Post-game report: Ottawa 4 Tampa Bay 0

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Ray Emery stopped 31 shots for his second shutout of the season and the Ottawa Senators beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-0 on Monday night.

Emery, who is filling in for the injured Dominik Hasek, helped the Senators win their fifth straight game. Hasek, a six-time Vezina Trophy winner, injured his groin 5 minutes into his first Olympic game with the Czech Republic on Feb. 15.

Antoine Vermette, Jason Spezza, Mike Fisher and Peter Schaefer scored for the Northeast Division-leading Senators. Ottawa is 37-0 when scoring four or more goals.

Sean Burke made 30 saves for Tampa Bay. The defending Stanley Cup champion Lightning, who open a five-game road trip Tuesday at Pittsburgh, have been outscored 18-4 in three consecutive losses since the end of the Olympic break.

Vermette put the Senators up 1-0 at 2:35 of the first. He scored from the low slot off a pass from Christoph Schubert following a Lightning turnover.

Emery made 13 saves in the first, including in-close shots by Ryan Craig and Vinny Prospal during a Tampa Bay power play.

Ottawa went ahead 3-0 in the second on goals 1 minute, 31 seconds apart by Spezza (11:38) and Fisher (13:09).

Tampa Bay right wing Evgeny Artyukhin received a match penalty at 17:53 of the second during a scrum after he checked Vermette into the boards. Vermette was given a roughing minor.

Schaefer made it 4-0 with 12:41 left.

Notes: Ottawa is 17-2-1-0 in its last 20 games against the Lightning. ... Fisher has a career-high 20 goals. ... Lightning RW Rob DiMaio didn't play because of a lower back injury. ... Ottawa RW Dany Heatley extended his point streak to five games with an assist on Spezza's goal. He has four assists and seven points during the stretch.
