OTTAWA — Ryan Kesler scored twice and Henrik Sedin had two assists in the Vancouver Canucks' 4-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

The win was the fourth in a row for the Canucks (18-10-1) and their ninth in 10 games. The Senators (13-13-4) have lost three straight and have one win in their past six games.

Alexander Edler had the first goal and Dale Weise scored late in the third to secure the win for the Canucks, who will move on to Columbus for the third stop in a five-game road trip. Roberto Luongo made 24 saves for the win.

Colin Greening connected on a rebound from the slot late in the second period for the Senators' goal. It came after the Canucks had built a 3-0 lead.

Craig Anderson got the start for the Senators and made 24 saves.

Goals from Edler and Kesler in the first period gave the Canucks a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes. Edler scored on a point shot through traffic at 1:10 and just four seconds after the Canucks went on the power play.

Kesler then gave the Canucks a 2-0 lead at 8:23 as he redirected Jannik Hansen's pass past Anderson for his first of two goals in the game.

Kesler's second of the night gave the Canucks a 3-0 lead with their second power-play goal of the game. Kesler was in the right place at the right time and slipped the puck into a wide-open net from the top of the crease after the Sedin twins did some solid work to knock the puck loose from the side of the net.

NOTES: Senators forward Nick Foligno had a six-game point streak snapped Saturday ... With Matt Carkner and Peter Regin getting back into the lineup, Filip Kuba and Sergei Gonchar are the only remaining injured Senators' players. Kuba missed his sixth game Saturday with an upper-body injury, while Gonchar sat out after suffering an upper-body injury during Thursday's shootout loss to the New Jersey Devils ... Nikita Filatov and Zenon Kenopka were healthy scratches Saturday for the Senators ... Andrew Ebbett with (foot), Aaron Volpatti (shoulder) and David Booth (knee) missed their 13th, fourth and second games respectively Saturday for the Canucks ... Andrew Alberts and Alexander Sulzer were the two healthy scratches for the Canucks on Saturday.
