OTTAWA - Michael Cammalleri, Tomas Plekanec, Louis Leblanc, P.K. Subban and Erik Cole each had a goal and an assist, and the Montreal Canadiens ended a five-game losing streak with a 6-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.

Raphael Diaz had three assists and Lars Eller scored his second short-handed goal of the season for Montreal, which gave interim coach Randy Cunneyworth his first NHL win in five tries.

Carey Price stopped 33 shots for the Canadiens, who scored five unanswered goals, including four before chasing Ottawa starter Craig Anderson 2:03 into the second. Mathieu Darche had two assists.

Jason Spezza scored Ottawa's second goal at 6:49, just 56 seconds after Subban beat Alex Auld to put Montreal up 5-1.

Zack Smith gave the Senators a 1-0 lead with his 10th goal 1:42 into the first.

Anderson made three saves, including two in the first period, when Ottawa held a 13-5 advantage in shots. Auld, who was Price's backup with Montreal last season, made 19 saves.

Eller snapped a shot past Anderson from the left faceoff circle to draw the Canadiens even after Smith put away a rebound to give the Senators an early lead.

Darche picked up his second straight assist as Plekanec redirected Diaz's cross-ice pass in off the bottom of the crossbar to put Montreal up 2-1 with his eighth goal at 12:39.

Diaz got his third assist in a row on Cammalleri's seventh goal at 15:25.

Leblanc scored his second goal in 13 games overall to chase Anderson early in the second with the Canadiens leading 4-1.

Subban made it 5-1 with his third goal against Auld at 5:53.

Cole restored Montreal's lead to four with his team-leading 14th goal with 5:02 to go.

NOTES: Leblanc and Diaz each had their first multi-point game ... The Canadiens have scored three short-handed goals this season. The Senators have allowed five ... A crowd of 20,500, Ottawa's 10th sellout of the season, was on hand as the Senators unveiled Scotiabank Place's partially-completed new video scoreboard, the Bell HD Screen. Large HD video screens were in place on all four sides of the scoreboard's temporarily exposed framework, which will have more displays added to it in time for next month's 2012 NHL All-Star Game.
