop (upper body) and forward Valtteri Filppula (lower body) to injuries.

Anders Lindback stopped 23-of-27 shots in relief of Bishop.

Bishop's injury took place moments before the game's first goal. Bishop dove to his left in an attempt to knock the puck away from Ottawa's Mike Zibanejad, but Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov, who was trailing on the play, failed to jump over Bishop. Kucherov's knee hit the back of Bishop's head.

"I think Ben's going to be OK. I feel for him," said Lightning coach Jon Cooper. "It's a tough play that happened. I checked on him after the first (period) and he said he was feeling pretty good. It was more precaution that we kept him out."

With Bishop hurt on the ice, Methot scored at the 1:49 mark of the first period. Karlsson scored from a sharp angle with 24.7 seconds left to make it 2-0.

The Lightning got on the board at 3:10 of the middle stanza when Killorn scored from the high slot.

Smith made it 3-1 Ottawa at the 6:25 mark when he gathered a loose puck in the slot and used a wrist shot to beat Lindback.

Turris gave the Senators a three-goal margin at 18:40 of the second. Ryan fought off a check in front before dropping a pass for Turris, who made no mistake.

Ryan's team-leading 20th goal at 6:55 of the third gave the Senators a 5-1 lead.

Johnson cut the gap to three when he scored a shorthanded goal on a breakaway at 12:54 of the third. Hedman lit the lamp with 2:52 remaining to account for the final margin.
