Robin Lehner had a couple of dazzling moments in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Columbus as he made 36 saves to earn another W this season. Lehner kept the Sens in the contest during a first period which saw a frequently shorthanded Senators team give up 14 shots, while only putting five on the Columbus goal.

While the scoring chances were even through one, Lehner was impressed with the way the team rebounded after a slow start to the game.

"After the first I was a little bit worried, I didn't think we had much jump but the boys came together in the locker room here and I thought we had one of our best second periods of the year," said Lehner. "We had a lot of penalties but the PK stepped up and from there on out we played solid. We didn't take as many chances, they opened up and we got our goals. That's what we need to stick to."

Lehner also discussed the much-improved second period performance from the Senators and changes the team is making to their approach in the frame.

"We've been talking about it and just trying to relax and trying to play the second period like everything else — not trying to overthink it, don't just start dumping it in to change and give away possession. We've been trying to do some different things and I thought we did a good job with it."

Lehner picked up his first point of the season as well, picking up an assist off a save that sprung Erik Karlsson onto a 3-on-1 and the eventual game winning goal.

Senators captain Erik Karlsson scored last night's game winning goal in Columbus en route to a 5-2 Sens victory over the Blue Jackets. Karlsson was named the third star in the win as he recorded a goal and an assist on five shots for the Sens in just over 26 minutes of play.

He spoke about the importance of the crucial five minute penalty kill in the second period following Eric Gryba's elbowing major.

"That was a great job. We went in there, didn't think further than the five minutes and all we needed to do was kill it off," said Karlsson. "Technically it was only three but I still think we did a great job. I think overall we're happy with the 5-2 win. "

The captain also had plenty of praise for Robin Lehner's play after the game and spoke to the quality goaltending the Senators have received through eight games of the season.

"We have two great goalies and any one of them can step in and win us games. That's what they've been doing so far and we're happy with the way they've been playing. We have to do a better job sometimes cleaning up and helping them see the puck a bit more. They're doing more than we expected and we're happy about that."
