OTTAWA - Jamie Langenbrunner scored twice and Brendan Shanahan added his second goal in three games, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 4-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.
Patrik Elias scored his 21st goal in the first and Scott Clemmensen made 21 saves as New Jersey extended its winning streak to six games.
Alexandre Picard scored a power-play goal in the second for Ottawa, which had recorded points in each of its four previous games (3-0-1).
Langenbrunner scored in the second to restore New Jersey's one-goal lead before adding his second goal of the game 19 seconds into the third to put the Devils up 3-1.
Shanahan, who scored in his return with New Jersey in a 3-1 win in Nashville on Jan. 19, made it a three-goal margin when he put a snap shot past Brian Elliott at 11:17.
Elliott stopped 23 shots in his sixth straight start for the Senators.
Elias opened the scoring 4:54 into the first period, when New Jersey held an 11-8 margin in shots and 27-22 overall.
Picard drew Ottawa even at 1-1 with his sixth goal midway through the second.
Langenbrunner banked in a shot off Elliott at 14:19 as the Devils regained the lead.
The New Jersey captain extended the lead to 3-1 when he scored early in the third.
Notes: It was Langenbrunner's 17th career two-goal game. He has yet to record an NHL hat trick ... Each of Picard's six goals this season have been scored on the power play ... The Senators hit the road for their next three games, starting Thursday in St. Louis against the Blues (8:30 p.m., NHL Network, Team 1200).
